“I’m loving this shit,” explains Dolph. “My team help me put it all together It’s about being creative as possible.”
Young Dolph is also sharing “Believe Me,” his first video since being shot twice in the arm and once in the leg in Los Angeles last month. In “Believe Me,” Dolph pensively ruminates on his recent life from his hospital bed, reflecting on his shooting but emboldened by his success. The video includes rare and emotional footage of Dolph’s discharge from the hospital and his reunion with his family. Premiered by Billboard, “Believe Me” is the first video from Thinking Out Loud.
“It’s a personal ass song about what I’m dealing with, my inner life, feelings, about close friendships disintegrating over some bullshit,” explains Young Dolph. “You can hear it in the second verse, the song is about family and morals. You either get a life or you don’t. When I was recording the song, I knew I had to have my kids in the video, the only difference is that I shot it in California instead of Memphis or Atlanta. This has nothing to do with the shooting. It’s calling out all the n*ggas, it’s pulling every man’s card. If you work every day, say at FedEx or as a school teacher, you know you’re doing what you gotta to do feed your family and this song will resonate with you. If you ain’t living right, you’re gonna feel like this song is calling you out. Don’t anybody supposed to raise your kids but you. A lot of folks don’t step up to the plate. My kids are my first priority in the world. It’s really my favorite song.”
