XXL Freshman Freestyle: Yelawolf

[vodpod id=Video.5687812&w=540&h=350&fv=%40videoPlayer%3D811202330001%26amp%3BplayerID%3D735056477001%26amp%3BplayerKey%3DAQ%7E%7E%2CAAAAj36EHhk%7E%2C2pR1tWM5uViEGY2aJlYd-RLIcAd9f-as%26amp%3Bdomain%3Dembed%26amp%3BdynamicStreaming%3Dtrue]

Today is Catfish Billy’s turn to deliver his XXL Freshman freestyle. Underneath, Yela comments on his front page coverage.

“I feel like I flunked for, like, five years to be here to become a Freshman. It’s dope. I feel like I’m a senior in a freshman class, but I’m honored to be a part of this crew. I just continue to do what I’ve been doing…just making music that makes sense for me and for my crew and doesn’t stop. What got me here is just being me. [The night before the cover shoot], I was in Colorado to do the X Games, so for the past two days, I’ve been going nonstop. Had my show in Aspen last night. We rocked that and finished at 1 a.m., and we drove to Denver and made a connection flight. I’m just hustling. I’m here with no sleep, and that’s the life that I chose. Just happy to be a part of this, man.”

Yesterday: Kendrick Lamar

    The XXL Freshman List is a joke nowadays. Respect to Diggy, Yelawolf, Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller (Love Him – No Homo), Big K.R.I.T (Love Him – No Homo), and thats about it. DO SOME REAL WORK XXL, FIND SOME ARTIST THAT ARE GONNA MAKE SOME MOVEMENT IN 2011, IT MORE THEN HALF OF THESE GUYS DROP A ALBUM IN 2011 I WILL BE EXTREMELY SURPRISED. HIP HOP IS TURNING INTO A HYPE BEAST GAME, LETS JUST LET THE MUSIC SPEAK FOR ITSELF. XXL WE DON’T NEED YOUR WEAK PREDICTIONS, WE DON’T NEED YOU PERSUASION, WE JUST WANT YOU TO COVER THIS NITCH IN THE MUSIC GAME WITH UN-BIAS, I KNOW HARDER SAID THEN DONE.

    “Yo, how about I put some bass on this bitch? Put some loud-ass rumbling over his rhymes so you really have to strain and pay attention to hear what he’s saying. That’ll be fly. Swag.”

    – The XXL video intern that made these videos

    Seriously, kill that fucking rumbling XXL.

  • Jav

    Ever since the class that had wale cudi roth b.o.b. currensy gunz and all those guys its been a joke..if they did a battle of the classes 09 would win with no contest. Diggy is a joke Yelawolf is rambler rapper lamar is over rated mac miller has simpleton lines they’re all trash. Not on single lyricist..if ur gonna have 40 yr old yelawolf at least put crooked i on there since he hasnt ever had a solo album!!!!!

  • RapMusic25

  • POWER

  • POWER

    no hate either, pop the trunk was a decent song. but he aint saying shit in his freestyle rhymes.

  • pistol poppin pete

    YELA SKRATE SKILLED IT

  • Jav

    “you are so fucking stupid for going against a shady business decision”

    haha wow can u say stan?

    I respect em but he hasn’t ever brought anyone up besides D12..and they sold a combined 3 million albums in the 2 albums the had in the non digital era..those numbers would translate to 2 gold albums now.

    All i know is yelawolf isn’t good..what do u get out of listening to a yelawolf track? tell me please…

  • Black Shady

    POW!!! We stay winning. shout out to Yela for being part of the best label in the game

    SHADY 2011

  • B-Wis

    @Jav

    I think you are forgetting about 50 Cent…

  • IhateBloggers

    first off… crooked i was already a freshmen at one point in the first ever xxl freshmen they did that had lupe papoose joell boosie plies and a bunch of others….

    and as far as shady never bringing anyone up…. how bout 50, and obie trice? and since he put 50 on u have to add evryone who ever did some shit in g-unit… like game, lloyd banks, young buck, shit even yayo moved a couple units…

  • COLD BLOOD

    YELAWOLF IS AVERAGE AT BEST, BUT STILL BETTER THAN LIL WAYNE, DRAKE, GUCCI AND ALL THE OTHER FAKE RAPPERS!

