love your city

the south got somethin’ to say

Filed under: the bourgeoisie & the rebel, video ho

i love songs about horses, railroads, land, judgment day, family, hard times, whiskey, courtship, marriage, adultery, separation, murder, war, prison, rambling, damnation, home, salvation, death, pride, humor, piety, rebellion, patriotism, larceny, determination, tragedy, rowdiness, heartbreak, and love. and mother. and god.j. cash

aside from the new roots album, pretty much all the music i’ve been listening to lately has come from south of the mason-dixon line. i think that says more about the current state of rap music than about my tastes, but take what you will from it.

both bun b & big boi’s new albums are a welcome addition to my collection and i would go so far as to say that big boi’s sir luscious leftfoot: the son of chico dusty is my choice (so far) for album of the year. but i mention this more as an opening to talk about my boy yelawolf. both big boi and bun b, as well as plenty of other respectable rap cats (raekwon!) have given dude a strong co-sign, and deservedly so. you might recognize him as the cat that sang the chorus on juelz santanta’s mixin’ up the medicine and if you’ve had a conversation with me about rap music in the past year, you’ll know that i’ve been stanning pretty heavy on this white boy from the ‘bama for a minute. i can’t wait to see what he brings to the game.  he’s currently touring rock the bells as well as with wiz khalifa & big K.R.I.T., another southern rapper that brings them heatrocks. you can download/stream K.R.I.T.’s self-produced album here, it’s incredible. he just signed to def jam, so expect to hear plenty more from him soon.

and, oh, how could i ever almost leave this out!! datpiff has a new iphone app where you can listen to any mixtape on the site!!! amaaaaaazing. anyways, here are a bunch of yelawolf videos. if he didn’t already have 3 children, i’d consider giving him his first…
