Yelawolf to Release Debut Full-Length Studio Album, Radioactive, On October 25th, 2011, On Ghet-O-Vision/Shady Records/DGC/Interscope
FIRST SINGLE, "HARD WHITE (UP IN THE CLUB)," FEATURING LIL JON, OUT NOW
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 18, 2011 -- Fast-rising rapper Yelawolf has announced that he will release his upcoming full-length studio album, Radioactive, on October 25th, 2011, via Ghet-O-Vision/Shady Records/DGC/Interscope.
"Radioactive is the fallout of my life's inspirations, a testament to my ability to survive it all and to tell the story," said Yelawolf. "Sometimes I want to party, sometimes I want to fight and sometimes I want to cry. I'm human and this album is as honest as it gets."
The first single from Radioactive, "Hard White (Up In The Club)," featuring Lil Jon and produced by Hydrox, is currently available via all digital retailers.
Radioactive is the Alabama-born rapper's first album after the partnering of Ghet-O-Vision Entertainment and the Eminem-led Shady Records. The album, which finds Yelawolf working with such producers as SupaHotBeats, Justice League, The Audibles, and Diplo, follows Yelawolf's critically acclaimed Trunk Muzik 0-60 (Ghet-O-Vision/DGC/Interscope) -- a 2010 compilation of tracks from his Trunk Muzik mixtape along with previously unavailable recordings.
"We are very eager for the world to hear Radioactive and proud to be presenting the album on Shady Records," said Eminem. "Yelawolf is a true original and he has crafted an incredible record."
Yelawolf has just completed a successful run of dates on The Vans Warped Tour as well as a string of European shows with the Wu Tang Clan.
