Coming off the back of his momentous third album Love Story, Alabama rapper Yelawolf has blessed Australian fans with the announcement of a national tour! Love Story is by far Yelawolf’s most accomplished record, “something special for music lovers,” that seamlessly blends the best of the sounds of the Deep South with hip-hop and pop. The album is something of a modern classic and a must for hip-hop heads, even if it might stray a little far from the well-beaten track. Yelawolf’s serious skills as a singer make any live show essential viewing. Nothing like the garbled muttering of most live rap. He’s a musician first and foremost.
Born as Michael Wayne Atha, there aren’t many rappers out there who draw comparisons to both Outkast and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Needless to say, this is not a show to be missed.
The chance to see one of the best indie rappers alive is great news for Australians, oft neglected by the underground rap circuit.
Tickets go on sale Friday August 7. Yelawolf will be blowing the roof off of:
