I’ve decided to add a new category to What Gets You Movin, and that would be ‘Hotness’! Since I was about 14, I’ve had these mini crushes on people, a new person almost every other week. Nothing serious, just someone or sometimes a subject/entity that heightens my radar for the moment. I’m always sharing these peeps and things to my friends, so why not share them with you also!
For the 1st Hotness feature, I’m highlighting southern rapper, Yelawolf. I’ve liked Yelawolf for some time now, I was introduced to his name in early 2010, when a friend of mine kept telling me to check out his music. During that summer, his name continued to pop up, but it wasn’t until Fool’s Gold’s 1st Day Off, last Labor Day weekend, that I got a chance to see Catfish Billy in action; his performance was captivating to say the least. He pretty much left everyone with their mouth open in awe of his raw talent and energy. I happened to be beside Dave 1, of Chromeo while Yelawolf performed, and he just kept repeating how crazy this dude’s performance was. Anyone who was unfamiliar with the rapper beforehand, was running to check out his mixtape, Truck Muzik the next day, me included…and so began my intrigue with Yelawolf.
Before we get much further, we’re hitting the home stretch of 2011, I must admit that although I’ve kept an ear out for Yelawolf’s upcoming album (which finally drops Oct 25), he’s been kind of off my radar for most of the year. Well, minus the time earlier this year, when i was looking at some pictures of him, and I realized how cute he was. It wasn’t until he came into my job at Vlad TV last week for an interview, that he came back full force on my radar. Unfortunately I wasn’t in the office the day of the interview, but I was assigned to edit it, and might i say, what a nice assignment! I can’t reveal all the info that is covered in the interview, because you’ll have to go to Vlad TV over the next couple weeks to see. But for 2 full days of editing, where Yelawolf’s face filled my computer screen, not only did i get to look at quite an attractive specimen (his eyes and eyelashes are to die for!), but i got to find out that the dude is humble, level-headed, chill, and although he talks with audible ellipsis (i do the same thing) he’s quite the articulate rapper.
Check out how he goes in on V-Nasty and white people in general, for using the N-Word; as a fellow southerner I appreciate his words and perspective. If you aren’t familiar with V-Nasty, as Yelawolf clearly wasn’t (his reaction was HILARIOUS! ‘who??’ hahaha) then here’s a sneak peek of her dumb ass. But before that, feel free to check out Yelawolf’s hotness, oooooh weee!
