Blessed with unparalleled gifts for crafting punchlines about their lives of luxury, nobody in the rap game flexes harder than Young Dolph and Key Glock. Compiling their opulent magnum opus, the Paper Route EMPIRE duo share Dum & Dummer 2, a new collaborative album. The sequel to 2019’s Dum & Dummer, which peaked at #8 on the Billboard 200, Dum and Dummer 2 finds Dolph & Glock operating at an even higher level of craftsmanship, charisma, and luxury. With artwork that references MTV’s most famous duo, Beavis & Butthead, Dum & Dummer 2 establishes the two rappers (and cousins) as two halves of the same brain, each seamlessly picking up threads and finishing lines that the other leaves off.
The album spans 20-tracks, boasting production from PRE’s own Bandplay, who shows off his musicality and versatility, along with beats from Memphis native Sosa808 and decorated producer Ramy On The Beat. Dum & Dummer 2 is home to a series of standout singles, including the hauntingly flex-heavy“Case Closed,” the soulful winter-weather celebration “Aspen,” and the classily ratchet “Sleep With The Roaches,” which dropped last week. Dum and Dummer 2 features several solo songs from both Young Dolph and Key Glock interspersed with the heavy-hitting tag-team tracks, including Key Glock’s bombastic “I’m The Type,” and Dolph’s bite-sized ad-lib-athon “Yeeh Yeeh.”
Along with the album, Dolph & Glock share the video for “Penguins,” the tape’s ice-cold opening track. Populated by ping-ponging synths and whirring melodies from Bandplay, “Penguins” is a hauntingly percussive Tennessee trap banger. Dolph and Glock take turns setting the tone for their verses throughout the tape, showing off their playfully competitive dynamic and using entrancing repetition to hammer their points home. “It’s a big difference that’s between me and you/I can show you how to hustle, how to ball, and how to shoot/I been doin’ this since a jit, lil b*tch, this sh*t ain’t nothin’ new,” spits Glock. In the video, Dolph and Glock show us how they live, as they take their luxury vehicles to Downtown Memphis, connecting at a gas station and then the club.
Continuing the Memphis natives’ reign as two of the game’s most uncompromising and exciting independent superstars, Dum & Dummer 2 is the most extensive glimpse yet at Dolph & Glock’s extravagantly expensive lifestyles. Dum & Dummer 2 is available everywhere via Paper Route EMPIRE.
