Las Vegas, United States Yelawolf with Fefe

The very day Yelawolf was born, his teenage mother strapped him into a stroller and rolled him around the mall. The first week of his life, she took him to house parties, and by the time he left high school, the family had roamed to so many towns that Yelawolf had attended 15 different schools.
I really never ever stopped moving, he says while driving around Nashville, his home of the past three years. Thats my life story in a nutshell.
With his latest release, Love Story, perhaps he can finally downshift. Since 2010s Trunk Muzik, his career has been on the fast track. His appearancehis tattoos include a catfish swimming down his forearm and Heart of Dixie stamped on his stomachand raps about Appalachian meth dealers mightve made him a novelty act. But his rapid-fire delivery and intense live show ensured no one considered him a joke. As Pitchfork marveled, Yelawolf is a powerful new rap voice, one that draws from all over the map without sounding much like anyone else. Interscope Records agreed and within three months, he had a major label deal. Later that year, the tape was re-released as Trunk Muzik 0-60, and Rolling Stone praised him as an MC whose liquid flow breathes life into genre clichs. In January 2011, he signed to Eminems Shady Records, and his fan base grew even more rabid. Yet Wolf wasnt satisfied.
The mullet and Three 6 Mafia. How do you make that work? he says. What Ive always been trying to do is figure out how to make that into a good mixture of music.
Yelawolf was born Michael Wayne Atha in Gadsden, Alabama, where his two musical loves grew organically. His mom dated a sound engineer, and Wolf remembers being onstage at age six with Dwight Yoakam, and Run DMC coming by his house to party after their local show when he was seven. I woke up in this trailer park and figured out what was ironic about who I was and where I was from wasnt that what I was experiencing was new. It was just that I recognized the extreme of it, he says.
After being homeless in Berkeley and working on a ship off the coast of Washington state, Yelawolf landed back in the South and started making mixtapes. He was purposefully rowdy, wearing head-to-toe deer hunting camouflage and gold teeth. In Atlanta, Wolf and his friend Malay (the producer who later won a Grammy for Frank Oceans Channel Orange) started a futuristic country hip-hop rock band that included both a DJ and a black fiddle player. Their self-described arena rap became popular in Atlanta, pulling huge crowds as well as the attention of Lil Wayne and L.A. Reid. But their idea was ahead of its time and fizzled.
Wolf was poor, and his now ex-girlfriend and their child were still living in Gadsden. Running out of options, he returned to Alabama with producer WLPWR. We got an 8-track recorder in the back of this shitty house in this factory neighborhood worthy of any Harmony Korine film, and we wrote Trunk Muzik front to back, he says. He hustled back to Atlanta to record it, and the tape that set his career ablaze and resulted in his working with legends like Bun B and Big Boi was completed in all of a week and a half.
I became that shit. I saw the power in it. [And] I felt fulfilled, he admits. But I always knew, Wait till they hear the shit I did with Malay.
At long last, theyre listening, and the response is as positive as he always believed it would be. Recorded entirely in Nashvilles Blackbird Studios and executively produced by Eminem, his passion projectfittingly titled Love Storyis a rootsy, country-tinged rock album brimming with strong lyricism. Finally, hes struck the right balance.
Im not reinventing the wheel. Its nothing Kid Rock hasnt done, he says. But what is new is my deep appreciation for lyricism in hip hop, [my desire] to be a great lyricist. And a deep appreciation for outlaw country, for raw classic rock. I started to learn how to blend concepts together.
Indeed he did. The albums first single, Till Its Gone, is a driving barn burner of a song elevated by Wolfs melodically sung hook. Radio friendly without sacrificing its soul, its an undeniable smash thats in line with the countrys recent obsession with the culture of rural American life. In fact, Till Its Gone premiered last September on the wildly popular FX drama Sons of Anarchy.
It might be simple, but when I decided to put down sneakers and throw on some boots it feels like Ive come full circle riding Harleys with my Dad it all makes sense, he says. A smile enters his voice. Its the biggest exhale.
