Yelawolf Rocks Conan 12/05/11
And with the Crimson Tide being put in the BCS National Championship game earlier this week, it was only fitting Alabama’s own Yelawolf came on Conan Monday night with a song called “Let’s Roll”.
The latest prodigy out of Eminem’s Shady Records camp came on stage with full band, including Travis Barker (of Blink 182 fame) on drums and a back up singer that looked exactly like Cee-Lo Green. Rocking the crimson red tee shirt with the Alabama “A” on it, I must say his performance was quite unlike the 9-6 LSU-Alabama game from earlier this year, as it was entertaining.
Jumping around stage with a huge chain swinging, band kicking out the jams, just running through verses filled with intricate lyrics faster than I could keep up with was all combined enough to have me, a first timer, sold on his future potential. Plus, he runs with Eminem and Slaughterhouse..
And Let’s note that’s what makes Conan the more ‘hip’ of the Late Night hosts-he shows us his copy of the album on vinyl, as oppose to the CD I saw Kimmel holding up on a performance a week or two ago. The album is ‘Radioactive’, and it’ in stores now.
Jay Porks here.. I used to be a contributor on here. I\'m a little more than that now. This used to be the place I\'d go spill my rants and raves about artists and music I love and loathe. I still do that. But now I host a weekly podcast to get things off my chest, and since I have you here I\'m gonna tell you about it:
Used to talk about fun things like music and pop culture, but these days it\'s all flushing the fascist crime syndicate from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and taking back our country. A hostile foreign nation installed a corrupt racist rapist fake rich criminal to power and now he holds the nuclear codes. We have a lot of work to do to fix this nation and it starts with VOTING. Sometimes we go through the music headlines of the week along with other things I feel strongly about. Like ending Cannabis Prohibition, the sad state of affairs with the tri-state area sports teams, The struggles of an anti-social mess attempting to live in a social media world.
