It’s not too often that Alabama born and bred rapper Yelawolf is in Australia, so he’s making the most of it – along with supporting, Yela has now announced two headlining shows in Melbourne and Sydney.
Through a run of albums, mixtapes and EPs, Yelawolf has risen to the status of cult icon within the underground scene and, despite only being here once before, has garnered an intimidatingly large following Down Under. It was his Trunk Muzik release that grabbed the attention of the international hip hop community and backed by a run of well-established musicians including Travis Barker it was hard to ignore him.
The protege of Eminem recently released the Trunk Muzik Returns EP featuring a star-studded guestlist including A$AP Rocky, Raekwon and Killer Mike, with a sophomore album Love Story slated for release later this year that promises to be even bigger.
These shows are certain to sell out, so no lolly gagging – book yo tix straightaway! Tickets go on sale to the general public from 9am local time Monday, 17th June.
