Young Dolph, "Still Smell Like It"

After championing his independence with the release of his Role Model album last month (Sept. 21), Young Dolph delivers the rugged "Still Smell Like It" visual on Friday (Oct. 26), premiering exclusively on Billboard. Even though he continues climbing up the rap totem pole, the Memphis rapper wants everyone to know that he remains as grimy as ever. 

The inspirational clip kicks off with some words of wisdom from James St. Patrick, better known as "Ghost" in STARZ's hit series Power. "Most of the guys I came up with are either dead or in jail," says the street mogul during a scene from their 2014 inaugural season. "I take all my experiences and use them to get all different kinds of people under one roof. And because I get them, I get rich."

Dolph spits a majority of his bristling rhymes inside the basement of a dark and grungy abandoned warehouse. The scene switches when the "100 Shots" rhymer takes a shady meeting under a bridge with his lawyer, where he's given some news he would've rather not heard, while an ally keenly views the summit from afar.
