New Music: Yelawolf f/ Lil Jon – ‘Hard White (Up in the Club)’


Yelawolf tears the club up with “Hard White (Up in the Club),” the first single from his Ghet-O-Vision/Shady Records/DGC/Interscope debut Radioactive, due this fall. The Alabama rapper, who was introduced to Eminem through producer Jim Jonsin, spits aggressive rhymes while Lil Jon ad-libs over the clanging Hydrox-produced beat.

Yela takes aim at those who compare him to other white rappers. “That’s why they’re so quick to compare me, but f**k the critics with a spiked d**k when it can fit barely/ They probably think I’m a Limp Bizkit that spits jelly,” raps the self-proclaimed hick.

Radioactive will feature production from Diplo, The Audibles, SupahotBeats, and J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, among others.
