Earlier this year, I came down pretty hard on a kid named Young Sinatra! Well, he did a song where he sounded JUST like Drake and it was a big thumbs down. But, after listening to a bit more of of his music, he’s pretty darn talented. Well, rappers of a lighter shade are all the rage now. Eminem seems like he’s got favor with White America. Yelawolf seems to be working out OK in the underworld. But, I think Em and crew are looking for another face to represent Shady 2.0 and that’s Logic. Its heavily rumored from my sources that Eminem is looking to sign the dude. And for good reason…he’s lighter content than Yela and Em and that’s what’s poppin’ with the teens and the tweens. Right now, I’m hearing they have Logic in “training” for the bigger picture.
On the flip side, I’ve heard some grumblings that Yelawolf is not all that happy with his situation at Shady. I hearing that he’s not very happy that he’s sort of on the sidelines. Publicly this has been mostly directed to Interscope, but there’s also a bit of perturbness to Eminem. Not sure what is being expected of him, but I think people, Yela included, thought Eminem meant a slam dunk into the commercial world. Didn’t happen. Yela has a new project coming out. We’ll support it, because he’s dope. Hopefully, everybody else will too.
