Young Dolph s new project Bulletproof is partially inspired by an incident in Charlotte where the rapper was shot at close to 100 times. The first four songs on the project form a full sentence when read in sequence (“100 Shots” “In Charlotte” “But I’m Bulletproof” “So Fuck’em”). The second of these 4 songs, “In Charlotte,” is a dark Metro Boomin-produced track. The narrative of the song begins just before the shooting, as Dolph throws “a dub at Cameo in Charlotte,” but his celebration is interrupted by a phonecall halfway through — “What the fuck happened up there man?” … “That n—a shot all the motherfuckin’ bullets, ain’t hit shit.”
In his second verse, Dolph reacts to making headlines and reflects on why he’s been targeted. “That’s why all these young n—s ridin’ ’round with they gun,” he raps. “Front page newspaper, number one topic / N—as mad at Dolph Obama just ’cause I’m the hottest Produced by Zaytoven, the song serves as the second single off the 10-track body of work, which was inspired by a shooting that targeted the Memphis emcee’s SUV during CIAA back in February.
