Young Dolph Gets Postumous Platinum Plaque

The late Memphis legend, Young Dolph, has earned his first solo platinum plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

The certification was officially announced by the RIAA on March 28 for Dolph’s single “Major.” The catchy tune features his cousin and fellow Memphis powerhouse, Key Glock. This isn't his first rodeo with being a part of a platinum hit. He earned his first platinum plaque for his work on OT Genasis’ 2015 blockbuster hit “Cut It,” but “Major” is the first time Dolph has achieved the goal with his own song.

“Major” also marks the first time Glock and Dolph had linked up on a track together since the former’s signing to Paper Route Empire in 2017.

The single had previously peaked at number 47 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts. But even thought it hadn't garnered the success needed to break the top 10, Dolph said it apparently led to a $22 million signing offer from a major label. “It really was a good deal, a super good deal to tell you the truth,” Dolph said. “But it’s just, I see something else,” he said in an interview with Drink Champs before his untimely passing.

The undying support for Dolph by his fans has been overwhelming, pushing him to achieve something he had been working towards. Check out the music video to his song below.
