If you’ve been following Flagrant City this past year, you would have casually seen a log of posts and promotion behind Michigan artist Frank Dolla who has teamed up with us to exclusively release his latest EP, CAESAR.
Check out the exclusive interview with Young Hustle Global’s frontman Frank Dolla, also known as Ben Frank where I (Lowe) sit down with Ben and cover an array of topics, from the state of hip-hop, to his role in music and more.
We also released a lead single “Swerve,” which is available for download, with an official visual releasing soon, in addition to a teaser single geared to prep listeners for the EP, entitled “Politics As Usual,” which also has a video accompanying it.
This album is geared to give you a look into the life of the betrayed, and the rise and fall of an empire. Welcome to YHG, presented in part by Flagrant City.
This video is for the 1st official single from YHG (Young Hustle Gang) Frontman, Frank Dolla‘s upcoming CAESAR EP. Most recent project was a group compilation entitled Work To Eat Vol 1. Visuals tactfully shot and edited by G6ix

In the words of Frank Dolla himself: “I pride myself on telling the truth in my music. I’ve always had a gift of remembering alot of different moments, whether it be my pre-school graduation, or the 1st time I saw a drive-by. I used this verse to key in on my mind frame at that time as well as giving you insight on certain events that molded who I am today. As I speak, I’m wrapping up the recording process of my next project “CAESAR“, but I just wanted to leave you with a little more to hold you over until then…”
Here’s a track entitled ” Mookie” from Frank Dolla’s future release, Flowsevelt for President, dropping later this year.
Frank explains to us why he named this song the way he did:
“I called it “Mookie” because I’m nothing like any of these Gangster movie main characters, and with “Do The Right Thing” being one of my favorite movies, naturally I picked “Mookie.” Also because Spike Lee (A GENIUS) used Mookie to introduce and establish different characters throughout the movie, and I feel as though the numerous flows I used in this song could be used as characters as well… But anyway.. Enjoy.”
