Despite putting out an acclaimed album in 2017, the Southern Gothic inspired Trial By Fire, some still felt that Yelawolf had lost his way. In truth, the rapper simply switched the style up, allowing the vast diversity of his musical roots to manifest in different ways. For some, the shift away from traditional hip-hop proved an insurmountable obstacle; for others, it enhanced Yela's legacy, bringing a not-often-seen sense of versatility into the fold. Be that as it may, it would appear that Yela is taking things back to basics for his upcoming Trunk Muzik 3.
The Alabam rapper has come forth with another teaser track, this one titled "Pinto Bean." Yes, we are a few days late on this one, and regretfully so. The man is clearly snappin', putting forth a welcome hunger evocative of "You Ain't No DJ," employing flows that would make former label boss Eminem proud. "You can't take Catfish Billy up out the flows," spits Yela, kicking off a whirlwind. "Fuck around looking like somebody took your best chicken from the coop, and took your coupe and crashed it into the booth with the full intention of fucking you." Keep an eye out for TM3, dropping soon. If it's anything like Yela's recent efforts, it's going to be some fire.
When I got Hillbillies posted up, dipping Skoal behind me
Go poke around the soil, my roots are covered in blood
How can I not be deep? unfold the origami
I went from salami and ramen noodles to wasabi and "what is it?" I can't pronounce those, who?"
See you can take the boy up out the swimming hole
But you can't take Catfish Billy up out the flows
Fuck around looking like somebody took your best chicken from the coop
And took your coupe and crashed it into the booth
With the full intention of fucking you
