HNHH Staff Picks Playlist: Young Dolph, Kanye West, Freddie Gibbs, & More

It was a horrible week for hip-hop fans following the tragic passing of rapper Young Dolph. The 36-year-old Memphis native was fatally shot while on a trip to his favorite home bakery, ruining the week for all fans of the community leader. Dolph was much more than one of the successful independent artists of his time – he was someone who always cared for the people around him, including everyone on his Paper Route Empire label, his family, friends, and more. He was a good person and it’s heartbreaking to realize that he’s really gone.

As a tribute to the great Young Dolph, we kicked off the recently updated Staff Picks playlist with three of our favorite songs spanning his career, including “Penguins” and “No Sense” featuring Key Glock, as well as “Buy My Way In Heaven” by his album Rich slave. RIP Dolph.

Following Dolph’s songs on the playlist, we’ve got some new music from Kanye West, as the highly anticipated “Life Of The Party” featuring André 3000 has finally been released on the deluxe edition of WHERE. The updated playlist also includes new singles from Freddie Gibbs, Rico Nasty, Morray, Styles P, Earl Sweatshirt and more.

Check out some of our editorial staff’s favorite songs from the past month, as well as some older Young Dolph records, in the staff-curated playlist below.
