SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Rolling Stone calls him "one of the fastest rising emcees on the music scene," and after having been named best live hip-hop act by Creative Loafing Atlanta, Yelawolf will launch The "Hard White" Tour, with DJ Craze and Rittz, on September 28th in Starkville, MS. The tour criss-crosses the U.S. before wrapping up in Las Vegas on October 28th. Please see below for all upcoming dates.
The tour's name is taken from "Hard White (Up In The Club)," the first single from the Alabama-born rapper's upcoming full-length studio album, Radioactive, which is due from Ghet-O-Vision/Shady Records/DGC/Interscope on October 25th, 2011. The single, which features Lil Jon, is currently available via all digital retailers.
Radioactive is Yelawolf's first album after the partnering of Ghet-O-Vision Entertainment and the Eminem-led Shady Records. The album, which finds Yelawolf working with such producers as SupaHotBeats, Justice League, The Audibles, and Diplo, follows Yelawolf's critically acclaimed Trunk Muzik 0-60 (Ghet-O-Vision/DGC/Interscope) — a 2010 compilation of tracks from his Trunk Muzik mixtape along with previously unavailable recordings.
Here's what the critics are saying about Yelawolf:
"No one sounds like him, and no one can copy his raunchy, gritty style of rhyming. Known for his far-from-pure antics and his energetic stage show, Yelawolf is a poster child for 'not giving a f*ck.'" — AllHipHop
"He looks just as comfortable performing alongside guitar-playing rockers as he does with the most legendary of MCs. It's a juxtaposition he aims to put on full display on his upcoming Ghet-O-Vision/Shady debut Radioactive." — Respect
