The national tour is a celebration of the Memphis rapper’s life and music, and commemorates his posthumous album.

Young Dolph’s legacy lives on in a traveling interactive pop-up museum tour honoring the Memphis-native, who passed away in November 2021. The late rapper’s record label, Paper Route Empire, and the pioneering hip-hop museum, Trap Museum, co-founded the temporary exhibition space. In honor of his posthumously released album Paper Route Bank, the museum showcases exhibits spanning Dolph’s entire career.

According to Rolling Out, as soon as you enter the museum, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a corner store, complete with a selection of Dolphland goods for sale. After surviving over 100 shots fired at his SUV in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 2017, Dolph filmed his “100 Shots” video outside of a corner store. The second activation that shows where the rapper created his music is a section with a painting of the door to Dolph’s apartment.

You can also relive some of the most momentous times in Dolph’s life and career, from the very beginning through his tragic end. In addition to a blue room showcasing Dolph’s hit records and a statue of the late rapper, the museum included a section with cannabis and other pastimes Dolph mentioned in his music. Visitors can stop by the Paper Route Entertainment room to take pictures in a setting reminiscent of his “Paper Route Frank” album cover.

“When we were approached with this vision for Dolphland, it was a no-brainer,” Krystal “KG” Garner, Partnerships Director for Trap Music Museum told Rolling Out.

“The opportunity to create a moment where true Young Dolph fans could experience and enjoy a story told of a true legend, priceless,” Garner added. “I’ve been on tour throughout all of the cities and the love has been out of this world. I truly hope we have made his family proud. The team really put something together that will leave a mark in hip-hop history. Street Execs and PRE are a true family that welcomed us in and we are happy to be a part of the Dolphland experience.”

On April 1st, 2023, Dolphland will be making a stop in Atlanta as part of their tour. Visit thedolphlandmuseum.com for information on how to RSVP for free admission.