    YOU CAN HATE ME NOW!

  • MinajBangher!

    @xplicit highness!!COSIGN!!And for whoever says this is garbage….Eata FAT DICK and clean the potatoes out of your ears!

  • TA

    i guees he is just spittin too fast for you slow dudes to understand….

  • Derty Kevin

    @TA No we do understand, that’s why it’s unimpressive. If you actually listened to what he’s spitting, the rhymes are very simple.

    This guy aint gonna sell in the streets or the mainstream.

  • killafornia kush

    Cold blood keeps telling the truth!! How the fuc is yela not making sense wen ur fav rapper sound like he has a dick in his mouth!? Or singing about hoes in every song?

  • killafornia kush

    @jav ur a fucking idiot! Ever since he got shot nobody wanted to sign him. He would be begging labels for a contract rite now. If it wasnt for em, there would be no pimp, in da club, patiently waiting, etc

  • 5k on my wrist

    i love this nigga flow

  • TA

    @dertykevin lol then how is it unimpressive please explain….this obv isn’t his best but dude can spit. please try to tell me he cant. hes wayyyy different than everyone else in the game. nobody flows like this dude.
    bet you from up north too. dudes talkin about south shit you aint on homie

  • roger

    check it ….

  • Magic

    Kendrick Lamar is NOT Overrated…dudes a fvcking Beast

  • Chris

    @pienman u will soon. Tech N9ne is recording “Worldwide Choppers” which has Yelawolf, Tech N9ne, Twista, Busta Rhymes and whoever else Tech decides to throw on it. “choppers” is slang for a fast rapper so u already know what to expect.

  • Belize

    Dope.

  • D!A!E

    uh….what?

  • winning

    shady #winning

  • TheOnlyKidThatActuallyKnowsMusic

    anyone who says Yelawolf isnt a lyricist should get skinned and have their remains dropped in a pool of corrosive acid

  • ToiletSpatula

    anyone who doubts yeller either needs to go download creekwater, his first album from way back, or as a hater…get off his dick “like a jean zipper” (2.0 boys verse).

  • ies

    haha! lots of haters….if you don’t like him, why leave a comment?? H.A.M!!!

  • HIP HOP MUSIC

    THIS GONNA SOUND WACK BUT YELA WOLF REALLY IS ONE OF THOSE RAPPERS WHO SOUND WAAAAY BETTER OVER A BEAT CAUSE HE’S A BEAT RIDER MORE THEN AN MC…LOVE HE’S SHIT THO

  • Pingback: Rap Radar :: XXL Freshman Freestyle: Diggy Simmons

  • Javito_1

    @hiphopmusic A beat rider is an mc. how you flow to a beat is the essence of hip hop, if niggas was just goin accapella then it be called spoken word poetry. i’m just saying…

  • Truth

    Hip Hop blah blah its about image and what sells! Yella got the look! And the talent and work ethic to back it up…..Lil B is the joke!

    I now want to hear his collab with Tech n9ne

  • EstTNMuzikFan

    If Yelawolf is so “bad” why was he the top independent selling artist the week his album dropped?Why did he get nothing but great reviews and write-up’s from almost ALL major websites about hip-hop? Why has he had guest spots on some of the BIGGEST names in hip-hop/rap? (Rza,Big-Boi,Paul Wall,Tech N9ne,Shady the list goes on and on) if he sucks, why did he make XXL TWICE in a row, never been done before, not even by Slim Shady.
    If he sucks, why did he drop a mixtape LAST year and his first full ALBUM 8 months later to HUGE CRITICAL SUCCESS?
    Also, HIS FIRST ALBUM WASN’T EVEN OUT AND HE HAD A SPOT ON THE BET HIP-HOP AWARDS CYPHER..

    HATERS WHO DON’T KNOW HIP-HOP CAN SUCK DICK.
    He doesn’t rap about the same old stale shit. like Wayne or 50 or Waka Fuckass
    Exp: Cars,ho, and how big his chain is, or how bad his bitch is, or what block hes shooting up or how much purple drank they chug down like retards.

    So next time you few idiots want to judge an artist, look at the other artist out there first.
