The saying "write about what you know" is a manifesto for tatted rapper Yelawolf. His evocative tales of meth and guns are gritty ruminations on a day in the life of a Southern miscreant.

After a botched deal with Columbia several years ago, he kept at it and landed a deal with Interscope, followed by breakout collabs with Raekwon, Big Boi and Gucci Mane, and his major label preview: Trunk Muzik: 0-60.
