When Yelawolf isn’t scaring MGK out of beefs, he is preparing for his Shady Records debut album, Radioactive. While we are all familiar with Yela’s debut single Hard White, it doesn’t hurt to add labelmates Slaughterhouse and the King of the South T.I. for a remixed version. For those who haven’t heard Tha Hydrox-produced instrumental, imagine the beginning of a dark action movie as a low toned, chopped-up Bangladesh-styled sample sets the mood with its dramatic sound and heavy snare. The King opens up the record and keeps a smooth relaxed flow followed by new work from Yela. A lot less amped than he was in the original, Yeller takes listeners for a journey into his demented mind. Slaughterhouse (Crooked, Royce, Ortiz and Budden, in that order) then continues with stellar bars that prove why Shady 2.0 is one of the scariest collection of emcees… ever. While the verses showcase lyrics skills and tightly-wound flows, the hook is still club ready and will have anyone ready to fight! The real hard white arrives in the form of Radioactive on November 21. Get prepared.
