Young Dolph ft. Juicy J & Project Pat – By Mistake
The preeminent ambassador of modern Memphis rap, Young Dolph knows exactly when to pay tribute to his city’s unique hip-hop history. Teaming up with two members of legendary Memphis collective Three 6 Mafia, Dolph recruits Juicy J and Project Pat for “By Mistake” (Remix). With a dramatic minor-key instrumental that echoes the menacing music of Three 6 past, “By Mistake” (Remix) is a master-class in flexing, as Dolph racks up a massive tab at Barney’s, Juicy J brags about dining with the Mayor in his signature staccato flow, and Project Pat bursts with drawly aggression. “By Mistake” was one of the highlights from Role Model, Dolph’s most recent project.
Peaking at #15 on the Billboard 200, Role Model provides a new context for Dolph’s braggadocio and sets an example for rising independent rappers and anyone else trying to get out the mud. Role Model finds Dolph leveling up, experimenting with new flows and raising his boastful bars to a superhuman level. Featuring appearances from Snoop Dogg, Offset, Key Glock, Kash Doll, and Dolph’s mother on the moving intro track “Black Queen,” Role Model is Dolph’s origin story, establishing him as a symbol of hope to kids in the hood who desperately want to improve their lives. Earlier this year, Dolph announced the winner for the #ThatsMajorChallenge, inspired by his video for “Major,” featuring Key Glock, offering the choice between $30k cash or a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat to the maker of the best user-generated content for the song.
