Yelawolf the person versus Yelawolf the narrative is probably something that could be discussed in an extensive essay (not this blog post) chronicling the pitfalls of being a white rapper, of being a white southern rapper trying to break the mold of white southern rappers, of being an artist trying to navigate a bizarre music industry. Yelawolf the person/artist, though, is a great rapper, and this is something that shouldn't be overlooked. On this concise album (which many would likely say is a return to form for Yelawolf, and we would agree), Yelawolf moves from speedy pulled-up-by-bootstraps rap to verbal acrobatics and back again.
