Yelawolf Names Producers For "Love Story," Speaks On Eminem's Involvement

Yelawolf updates on his pending sophomore album.

Yelawolf recently announced that he’s working on his sophomore album Love Story, tentatively set for release this summer. During an interview with InkedMag.com, the Shady Records rapper said that the project will heavily feature production from WillPower and Malay, but remained tight-lipped about the guest artists who contribute to the LP.

“The album is called Love Story and I’ll be working with WillPower and Malay, lay money,” he revealed. “I’m definitely not going to give up any features that I plan to have on this project. I’m going to keep everything super low key. As far as my crew just the same crew, same as I always do. The focus of the album is the experience since Radioactive and just putting all that into a project.”

Catfish Billy also addressed the possibility of his Shady Records boss Eminem participating in the project, but said that nothing has been set in stone.

“Well you know it’s Shady Records, and of course that's the homie, so the door is always open. I’m not sure when or if he’s going to be available during that time, but I’m positive that we’re going to be working together on a project. [I] always keep him in the circle because you know it’s important to keep it in the family.”

    this guy will go nowhere hes not dope at all

  • didnt expect that one *sarcasm*

    Eminem and his fans are like herpes, you can't get rid if them #sadface

  • #nomixing

    Rap music is for black ppl only. #truth

      -sigh- I'm not even going to retort to that...bringing #swag into the conversation just proves my point as to how retarded hip hop fans have become. Seriously...

    • death2saltines!!!!

      White ppl only like and embrace the hip hop culture because they lack any ethnicity or #swag, they're soulless evil shells with darkness and death inside with penis envy which is what Im sure fuels present day racism.

    • @anonymous

      White ppl can have an opinion on hip hop and rap and it will even be considered and valued.....if those white ppl are the label execs.

    • Anonymous

      yeah clearly it's only for black people...majority of eminem fans...White. Majority of tech n9ne fans...White. Majority of waka flocka flame fans, future fans and gucci mane fans...black. I'm sick of the bullshit on this site stating that White people can't have an opinion on hip hop that's valid because we are White and only listen to lil Wayne, eminem and drake apparently. RA the rugged man shits on your favourite rapper.

    • Khalid Farrad

      We both hate them, so let's get together and make take all devils out of the planet!!!

    • right

      Yeah there's no way a white rapper can ever sell million of records and become one of the greatest to ever do it...Oh Wait!

  • Anonymous

    last album was great minus 1-2 songs if he put the songs from the deluxe on instead of songs like radio, and a few others, he wld have had his first classic album and as for features: just Eminem,Game, maybe mele, and then some artists that no-body really pays attention to. im expecting big things after that first album as for sales: who cares about the sales as long as its good music? these days, only rappers that sing for hoes got platinum: drake(oooooooooh yea, ohhhhhhhhhh yea, ooooooooooh yea), wayne(how to lovvvvvvvvvve, how to loveeeeeeeeeeeeee, oooooooh) keep making that real shit!

      I tried to like radioactive but it was truely bad...the only thing I could go back to listen to was hard White and animal

      that's right. White better really make that real killer shit, some shit my peoples can relate to, not that fake club women oriented white controlled nigger shit YMCMB do

      His radioactive album was terrible..I'm a huge fan of his mixtapes but the album was just terrible. Way too many features, he's a talented kid i wish he had let himself shine more. I cant buy a solo artists album that seems like a compilation. Hopefully he really keeps it in the family this time and chill with all the features.

  • scott

    kinda weak title, but lets not forget eminems sslp was weak in comparison of the mmlp, gues we need to wait and see before we judge, he may just get better with each record, hopefully

  • Mitchell

    "The doors always open"? Kinda sounds like Eminem is ignoring him since his first album flopped.

  • bmoc

    I want more songs with the feel of Pop The Trunk. Hopefully no more songs with Gangsta Boo.......

