Eminem: "yelawolf Is A True Original..."
Eminem has praised his protégé, Yelawolf, for delivering an "incredible" album. 'Radioactive' is due for a US release on October 25 and will be Yelawolf’s first offering as an artist on Em’s Shady Records roster...
When asked to evaluate Yelawolf’s debut on Shady Records, Eminem was full of praise for his artists work: "We are very eager for the world to hear 'Radioactive' and proud to be presenting the album on Shady Records. Yelawolf is a true original and he has crafted an incredible record."
‘Radioactive’ features production from the likes of Hydrox, Diplo, SupahotBeats, The Audibles and J.U.S.T.I.C.E. The first single from the album, 'Hard White (Up In The Club)', features Lil Jon.
Yelawolf explained that the album features a lot of storytelling and draws on his life experiences of growing up in his hometown of Gadsden, Alabama: "'Radioactive' is the fallout of my life’s inspirations, a testament to my ability to survive it all and to tell the story. Sometimes I want to party, sometimes I want to fight, and sometimes I want to cry. I’m human and this album is as honest as it gets."
