Joining the trinity of ONICT’s, we bring you Yelawolf at The Assembly. After being announced to play OppiKoppi in August, this becomes One more Night in Cape Town, but not just another night in Cape Town.
The Slumerican will come from the Deep South to the Southern Tip on 8 August 2016 to enlighten those who have not yet seen the light that is Yelawolf and for those who never thought they would get to see this. Hilltop Live hosts One Night in Cape Town with Yelawolf & more at The Assembly the day after he takes the stage at Oppikoppi, it doesn’t get much fresher than that.
“Yelawolf is a powerful new rap voice, one that draws from all over the map without sounding much like anyone else.” Interscope Records agreed and within three months, he had a major label deal. Later that year, the tape was re-released as Trunk Muzik 0-60, and Rolling Stone praised him as “an MC whose liquid flow breathes life into genre clichés”. In January 2011, he signed to Eminem’s Shady Records, and his fan base grew even more rabid.
His latest album Love Story features the single, Till It’s Gone. A driving barn burner of a song elevated by Wolf’s melodically sung hook. Radio friendly without sacrificing its soul, it’s an undeniable smash that’s in line with the country’s recent obsession with the culture of rural American life. In fact, Till It’s Gone premiered last September on the wildly popular FX drama Sons of Anarchy.
Being mentioned in the same sentences as Eminem, and being signed to his label, having collaborated on “Best Friend”, shows that this is meaningful hip hop. In the same breath it should also be said that Yelawolf has made an EP with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, titled Psycho White. He describes it best on Out Of Control:
“I’m too rock for hip-hop,
Too hip-hop for rock n’ roll
I’m too city for rednecks
And I’m too country for city folks
But I don’t give a f*ck what they want from me
I can only give ’em what I know”
