Though he’s been in the public eye since 2008, Michael Atha aka Yelawolf has gained more attention this year, appearing on Paul Wall and Bizarre records, as well as Big Boi’s stellar Sir Lucious Left Foot. The Alabama rapper has just dropped a new single off his first mixtape while backed with a major label (Interscope), Trunk Muzik 0-60. “Billy Crystal” is emphasized by Yelawolf’s southern swagger accompanying a boisterous electro synth beat and evasive piano chords, growing fiercer as backup vocalists sing “Billy’s on the corner selling crystal meth.” Yelawolf’s first proper LP Radioactive comes out March 2011.
