Yelawolf Debuts ‘Throw It Up’ With Eminem & Gangsta Boo
Yelawolf debuted a new song from his upcoming album, ‘Radioactive,’ last night (Nov. 10) and on it appears two veteran lyricists. The track, entitled ‘Throw It Up,’ features guest spots from Eminem and former Three Six Mafia rapper Gangsta Boo.
Produced by Will Power, the track begins with a sparse piano line before it is fleshed out and the beat drops. Over the course of the song, it builds into a frenetic, fast-paced workout, reminiscent of the mile-a-minute rhymes Catfish Billy’s Shady Records boss Eminem has come to be known for.
As for the LP, Yelawolf is confident in the material he’s prepped for the masses. “Everything is the perfect juxtaposition, everything is perfectly mismatched and makes sense somehow,” he told MTV News. “The melody of the music is soft and pretty but the drums, the bass line and the drive of the record nails hard–like southern gritty bounce.”
‘Radioactive’ is set for a Nov. 21 release date, after having been pushed back from Oct. 25. It will be the Georgia native’s first studio album.
