After being signed to Eminem’s Shady label and being hyped as one of XXL’s 2011 Top Eleven Freshmen, Yelawolf was one of the non-main stage acts that was a must-see on my day at Warped Tour. Bringing in one of the larger crowds I saw at the Skullcandy stage that day, I’m guessing I wasn’t the only one who really wanted to check him out.
The Good: Yelawolf’s material isn’t something I really connect with, but I did leave really impressed with his talent and agreed that he’s someone to keep an eye on. The new album, Radioactive, drops in September so we’ll see how that goes.
The Bad: Probably the most crowded photo pit on a size per photographer basis experienced during the day.
The Irrelevant: I enjoyed Yelawolf rocking a Kevin Durant Oklahoma City Thunder jersey.
