A few weeks after teaming up with Juicy J and Project Pat for the Memphis-minded “By Mistake” rework, Young Dolph revisits his 2018 studio album Role Model for his latest music video. Specifically, the Memphis hometown-hero reconnects with Snoop Dogg for the lavish visual treatment in support of their Buddah Bless-produced Role Model collaboration “I Think I Can Fly.”

Directed by Gabriel Hart, Young Dolph and Snoop Dogg’s new “I Think I Can Fly” clip takes its inspirational cues from the gangsters-and-gambling comedy flick Harlem Nights, which originally saw release in 1989 and featured Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor.

“I wanted to do something epic and have fun with it but I also love anything that has to do with wardrobes, so getting everyone dressed up in Harlem Nights-era costumes was big to me,” Young Dolph shares via an official press statement, explaining the choice of influences for his new music video. “I chose to base the video on Harlem Nights because it’s a great movie – Eddie Murphy is one of my favorite actors – and I was in the zone of watching a whole lot of movies that black & white movie era and wanted to write a treatment in that same lane. Shout out to Snoop, we always have a good time when we hang. We smoked a lot of weed and I let him know the effect he’s had on my career and he shared a lot of game with me.”
