Young Dolph has released a new music video for “The Land,” from his latest album Rich Slave.
The new video depicts the rapidly escalating traffic stop that Dolph raps about on the track: “The police pulled me over for nothin’, just because she racist / Two minutes later, it’s five police cars, they got me face down on the pavement.” Later in the clip, Dolph sprays slogans over a police car and takes a bat to its windshield.
In an interview with Paper Mag, the Memphis rapper said “The Land” was an opportunity for him to raise more awareness of police brutality and racism in America. “Certain stuff is being brought to the light and these situations need to stop,” he said.
“I’m speaking out for a lot of people that aren’t artists or musicians. People don’t realize that this is our real life experience and that we’re continuing to go through it. When you think about how many people have also been in those situations that went left, it gets real.”
Besides “This Land,” Rich Slave also featured collaborations with Megan Thee Stallion, G Herbo and Key Glock, with whom Dolph released the joint project Dum and Dummer in 2019.
