Young Dolph hand-picked the roster of his label Paper Route Empire, selecting artists who shared his work ethic, hunger, and love for the art of rhyming. Even before signing to PRE, Kenny Muney had a special relationship with Dolph, who plucked him out of the Memphis streets and gave him hope, guidance, and an opportunity to become a successful rapper. Today, shortly after the release of Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph, Kenny shares the video for “Role Model.” Adorned with lush harmonies and a heartbreaking, earnest feel, “Role Model” finds Kenny baring his soul, the South Memphis native audibly emotional when he mourns Dolph with equal parts grief and gratitude for the time they spent together: “You ever lost a part of your heart and can’t nothing soothe it?/Have you ever been sad at the ending of a good movie?”
The video for “Role Model” opens with a clip of Dolph in an interview, discussing his plans for the future of PRE to be much grander than its founder, before giving a shoutout to his latest signee, Kenny Muney.
