We ran across this little lame wannabe rapper on the net bragging about how he is touring and doing big things. He has a video of his grandfathers camper and is calling it his tour bus. He has a radio shack mic taped to the table we took a picture of. The rappers name is Gayso or Payso we are not sure, and he claims he is on tour and he is the next biggest rapper in America. This is not the way you want to try and start a career.
Big K.R.I.T. collaborated with Yelawolf on an entire project. According to Big K.R.I.T. the two will drop Country Cousins later this year or early next year and it will be a full blown album. While promoting his tour, K.R.I.T. stopped by Power 105.1′s commercial radio station to do a promo interview. Faced with criticism about Yelawolf, K.R.I.T. defended his partner-in-rhyme and explained a bit more about the album. “What are you talking about?” K.R.I.T. asked, speaking about criticism for Yela. “Everyone’s entitled to their opinion but I can’t feel that way. Once you break down the lyrical content, the homie got something to say. You’ve got to listen, though…You are missing out on some good music.” “We’re trying to make it an album,” he shared, before saying it should be out by the end of this year or the start of 2013. There is not a new rapper in NY that has just came out in the last 3 years that can deal with Yelawolfs wordplay on his tracks.
