Although Shady Records have built arguably rap’s strongest lyrical roster by acquiring the Slaughterhouse quartet and Yelawolf, it seems all is not peachy with the latter. Calling into L.A.’s All Out Show on Shade 45, the inked-up rapper vented his frustrations with his Shady Records and Interscope home, particularly regarding his 2011 debut album, Radioactive.
“Radioactive, the last project I put out, was deliberately given to Interscope and it was on a f*cking silver platter, given to them, like radio records after radio records purposefully… and these motherf*ckers have given me one single in eleven months,” he said.
“I don’t know what the f*ck they’re doing up there. Shady’s great, I love Shady Records, I just think there’s some sh*t going on upstairs.”
Yela also went into detail on his future material, revealing that his sophomore LP Love Story will now be released in 2013 due to time constraints, his next project The Heart Of Dixie (a collaboration with fellow Alabama natives M16 and DJ Frank White) will be more like a “mini album” than a mixtape, and assured his fans that his 5-track EP with Travis Barker, PsychoWhite, is coming very soon.
Always providing quotables, the Shady Records man concluded the interview by speaking on comparisons with fellow white rapper, Machine Gun Kelly.
“It’s probably the most insulting thing on the planet to be asked to sign a Machine Gun Kelly autograph.”
