Retirement seemed like a good idea for Young Dolph until it wasn’t. After changing his mind about walking away from the mic, the Memphis rapper is looking to drop an album relatively soon.
The “Major” rapper shared plans to drop an album at midnight Thursday (March 18), but nothing has appeared on streaming services just yet. On March 1, the rapper was considering retiring from hip hop in an effort to spend more time with his family. Dolph has had his fair share of highs and lows in rap. In 2017, he was the target of gunfire on two occasions, with the Sept. 2017 shooting leaving him in critical condition.
His latest projects like 2018’s Role Model and his collaborative Dum and Dummer album with Key Glock were met with acclaim by his fans with both reaching the Billboard 200 chart.
Speaking with AllHipHop, the rapper announced his No Rules domestic tour with Key Glock would be postponed over the coronavirus pandemic.
“While me, Glock, Moochie, Kenny Muney, Grovehero, and the entire Paper Route Empire team have had the greatest time on the No Rules Tour, rocking sold-out shows and vibing with our fans/family, unfortunately, due to the tragic Coronavirus that’s impacting the world, we have to be responsible and postpone the remaining 6 March tour dates on the No Rules Tour to August,” Dolph said. “There’s nothing more important than being safe, healthy and protecting our fans. All tickets will be honored for the new date. Until then, we have a ton of exclusive tour content that’s going up. Be careful and I’ll get with y’all in a minute.”
While the minute seems to be a little longer than anticipated, at least an album is on the way.
