Inspiration: Yelawolf

What kind of music fan am I? Thanks for asking. I can best be described as an avid…no, scratch that, a rabid rap fan! However, I don’t have time for any backpacker lyricists or socially conscious emcees. For me it’s all about effortless flow and stand alone creativity. Earlier this year I was blessed with the opportunity to add such an artist to my personally celebrated catalog, I.E. Yelawolf.

This Alabama native looks like a punk rocker, raps like Bizzy Bone’s heir, and has a bass heavy sound all his own. I first heard his semi-automatic style on the Juelz Santana crossover “Mixin’ up the Medicine”. I have to admit that at the time, (though I appreciated his delivery), I didn’t expect to follow his career. Then I heard/saw “Pop the Trunk,” and everything changed. The aforementioned song remains one my most memorable tracks of 2010. A haunting series of short tales backed with trunk rattling bass, Pop the Trunk is like a ghetto ghost-story for the masses.

Next I purchased a bootleg copy of his mixtape “Trunk Muzik,” and thereafter ‘following his career’ is something that’s second nature for me. For Example: this past spring he signed to Interscope Records; earlier this summer he teamed up with Outkast’s ambassador Big Boi; and just this week he released a freestyle over the Rick Ross hit “BMF”. Yet, what excites me most is the fact that this Sunday he will be in Toronto to burn one with the North. Be sure to see him September 28th @ The Sound Academy. With Wiz Khalifa joining him it goes without question that this tattooed duo is sure to set the city on fire… or at least go up in smoke.
