New Music: Yelawolf ft. Eminem & Gangsta Boo “Throw It Up”

On this brand new track from the fast-spitting Alabama MC he enlists his boss, Eminem, and Gangsta Boo, the female rapper who was affiliated with Three 6 Mafia and hasn’t been heard from in awhile. Certainly not a trio you would expect on a hip-hop song but somehow they all manage to gel together with lyrics that hit as hard as a ton of bricks. Over a heavily piano-driven southern club banger all three manage to talk as much mess as they can to anyone in their way. Yelawolf and Eminem both use their sped up flows with Yelawolf even stuttering his words to the piano keys. Remember that Radioactive, Yelawolf’s debut album on Shady Records drops next week, Nov. 21, 2011.

Shady 2.0 BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher

 

The 2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards premiered last night and throughout the program there were a handful of cyphers from many different MC’s in the game. The clear highlight was the new and improved Shady Records crew with Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf, and of course the boss himself, Eminem. With the legendary DJ Premier on the 1’s and 2’s every single one of them brought their A game and killed it. If anyone had any doubts that Marshall had lost his edge those were erased last night. Just watch and marvel at what the pure essence of hip-hop looks like.
