Yelawolf & Kid Rock, Framed
It's hip-hop time in Framed once again, and this week's video, "Let's Roll," is the real deal! It features Yelawolf, the skateboarder/rapper from Alabama, and Kid Rock, the musical icon from Detroit, performing a paean to the overall goodness of the values of the Deep South.
We all know about Kid Rock -- he's the McDonald's Dollar Menu of pop music -- but who's this Yelawolf? Well, his real name is Michael Wayne Atha, and he made his initial splash on a UPN reality series. His biggest hit to date was his LP, Radioactive, the 2011 disc that featured this week's video.
The Yelawolf/Kid Rock match is one made in heaven, though. Projecting American greatness, the two sing of big trucks, big bucks, peeing in a lake, and, of course, 30 packs. Pretty much everything that makes us #1.
So sit back and enjoy the show, and promise to get back here next week for an absolutely astonishing, never-before-seen blog!
