Who is Yelawolf?

Michael Wayne Atha, better known by his stage name Yelawolf, is an American rapper. He is currently signed to Shady Records, Ghet-O-Vision, Interscope Records, and has since founded his own independent record label, Slumerican. From 2005 to 2010, Yelawolf released an independent debut studio album titled Creek Water in 2005, an extended play, and four mixtapes. The last of the four, titled Trunk Muzik, amassed a strong following for the rapper, eventually landing him a deal with Interscope Records, which re-released the mixtape as Trunk Muzik 0-60 later that year.

In March 2011, Yelawolf signed with Eminem's record label, Shady Records, and released his album, Radioactive on November 21, 2011. The album debuted at #27 on Billboard 200. Yelawolf released his sequel to his breakthrough mixtape Trunk Muzik, titled Trunk Muzik Returns on March 14, 2013, and his sophomore album under Shady Records, titled Love Story is set to be released in 2013.
