Young Dolph flirts with the idea of leaving the rap game on a high note.

Dolph himself has already amassed a solid discography under his belt, having dropped off eighteen mixtapes and six studio albums since coming into the game in 2008. Many artists might simply call it a day after that much music, and a new story from Dolph’s recently-scrubbed-clean Instagram page suggests he might be flirting with the idea of retirement himself.

“Highly considering quitting music because I wanna be with my kids 24/7,” he writes, with an emphatic shrug emoji. A fair point and one that might be wholly understandable were it not for the following (confrontational) slide. “Yall n***as never touched a vacuum sealer until your rap career took off, just to look cool,” he challenges. “Yall n***as ass backwards.” Adding insult to injury, he punctuates his statement with the increasingly popular clown emoji.

It’s unclear if there is a correlation to be made here; perhaps Dolph is growing increasingly frustrated with the more performative nature of the rap game, which in itself seems to glorify some of the bleaker aspects of his own experience.
