I pre-ordered it. Definitely looking forward to it. I heard the track 'Richard' with Em on it and it was dope.

I'm gonna cop it as well. I bought "Second Round's On Me" several years back on vinyl and felt it was a great record. However, for as great as it was it was a victim of poor choices of singles.

I didn't think either "Snitch" or "Jamaican Girl" should have been singles off the album. For me, it should have been "They Wanna Know", "All Of My Life" or even "There They Go". The choices of released singles were my primary beef with how Interscope handled that album.

Eminem killed it on "Richard". Still wouldn't buy a Trice album.

Ha! Not an Obie fan? To me he was Ems best acquisition.

Obie's... decent. Nothing against him, his music just isn't anything I'd go out of my way for. Yelawolf is on another level compared to Obie. The Yela song Em's on, "Throw It Up", is better than "Richard", too.

I played "Richard" again and picked up a funny line, by the way. Em's trying to convince a woman to give him head and says "you only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow!". I don't know, I just find that hilarious.

Ian, Yelawolf vs Obie? Obie >> Yelawolf, but thats a discussion for another day.

I'll be checking this out.

I definitely liked some tracks off Radioactive, other not so much. Yelawolf def has potential so time will time... But for me, Obie already has 2 very solid albums and Special Reserve was good too.

You posted that on the 29th. Now it's the 30th.

Anyway, in terms of raw talent, Trice simply does not have the immense vocal precision or lyricism that Yela does. Need I remind y'all that Yelawolf was featured on Tech N9ne's "Worldwide Choppers", a track that only the world's most technically gifted rappers were invited on? He's on that record for a reason: He's an exceptional spitter. Obie Trice is a good spitter, but not exceptional. Sure, Radioactive was kind of so-so, but I'm going off of pure talent, not bodies of work.

EDIT: Well, it's the 30th here in New York, anyways. I don't know what time zone Ama's on... Ha! No pun intended.

Hey Ian, its already 10:30am the 30th here in Afghanistan! So youre good in my eyes lol.

Worldwide Choppers was actually the first time I ever heard Yelawolf, and what interested me in him. And IMO one of the best tracks of 2011.

Posted on Mar 29, 2012 11:14:50 PM PDT
You dudes are livin in the past. It's already 5pm on the 30th down here.

I could tell you who wins in Race 7 at the track but that would alter the space time continuum or something like that....alls I know is, when that guy killed the butterfly, the ish hit the fan.

But on topic, Trice never did it for me, not on the level of Yelawolf anyway.

Obie is a better overall rapper than Yealwolf but Wolf has him in the delivery and technique dept.'s.

"Need I remind y'all that Yelawolf was featured on Tech N9ne's "Worldwide Choppers", a track that only the world's most technically gifted rappers were invited on?"

I found this funny.That proves nothing but Tech wanted some fast rappers on that track. Fast rapping has to be one of the biggest smoke and mirrors styles created. I respect it and like it but people get to caught up in the speed of the rap and forget that is not the end all be all of a great rapper. Not saying you were saying that.

I really dont understand how a track on Tech9's album is a yardstick for rapping supremacy. Are you sleeping Ian? Obie kills yelawolf. Yelawolf just has better delivery, which is nothing if you aint gat shttt to say. (Not that Yelawolf doesnt have stuff to say, but he doesnt have anything that will match what Obie can bring).

Well, at the end of the day, they're just two rappers whom I'm not particularly crazy about. Don't get me wrong, though, it isn't just Yelawolf's speed I was referencing, which is undeniable, it's his clarity and lricism. Check out his verse in the BET Shady 2.0 cypher. That, alone, is as impressive to me as anything Obie's done. Now, you'll have to forgive me, but I'm honestly not passionate enough about either of these guys' music to say more. I like them both. I never said Obie was weak, just that I wouldn't personally buy his stuff.

And yes, Sloan is definitely an Aussie.

Yep, I'm definitely an Aussie.

Live from the land of the convicts!

I would not classify Yelawolf as a speed rapper. Not in the category of Twista, Tech N9ne, etc. But he does have nice variety of delivery. When he does speed it up, he sounds a lot more natural with it then Em does when Em tries to spit fast.

Speaking of that, did anyone notice Ems verse on Throw It Up... "This is, ugly, boy, sway, putting, toe, tags, on you, motha, f***, h**, bags" That is totally TECH N9NE original style right there Em was trying to spit. Decent, but his tounge is definitely not as sharp.

Em more than makes up for it with his wit being sharper than, well, most everyone.

Em's been speed-rapping before Yelawolf was in high school.

True, the only reason Em slowed his style down was because Kid Rock told him to. True story.
