Recently, Young Dolph was placed in critical, but stable condition after being shot in Hollywood. As fans prayed for the rapper to make a full recovery, Dolph reassured the world by tweeting out two simple words: “IT’S DOLPH.” When that revelation hit, fans became curious whether or not Dolph would use his musical platform to address his recent shooting, as he had done in the past with his Bulletproof mixtape. Their questions were somewhat answered once Dolph announced his upcoming album Thinking Out Loud, slated for release on Friday, October 20th. And while the music was probably recorded prior to Dolph’s latest shooting, there’s no doubt that he will pick up where the acclaimed Bulletproof left off.
Now, Dolph has shared the album’s closing track, the reflective “While U Here.” Over a hard hitting, synth driven beat, Dolph thinks back on his come-up, and cites the importance of familial love. “Tell your mama you love her while she here,” he raps. “Tell your pops that you love him while he here. Tell your homeboy you love him while he here. One day you here the next you gone, for real.” Even if the track was recorded prior to Dolph’s harrowing experience, it takes on a new level of significance in light of it.
