Back in July, Young Dolph and Key Glock surpised fans with a joint mixtape that spanned 22 tracks: Dum and Dummer. Since the project’s release, the two have been promoting a good number of cuts from the album, like the single “Baby Joker.” Most recently, the two rappers have put out a new music video for the song “1 Hell of a Life,” the third track off the mixtape.
Running at approximately two minutes and 45 seconds, the song begins with a sinister guitar riff that gets looped throughout the track. It sets the foundation for other vibrant instrumental arrangements: blaring 808s, crisp snares and muted 16th-note hi-hats. Young Dolph takes on the first verse, coming through with his unique Memphis-influenced vocal cadence. Notable lyrics include “Got an old school but it look like a new coupe inside it” or “Independence Day, we pull up and get it popping.” Key Glock takes on verse two, penning bars like “Baby, I’ma keep balling / And if you see me driving in it, best believe I bought it” and “Robbin’ everything, should’ve changed my name to Robert / Don’t go against the grain, I put your brains on your collar.” Accompanying the song is a music video set in Amsterdam, showing off the two rapper’s lavish lifestyle amidst hazy edits that blend seamlessly with the song’s echoing guitar riffs.
