Yelawolf's major label debut, Radioactive, landed in stores this week, and the Shady Records rapper teamed up with his label boss for an online promo session on Monday. During a Twitter Q&A, Eminem tried his hand at playing talk show host, while Yelawolf fielded questions about the album and his favorite superhero. Read the jocular exchange between the two melanin-challenged emcees reproduced in full below.
Eminem: Where you at celebrating the release of #radioactive? U are a true fan. How’s it feel to finally have #radioactive out there?
Yelawolf: Sup cracker dick?… I’m in a JackDaniels bottle homie… Watchin 8mile again… sh*ts crazy… it really happened.
Eminem: ok white dawg. So when did you start recording #Radioactive?
Yelawolf: In Vegas about 10 months ago, in January. Then I played it for you later that month. We had about 12 keepers.
Eminem: Sure did. What song from #Radioactive is your favorite?
Yelawolf: Today, its “hardest love song”. I played it live with a band rehearsing for the Jimmy Kimmel show… sounded saucy.
Eminem: Really? Why is that your favorite?
Yelawolf: Well it varies from day to day, yesterday I was on “Gutter” all day… It was raining and I was on some dark sh*t.
Eminem: Who or what inspired you the most while recording #Radioactive?
Yelawolf: Man… I just used the people around me… every one who was involved… and of course life experience.
Eminem: Why did you call it #radioactive?
Yelawolf: Its the fall out to my journey so far. The #Radioactive material that came after the war. The uphill battle to get here……My science experiment gone right.
Eminem: Now they said to ask some stupid ones. Batman or Superman?
Yelawolf: If I had to pick, Batman. But my uncle Critter could kick both their ass in a single bound & shot gun a beer at the speed of light. BAMA!
Eminem: R u going to the mall later?
Yelawolf: Why?… You need some new air max ? hahahaa Honky Kong !!
Eminem: If u could play #radioactive for any person in the world, who would it be?
Yelawolf: That bitch ass motherf***er who threw my demo at my feet from his car window in 05… I was holding my 1 year old son……now my son is 7 and he’s got anything he wants. Thank you Marshall.
Eminem: Ok @yelawolf I’m out! #radioactive.
