Shady records emcee Yelawolf stopped by Greensboro, NC’s 102 Jamz for an interview with Waleed Coyote. Yela get’s in-depth speaking on why we haven’t seen any collaboration with Eminem, the first time getting booed off stage in New York, and how his new single “Hard White” came about, White rappers and more.
Speaking on his first time getting booed on-stage, Yela says:
“First legit boo? I’ve gotten booed by a few haters and shit. My first legit boo was when I went to New York opening up for Raekwon in New York City.I brought a banjo player with me, I brought a drummer, a fiddle player and as soon as I stepped out on stage, I said, ‘What’s up Alabama’ or something like, ‘This is my first time in Alabama, everybody make some noise!’ and I was in New York City. But they just struck it off. I got through it, though. By the end, they were backing it. Couple Wiz shows already, that was,You know.”
As the Shady emcee continued he spoke on White rappers:
“There’s always been white rappers, it’s nothing new under the sun. There’s only been one with worldwide success and longevity. You know who that is – Marshall. But there’s always been white rappers. It’s cool, but a lot of times, it’s nerve-wracking because of the lack of respect of the culture that a lot of white rappers have. But there are plenty of real cats out there. With the Internet now, you could be knowledgeable about everything.”
