Waylon Jennings' grandson Struggle is an 'Outlaw,' too

When Nashville spitter Struggle credits Waylon Jennings as a featured artist on his track "Outlaw Shit," it's a lot different than Kanye and Jay including dead soul men Otis Redding and Curtis Mayfield as "featured artists" on respective Watch the Throne cuts "Otis" and "The Joy."

That's because the man in the black hat is more than a sample-worthy deceased country legend to Struggle; Waylon Jennings is his grandfather. And with this hard-luck story of a song — which samples Jennings' classic "Outlaw Shit" and also features alive-and-well Atlanta MC Yelawolf — Struggle bears more than a little family resemblance.
