Don't Sleep: Necessary Notables
Mixtape: The Country Cousins: Trunk Muzik Wuz Here
Headliner: Yelawolf and Big K.R.I.T.
Key Cameos: TBD
Essential Info: Yelawolf is a big proponent of Southern hospitality. The Alabama native was low-key on the BET Hip-Hop Awards black carpet last weekend when we caught up with him to talk about his Interscope debut. But when the talk turned to other new jacks, Yela lit up and delivered praise like he was serving sweet tea to a neighbor.
The Trunk Muzik rapper was effusive over Big K.R.I.T.
"Big K.R.I.T. is another one to look out for," he told Mixtape Daily.
"Honestly, he's one of my favorite MCs coming up."
The two are hard at work on a joint project, he revealed.
"We got a mixtape coming out, called The Country Cousins: Trunk Muzik Wuz Here," he said. "We got four records in already. Be expecting that in the next four to five months. I'm on tour till November, and he's on tour too. So, once we get off tour, we're gonna wrap that up and put it out there."
As for his own project, Trunk Muzik: 0-60, Yela said he's appreciative for the support he's received as he crafts his first album.
"I know I'm not an easy pill to swallow," he said. "My story is different. My style is different. The fact that people are accepting of it, I'm just happy. They're finally starting to get it. I'm making traction, so I'm just gonna get it while the getting is good."
