We smokin' loud with the clouds up above us

Yelawolf - "Trunk Musik 0-60" (2010)
Replay Value B-
In preparation for Yelawolf's new album dropping this Friday I'll be reviewing his discography (excluding underground tapes prior to the first Trunk Musik.)
Trunk Musik 0-60 is Yelawolf's first polished mixtape on a label with all original tracks. I look back on this tape generally fondly while understanding it's problems. This album is the definition of southern crank rap done right.
Yelawolf stays pretty consistent throughout the album as he often self describes himself as the rural underdog redneck in some words. In this tape you'll get familar with high energy twitchy rap-rock beats on tracks like "Get The F*ck Up" and "Good To Go" (Ft. Bun B). Yelawolf's relentless delivery and unstoppable flow shouldn't go unmentioned either on the track "Marijuana". I enjoy the cheeky track "Daddy's Lambo"; a track about Yelawolf dating a rich girl so he can drive her Dad's luxury car. The soft sung hook on the track "Love Is Not Enough" Gets stuck In My Head Every Time.
As much fun as I have with this album, I have to be in the right mood for it. Sonicly, a lot of the tape sounds very aged after nearly a decade. The production on the tape holds up but isn't very innovative. The same can be said about the lyricism. There's not many standout bars but there's nothing cringe worthy either.
Overall this is a solid, dusty, gritty tape that's worth a listen if you're into this style of rap. The album isn't perfect functionality but Yelawolf's charisma and delivery is more than enough to keep the project afloat.
We are quick to talk about Kanye when he does something questionable but we should also talk about him when he does good! Kanye, Kim and Adidas partnered with families across the country Friday to create homemade lemonade stands hawking fresh drinks, and even fresher kicks ... and all the proceeds are being donated to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
The pop-ups are operating right now ... and if you run across one, you can cop an unreleased pair of the Yeezy Boost 700 V2 "Geode" for $300. The lemonade stands are up and running in Indianapolis, Texas, Ohio, Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa and South Dakota.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness is the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. (Photo taken by @raypolancojr) Kanye seems to be in a good place at the moment and truly becoming a family man 🙌 I am glad to see it.

@nav dropped his new album today called ‘Bad Habits’... his last album was regarded as one of the worst albums last year. Do you think he has what it takes to change that this year? My review will be coming soon but check it out for yourself first👌

@yelawolf dropped another new single off his up coming album ‘Trunk Muzik 3’ called ‘Catfish Billy 2’ and it’s strong return from Yela and a worthy sequel to the original ‘Catfish Billy’. The original ‘Catfish Billy’ was much more aggressive and boisterous, it acted as the redneck battle cry for Yela’s alternative persona which is really an emphasised side of himself. This sequels instrumental is a lot more toned down with weeping violins and an ominous piano key loop that creates an eerie aurora that fits the almost southern horror vibe he portrays. I liked the short skit of the young family at the beginning which is the same voices as on the original, a well placed dose of nostalgia to start the single off. Yela’s verse’s are well written depicting his earlier life and environment that he grew up in. I feel Yelawolf is at his best when he is writing with a narrative or scene he is trying to describe, that’s what made his old single ‘Shadows’ so captivating. This single has a short but great chorus that is delivered well with his changing intonations and confidence. Overall I really enjoyed this single and it’s great to hear Yela back in his element, this has me excited for what he has in store for us next. Make sure you go check it out 👌Rating: 7/10

Logic is back with a new single called ‘Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind’ which was released with the caption ‘I wrote this one in blood’ which is quite melodramatic regarding this singles subject matter. It has a strong laid back boom bap smooth instrumental that I enjoyed a lot and he rides it well with the classic Logic flow which is technically good but getting stale from over use. The thing that puts me off this single is that Logic sounds like a broken record that just spits out the same empty platitudes to his fans, he doesn’t say anything he that we haven’t already heard a million times before. ‘Everyone has insecurities’, ‘Stop comparing me to my contemporaries’, ‘people are mean on social media’ etc... I understand that this is his truth but he doesn’t seem to be taking time to re group and come back with a unique and fresh way of delivering this message. Ironically people would probably stop giving him so much criticism online if he stopped moaning about it and making a thing of it, this song had the same impact on me as a picture of a sky with ‘Love yourself’ written on it would. One thing I liked about the video that came along with it is the blood drenching him as it went along which seemed to represent how even if you try and brush it off scars are still there but my question is... why wouldn’t you take this interesting idea and translate it well in the actual lyrics? I am not hating on positivity in Hip Hop, it’s great to see when done well and not beaten to death. The only analogy I have is when a friend of yours keeps saying ‘Whatever your going to do I’m sure you will be amazing!’ over and over again to you... does it actually motivate you? Does it actually have a lasting impact on you? No, because it’s an empty compliment with no weight behind it... that’s how Logic’s music feels to me. I like Logic, he can rap and he seems like a nice dude but his music is stuck in a rut right now and I wish he would shake things up instead of sitting in positivity auto pilot. Go check it out for yourself, Rating: 5/10
