In 2016, his music broke into the radio, where Young Dolph made himself into a household name. Since then, Dolph has gotten into high profile beef with Yo Gotti, and made his own business moves. He infamously burned a check from a major label.

Young Dolph talked to N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN on “Drink Champs,” where he explained all of this. First, he discussed his humble Memphis beginnings. Then, he got into it about how the industry has changed, why he stayed independent, and the labels who tried to sign him.
