Catfish Billy drops off “working class music” for an upcoming mixtape hosted DJ Jelly and DJ Hotsauce. Wit and wordplay over a plink-plink piano-heavy backdrop = a freewheeling good listen.
YelaWolf – “I Need A Dollar” | Download
Spied: The 9 Elements
ughhhhhhhhhhhh i knew someone was gonna use the theme for How To Make It In America sooner or later…..I dont like this dude,fake ass wannna be eminem. especially here.
yah – it’s getting old fam.
compare this to Em’s flow on “I just dont give a fuck” and tell me not and ill call you a moron.
I love this song (the original). Aloe Blacc did his thing. Yela’s freestyle isn’t at all bad though. I’d rather hear this than another freestyle over ‘Exhibit C’ or ‘Over’. I respect dudes that go outside of the norm searching for beats to spit on.
@yah: I don’t really see the Em comparisons.
love the original song and also this version. yelas sick!
i dont understand how you cant, hes mimmicking ems flow,and his accent circa slim shady LP….
Damn son. Lets leave Aloe Blacc’s song alone. That dude make such great soul music and he’s a decent rapper at that.
ummm NO… not feeling it.
I apologize for not liking this dude? whatchu want me to say man? dude sounds like a wanna be eminem on this one,more so than other joints ive heard from him….just aint feeling dude overall,dont see the illness at all…I can only be honest,not a follower,not a co-signer…i like B.O.B.’s not lost and bet i bust over antyhing this dude does.
guess im in a more hateful mood this week than others,i aint doing it on purpose….just calling it like i see it. Ill keep it short from now on,thumbs up,thumbs down,better?
^I didn’t wanna be “that guy” but it does seem like Yah has a negative opinion about almost everything on the site worth mentioning. Now far be it from me to use the term “hater” because I don’t like a whole lotta shit. My question is, If you don’t like this site, why keep coming back?
dude goes in- real talk. i saw homey at put the a in austin an i been a believer since. and my 2 cents: em is not even the nicest WHITE rapper he ‘s just a dope emcee.
I like Yelawolf, but I think the song should be left alone. Aloe Blacc pretty much did his thing.
something is stopping me from liking this song a ton. its ok prolly cause i love the beat. for some strange reason i cant get into yelawolf. eh he’ll probably make the itunes library on one of the days i want new music
This is Aspektz version off ACADEMIC PROBATION:COMMENCEMENT out in May
Catfish is killer, very excited for this album to come out.
to be fair to yah, he often lists both his positive and negative impressions of tracks.
to be fair to yelawolf, stop comparing every white rapper to em. he and yelawolf have different subject matter, different delivery, different production style and, yes, different voices.
he cuts his hair. to get this dollar ?
you people are so funny. More people COMPARE other artists to Eminem than the actual amount of artist who try to rap like eminem. Expand your mind people, the world does not and will never revolve are Eminem.
Eminem is good, he has a talent, but so do millions of other people. GET OVER IT and explore other talents. Out of the millions of people that are talented enough to make music OF COURSE PEOPLE WILL START TO SOUND ALIKE!
I have personally seen Yela live and I will tell you that it was unforgettable and very entertaining. I have all of his released material to date and it has so much variety. He sings too.
bottom line is, wash your brain of the commercial plague and don’t criticize someone who is more talented and successful than you.
and this original is by Aloe Blacc, who is also another multi-talented artist in the hip hop and soul genres. Keep it underground!
