’10 Mixtapes: #4 Yelawolf Trunk Muzik

Truth be told when this mixtape dropped last New Year’s day, it was the last thing on my mind. It took me two months and a plane ride to Austin to finally connect to the fresh new sound of an Alabama MC. First things first: Yelawolf is white. If you don’t know, now you do. Who gives a middle finger? He can flat-out rap his ass off as the titilating title track attests. The riotous rookie also proved he could his own with well respected veterans like Bun B (“Good To Go”) and Raekwon (“I Wish”). He even took a Juelz Santana and made it his own (“Mixin’ Up The Medicine”). I wish a muthafucka would tell me this tape ain’t hot. Halleratmee!

  • pissed

    never listened to it & probably still won’t. Dude just has no appeal to me at all.

  • dmfslimm

    shit yeah. high replay value. dope guests. tight beats. only those who came up on ghetto style djs/dj magic mike can feel this. i can listen to yela over the 09′-10′ eminem and say on top of a mountain top yelawolf is the truth and cant no white boy fuck with him.

  • dmfslimm

    oh yeah, krit should be in the top 5. i will have to check that jcole.

  • CJ

    Damn this is a sick joke. The order should be something like
    1. Friday Night Lights,
    2. More About Nothing,
    3. Kush & OJ
    4. Trap Or Die 2
    5. Royal Flush/K.I.D.S.

  • Ac@pella!

    Another thing. I know if this is #4 on the list, then Big Sean’s Finally Famous Vol. 3 ain’t up here….Break out the Detroit hate.

  • GTFO

    Say what you want, but the K.I.D.S. mixtape was hot. I dont think it made this list, cuz it can’t be in the top 3.

  • iHate

    RR conspiracy. Let’s kill RR

  • instigator

    i sitll bump the K.I.D.S mixtape and so far this yelawolf one is hot. how you gonna hate cause of skin color didnt we already go through that shit???

  • Chris

    Hey RR, don’t forget to put Tech’s “Bad Season” on this list! It’s number 1 to me, next to Fabolous’s “The Funeral Service: There’s No Competition 2″

  • Ashamed

    How could you do this to big krit?

  • Kareem

    Albert Anastasia and Kush & OJ. I have no clue what the other is. Fab?

  • Black McJagger

    Friday Night Lights was solid but it wasn’t even better than his first tape so why would it be number 1 over joints like Krit Wuz Here? I have heard Trunk Music and it is honest to god a better project. Don’t catch feelings but it honestly is. I promise you the same niggas who are so quick to judge haven’t even heard the project lol

  • No Budden?

    If Buddens Mood Muzik 4 does not make the mixtape list I Swear this site can R.I.P. to me. The only way that’s even possible is if these clowns simply did not listen to it. WTF!

  • http://thehiltonburnellfiles.wordpress.com moneymakingjus

    Dope

  • fuk waka

    BDW kanyesss GOOD fridays tunes should be counted as a mixtape except the ones which made the album!! we cant ignore that!

  • Everyday Hussle

    Im still in shock at Krit being #9, you really put this klansman ahead of Krit tho???

  • http://reverbnation.com/ajb4 AJB4

    this mixtape deserves to be above J.Cole’s with “Pop The Trunk” alone that’s gotta be one of the best hardcore/gangsta rap songs of the latter half of this decade

  • http://www.facebook.com/serisony SeRiSoNy

    I can’t believe how much hate is going on in these comments. You guys obviously haven’t really listened, and can’t call yourselves Hip-Hop fans, because Yelawolf’s impact on the game with this mixtape turned album, is undeniable. It has every right to be on the list with J. Cole’s tape, and Big Krit’s.

    DEAR HIP-HOP LISTENER, STOP BEING SO BIAS AND/OR RACIST, AND JUST LISTEN TO THE MUSIC, AND LET THAT SPEAK FOR ITSELF. EITHER IT SPEAKS TO YOU OR IT DOESN’T, THAT IS ALL. YOU CAN’T CALL YOURSELVES REAL FANS OF THIS CULTURE, IF YOU JUST STAY IN ONE CORNER OR ONE SIDE OF IT.

  • http://reverbnation.com/ajb4 AJB4

    and another thing you can’t say something sucks if you’ve never experienced it

  • Jeffro

    Please listen to this mixtape before you compare it to anyone elses….he raps differently, the beats knock…and yes he is white….you’re all a bunch of dick riders.

    easy.

  • phil

    Rawest Tape of the year No Doubt!

  • assasin9

    word – yelawolf is an ill mc — saw him in concert, dude can spit — this deserved to be @#4, i would play this tape over a lot of stuff that came out this yr

  • Spivey

    lol all you bitch ass niggas crying over a list saying u aint coming back, yet another post and the same pussies cryin wolf lmao

  • Joshua

    I GOT TO STAND UP FOR CATFISH BILLY. THIS MIXPTAPE CAUGHT ME OFF GUARD WHEN I DOWNLOADED BACK IN APRIL. WHITEBOY WAS ABLE TO HOLD IS OWN ON A TRACK WITH RAEKWON LEAVE HIM ALONE THE BOY CAN RHYME

  • http://rapradar.com ben

    is this good? i dont listen to mixtapes much. i heard a interview with him, sounds like a cool dude, but i cant name one song.

  • PrincePolo

    b.o.b no genre mixtape is the best this year . fuck Rapradadar for all this bullshit . anyone know some hiphop websites ?

  • On2ndListen

    Was originally gonna deuce on this mixtape, but thanks for puttin this in my face [||]. On 2nd listen, this mixtape is very solid. Still not better than FNL or Big KRIT’s and probably not Top 10 worthy other than it helped him land an Interscope deal…no small feat.

  • F*CK YOU COUCH

    Rap Radar is a a dope site BUT Trunk Muzik over Friday Night Lights is FUCKING CRAZY. YN just lost alot of credit as a Hip-Hop Head for this bullshit. GET JIMMY IOVINE’s D*CK OUT OF YOUR MOUTH YELLOW NINJA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    R.I.P
    YO COUCH

    HE STOLE MY POSE!!!!!!!! lol

  • me too

    this nigga better then wiz kahlifa wack ass

  • kProphet

    @SeRiSoNy, co-sign. You stole the words out of my mouth. People these days claim to be a fan of a certain type of music, then hate the first second they get. Yelawolf is one of the best rappers to come out of ’10. Trunk Muzik was fucking incredible. That shit got overplayyyed for me.

    I love hip hop. Matter of fact, i love music. And I’m not gonna bullshit about how I like all artists/bands. But I do respect them. All you people hating, shut the fuck up and show some goddamn respect.

    ma nigga yela killing it mang…happy for this nigga right now but j cole should have gotten a better spot

  • Truth

    There’s so much Cole dick riding on this site is fucking retarded. I’m going to laugh my ass off when Cole comes out and doesn’t do all that well with his numbers and you fucking idiots who dick rode him all this time don’t even show up to cop a $10 dollar album.

  • dmfslimm

    pop the trunk shits on anything on the radio or satilite.

  • jdot

    This bullshit over FNL? Really though? Fuck your bullshit list. Cole >>>>>>>>>>everything else

  • wesowavy

    This is the worst list in the history of the fucking world.
