Yelawolf Explains How He Prepared To Drop His First Solo Album "Ghetto Cowboy"
(AllHipHop News) Rapper Yelawolf is preparing his first solo album as an independent artist.
Yelawolf's new album Ghetto Cowboy is his 6th studio album and the rapper's first solo album to be released on his Nashville-based imprint, Slumerican
The album will make its debut via YouTube on Halloween night
the following day, Ghetto Cowboy will end in stores. .
“This Ghetto Cowboy album has been the most gratifying to me as an artist being that it’s my first indie release on my own label. I have no one to answer to and that can be a scary responsibility. After Love Story, Trial By Fire and then Trunk Muzik 3, I feel like I got a well-rounded project that speaks to all the fans; hip hop, rock’n’roll, and southern fans alike. I ain’t reinventing the wheel here, just doing what I love to do, doing what I think is dope and original.
"I never want to stop challenging the genre or the listener or become complacent or settled cause that’s boring as f_<# to me and the fans. G.C. is unapologetic, brutally honest and at times completely vulnerable. I leave it all out there. Take it or leave it," Yelawolf" said.
Yelawolf is also hitting the road the "Ghetto Cowboy Tour" this month.
The 28-date outing will kick off on October 9th in Colorado, and wrap up in Louisville, Kentucky on November 24th.
