There were certain perks Yelawolf immediately gained from signing with Shady. Along with simply having hard copies of his major label debut at all your local retailers and sharing an office with A-Listers, the Crimson Tide rider now has a viable outlet for his own Slumerican imprint. And, with Radioactive wrapped up, it appears the first of Yela’s handpicked harbingers will be a joint EP between himself and the UK’s melody man Ed Sheeran, called Slumdon Bridge.
Yesterday, label heads released the first single, called “You Don’t Know (For F*ck Sake)” and this downtrodden, audible pudding is definite proof these two artists have indeed been making some magic together across the pond. Both seem able to variate between singing and spitting, allowing them to easily compliment each other on the drop of an empty kick drum, giving their combined style a very cohesive sound.
Seeing as there will be quite a few new fans of Wolf by the time said Bridge drops, let’s hope the rest of this project is just as solid, so that after it fares well, our other favorite Slumericans can get similar shots under the spotlight.
