well you motherfuckers are on some crazy advanced haterade.

i've met the dude, hung out with him for awhile and he's real down to earth. used to be a wannabe pro skater, decided that wasn't for him after so many injuries and what not. decided to go after music full time, enter yelawolf.

dude can rap better than 90 percent of the artists this board fancies and hasn't restricted himself to the little niche fan bases that many of those artists do. good for him.

dude has a lot of respect in the south for the most part, lotta black fans, and i WILL go to the point of saying that most of the people that hate on him are whiteboys that make music for whiteboys and are generally jealous of the image he has and the respect he has so early on in his career.

i agree w/ adam here. if you're gonna do gangsta shit, at least have some clever schemes & wordplay etc. his style comes off as corny too much but i respect his hustle.

Simplicity plays little to no part in the equation. If you guys' corn meters are not popping off the charts peering at this character, well ,I feel like I don't know you anymore.

Peering?

You know, you've described your visual impressions of him a great deal more than the music.

Actually a lot of people in this thread have.


Pretty much everybody detracting from him in this thread is either making fun of what he looks like or telling him to "be more clever" and "up his lyrical game". I think a lot of preconceived notions are affecting both these perceptions.

Just last week I saw this dude go on immediately after fucking Fashawn and hold his own. No corny emcee could do that. Peeryod.

This dude is dope. I'm impressed for sure. However I wish I stopped watching the videos just before I clicked on the "Mixing up the Medicine" one.

This guy is going to do some serious damage.

i'm sayin.

a lot of artists/people, myself included, reacted to this dude negatively/critically outright because the realization of how many good things he has going for him is an annoying pill to swallow. truth of the matter is: everyone is about to be on this guys nuts.
