Biography

Michael Wayne Atha (born December 30, 1979), better known by his stage name Yelawolf, is an American rapper. He is currently signed to Shady Records, Ghet-O-Vision Entertainment and Interscope Records. He is co-managed by Redd Klay Entertainment along with his personal manager Jeremy “J Dot” Jones.

Raised in Gadsden, Alabama, Atha appeared on the reality series The Road to Stardom with Missy Elliott and released his independent debut album Creek Water in 2005. Two years later, Atha signed to Columbia Records and released the single “Kickin’” from his unreleased first studio album, before being released from the label later that same year. From 2008 to 2010, Atha released an extended play and four mixtapes with Ghet-O-Vision Entertainment. Trunk Muzik 0-60, Atha’s fourth mixtape, was also released by Interscope Records. In 2011, Atha signed to Shady Records and his debut studio album Radioactive was released on November 21, 2011 to positive reviews. It entered the Billboard 200 at number 27. He spent much of his childhood in various locations around the southern United States, including Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Atlanta, Georgia, and Antioch, Tennessee.

Atha is half white and Cherokee, and the name Yelawolf is a reference to his Native American roots.

Yelawolf is an avid skateboarder and made attempts at a professional skateboarding career but was forced to abandon due to injuries. Yelawolf began releasing mixtapes independently in 2007. He was briefly signed to Columbia Records in 2007 and left the label the same year.

    This is a type of artist that is only appreciated for those who know what melodic music and RAP are. First, u gotta distinguish one from another. Then u must know pioneer artists from the style he used to mix up with rap (Johnny cash, for example). Finally, u must know what rap is and understand that this is originality and creativity. This guy is a fuckin genius!

    He's awesome. His music isn't featureless and he has distinctive voice, that's why I like his music a lot.

    Interesting album. Cant say it is the greatest, but he deserved kudos for doing something different. [2] I think Trunk Muzik Returns is the best.

    New album has really really good songs. Great mixture between rap, country-rap and alternative-country.

    Love Story is not an album for someone who's looking for a new dope rap album. But I can't help it, I think Love Story is an great album. The mix of singing and rapping is great and it's a interesting concept to mix two diffrent styles with each other.
