Yelawolf x Interscope

blame it on Meka March 29, 2010

Looks like Jimmy just found his next pet project…

A big birdie tells me that Yelawolf has officially signed to Interscope Records. Again, buzz+climate created a bidding war, but it seems Jimmy Iovine was highly motivated. Congrats to the Alabaman! Now usually I just pretend to be interested in people, but I’m honestly intrigued by this fellow (and I enjoy his Zannel). Fans who were introduced to Yelawolf’s twang on Juelz Santana’s “Mixing up the Medicine” may need to ease into his unfiltered solo work, but I like his southern-comfort-in-his-own-skin. It’s definitely attracted some vets (Bun B, Travis Barker, the Neptunes, etc), not to mention, everyone who saw Yelawolf at SxSW left raving as well. So that’s no small feat. – miss info

Congrats to Yela, and let the Em comparisons unfortunately commence… again.
