The video for Yelawolf’s thumping first single, “Let’s Roll,” encompasses everything listeners need to know about the ‘Bama MC. The juxtaposed shots of Hip-Hop’s birthplace, the South Bronx, with Yela’s native Southern state accentuates the urban sound that he has made his own. Vehicles of all kinds (mud-caked four-wheelers and drop-top convertibles) maneuver listeners through the entire clip, highlighting the people Catfish Billy considers fans, friends and inspirations. The man behind the mighty chorus, Kid Rock, tags along, as does legendary DJ Kool Herc, providing proper visuals from one of Radioactive’s most potent cuts.
