Ten Rap Songs You Need To Hear: Number Ten


10. Yelawolf – Trunk Muzik

Who – Yelawolf is a rapper based out of Alabama. As soon as you see him you know he is not your typical rapper. He looks more like he belongs on the set of a Rancid video. He is also white, which really isn’t that notable these days to be honest. You can hear him on Big Boi’s new album, on tracks with G-Side or on his latest release “Trunk Muzik 0-60”

Why You Need To Hear This – Yelawolf is a really unique artist. He has some solid lyrics, but it is his delivery you will notice first. He can switch between a normal flow and super fast flow pretty seamlessly, and doesn’t mind doing it a couple times in one verse. He is steadily gaining popularity and his unique flow and image may lead to some serious exposure.  Look for a major label release from Yelawolf in the relatively near future.

The Song –  This song is a solid introduction to Yelawolf.  A slightly spaced out beat that allows his flow to shine.  This song allows Yelawolf to showcase what makes him different.  He seamlessly transitions for a normal flow, to a super fast flow and then to a sing song flow.  He even sings on the hook.  I think most people who hear this song will definitely be interested in his other work.

Extras:

In this BET Cypher, Yelawolf steals the show from up and comers Wiz Khalifa, and veteran Raekwon.
