Yelawolf is from Alabama and he is representing the Dirty South very hard on his debut album with Eminem’s Shady Records. The album is called “Radioactive” and the 15 tracks included on the album are pure gold. With an all star cast of producers (Eminem, Diplo, WillPower) and a slew of guest cameos (Eminem, Lil Jon, Kid Rock, and Fefe Dobson), “Radioactive” is the complete package.

Yelawolf is all over the place on “Radioactive,” but he has the skills to make it work. He did an awesome job of switching up his styles to match the song and the beats on the whole album were amazingly done. Whether it was a Dirty South song (“Get Away”), a rock song (“Let’s Roll”), a club banger (“Hard White”), or an R&B song (“Good Girl”), Yelawolf showcased he can do everything well. His lyrics were flawless and memorable and his punch lines were crafty and very thoughtful. Yelawolf is not a rookie in the rap game and this album proves it.

Even though “Radioactive” had a lot of cameos, Yelawolf always shined and you are constantly reminded this was his album. Even on the songs with Mystikal (“Get Away”) and Eminem (“Throw it Up”), who are master lyricist and rap superstars, Yelawolf managed to keep up with them. Each guest star did a good job of adding a little something to the song to make each collaboration a great one. For instance, Fefe Dobson gave her pop-rock vibe on “Animal,” while Lil Jon made “Hard White” a crunk fan’s dream song. Just like the rest of the album, the guest stars were strategically placed for a particular reason to make everything cohesive and work together.

I was impressed with Yelawolf and “Radioactive” as a whole. I hope this album goes platinum because it deserves to get the praise and success. I highly recommend this album to everyone because there is something for everyone. For those reasons, I am giving this album an “A.” I thought this was a great job by Yelawolf, Shady Records, Aftermath, and Interscope. I can’t wait to see what they come out with next!
