Jackson State University is fully leaning into its love for the Paper Route Empire clique. Not only do they show unrelenting love for the late, great Young Dolph, but now they’re making it a family affair. Key Glock is now getting into the JSU fold, picking up where Dolph left off.
On the same day that Jackson State University unveiled their new tunnel paying homage to slain rapper Young Dolph, his cousin and Paper Route Empire artist Key Glock showed up to celebrate with them. Key Glock also gifted head coach Deion “Prime Time” Sanders with a customized Paper Route Empire ring.
The iced-out ring had the PRE logo on top, and at the bottom, it read “Paper Route Empire”, which is the name of Young Dolph’s record label that he started in 2010.
This is coming on the heels of a 66-24 blowout win that Jackson State University produced over Grambling State University that improved them to 3-0 in their young season. The following celebration is what brought Key Glock into the locker room to present Deion Sanders with his ring, as well as being there for the reveal of his cousin’s tribute tunnel for JSU.
Young Dolph and Deion Sanders/JSU were very close, as the former Memphis rapper used to show up to games all the time and turn up with the team in the locker room after victories. Before unveiling the new tunnel look after Dolph, they renamed the tunnel after him when he passed away, naming it the “Paper Route Tunnel”.
When Young Dolph was murdered this hit the JSU football team hard, and it also placed a lot of perspective on their relationship as well when analyzing how much tribute they paid to Dolph since his passing. Key Glock is now enveloped in that relationship.
But the ring isn’t the only thing that Key Glock brought for the locker room celebration. Key Glock also bought some other Paper Route Empire artists, such as Kenny Muney, Hip-Hop Vibe reported.
Last year, JSU and Dolph went viral for celebrating after a win versus Alabama State University and blasting Dolph’s hit single “100 Shots,” a song he made in 2017 after his tour bus was shot up in North Carolina. The record, while it was a banger, was also a diss record to the people that were targeting him that night, and with a song like that comes opposition. For Sanders to get down with that type of energy with no fear of any repercussion for it shows a lot about the bond those two held.
This all culminated in the showing of the new tunnel that was marked by multiple individuals close to Dolph showing up. Key Glock, of course, was there, but also Young Dolph’s girlfriend Mia Jaye, and his two children, along with several other members of Dolph’s inner circle. His son Tre Tre was tasked with cutting the ribbon to JSU’s new tunnel as well.
Glock’s presentation of the Paper Route Empire ring was a sign of gratitude and fortitude between the two, as well as honoring the late 36-year-old rapper. Hopefully, we’ll see Key Glock pick up where Dolph left off in continuing to show up to JSU games and support Sanders and his football team.
Sanders took to Instagram to show his appreciation for the gift while showing it off in a video. Captioning it “Thank u to all the @_paper_route_empire_ & @youngdolph family. Take a Close up look at the ring they blessed me with yesterday.”
