It’s looking I’ve got quite a few albums to purchase next week. One them will definitely be Alabama’s own Yelawolf with his debut project Trunk Muzik: 0-60. It’s been about a year since I was first put on to Yela’s music (which is still late IMO), but since then it’s been like a snowball rolling downhill as far as my appreciation for his grind and output is concerned.
Through my homie DJ Burn One, I actually got a chance to meet and kick it with Yela during the DC stop of he and Wiz’s tour earlier this year. Much respect to everyone that tour, too, by the way. They were real down to earth people who just enjoyed talking Hip-Hop, both what you see on TV and the internet and stuff you don’t.
Sirius XM’s Hip Hop Nation recently went “Inside The Studio” with Catfish Billy opening up in regards to a list of topics surrounding his name at the moment. Some of it is stuff we’ve heard before in the past, but that’s the penalty of promotion at times. Through it all though, buddy has remained humble and appreciative. And I respect that. Yela touches on:
-Releasing Trunk Muzik
-Getting cosigns from Raekwon, Bun B & Slim Thug
-Filming the â€œPop The Trunkâ€ video
-Performing at SXSW
-Getting signed to Interscope
-Living in the â€œblog eraâ€
-Releasing his major label debut Trunk Muzik: 0-60 and more!
Kudos to eskay for this.