  • Destroylilwayne

    I hope he makes this album a little more dark. I think the reason all of us didn't like most of the tracks on radioactive is because it sounded too pop-hop. Shady records needs to realize he isn't going to sell a million or even half a million unless they give him real creative control. DON'T FOCUS ON THE DAMN FEATURES YELA'. WE'RE GONNA BUY YOUR ALBUM FOR YOU NOT SOME CORNY BITCHES SINGING CHORUS'S. ONLY FEW PEEPS I WOULD LIKE TO SEE ON ALBUM ARE RITTZ, TECH NINE, RAEKWON AND MAYBE EMINEM (IF HE DOESN'T GIVE YOU SOME COOKIE CUTTER 16).

    NOBODY GIVES A SHIT-- ASK LAUGHTERHOUSE SIX MONTH FROM NOW WHEN JIMMY I. SHOWS THEM THE BILLS!!!

  • jaceshadoe

    Word of advice to Yelwolf; keep making tracks like "Let's Roll" "Hard White" "Write Your Name" "Animal" and replace the rest of the tracks. Yelawolf needs collabs like he had on "trunk muzik", maybe an tech n9ne, Asher Roth, another Raekwon, Jadakiss would be dope.

  • Shruglife

    Damn man is it possible for anybody on Shady records to do an interview without mentioning Eminem for hype?

  • Swag

    Yelawolf fucking sucks. White ppl can't rap for shit.

    • Jay

      One of the greatest rappers alive is white. Just saying.

    • A White Guy

      Only time i'll comment at clowns like you. Gotta make clear I am in no way racist. BUt sorry Salaam Rashid Muhammad, you deserve to be hung. You took it from rap to caucasians being an unfit race in like half a sentence. But what do I know, I'm destructive by nature because my skin color told me so. Fuck outta here, eat a dick. Lastly, any race can rap, and the greatest of all time is White. If you got a problem with that as a different race, pick up a mic and do better then. CLOWNS!

    • Salaam Rashid Muhammad

      the only time I agree with you. White people cannot rap. They are destructive. If you look back at their history, they already proved that they do not have the capacity of living with other people. Seriously, the world would be a safer place without them.

  • jus sayin'

    yelawolf is whack.. his flow sucks, his lyrics suck, his beats suck..

  • Anonymous

    Hopefully he returns with more trunk musik vibe

    i actually liked radioactive, then again everything sounds amazing on monster beats, it had a refreshing high quality sound to it

  • casper21

    his last album had a lot of corny songs, beats, chorus's etc. but a few really good ones. I think the choice in title is really weak. And I really doubt that summer release, I doubt a 2012 release. To me that's saying that you've given up on the last record, how bout pushing another single Shady Records? Give your own artists the push they need, if people aren't feeling a current single, shove another one down their throats like all the other pop stars do. And the way its sounding from this article, Marshall ain't got a hand on this record at all, he's busy making slaughterhouse album of the year.

  • Lumba

    I think his last album should've been called Love Story... There were way too many pop sounding beats and girly hooks. I like Yelawolf, but the whole album went downhill after the Eminem phone call and he said, "Yo, you need a song for chicks." I wonder how much that had to do with Em.

    • Anonymous

      Well considering Yelawolf said he wanted commercial success and named his album RADIO ACTIVE probably very little. SH has said Em lets them have 100% creative control so I'd imagine its the same for Yela.

  • SHADY KID

    LOVE STORY WTF ???? ANYONE ELSE SEE A PROB W/THAT TITLE ! IM DIG AND SUPPORT WOLF BUT LOVE STORY SOPH LP AND RADIOACTIVE DID BOMB IF HE DONT KNOCK THIS ONE OUT THE PARK GAME OVER !!!! HIS FLOW IS TIGHT , BUT HE BETTER INVOLVE SHADY AND GET A BANGER SONG W/MATHERS OR ELSE ITS NOT GOING TO BE GOOD. HIS LIVE PERFORMANCES ARE DOPE SEEN TWICE, WE C WHAT HE HAS IN STORE AND BY SUMMER !! GO GET EM WOLF BETTER BE BRINGING THAT TRUNK MUZIK TYPE SHIT .. SHADY

  • jt3000

    I love yelawolf and am a big fan but he is fixing to find out the bad part about being on a major label. He will not get another release for at least 2 years from radioactive.

      They do lie when bird man buys his own albums and shit. Haha

  • firealarm

    Damn he wants to have it out by summer? His first album isn't even a year old. I guess he knows his fans were disappointed with Radioactive and he's ready to prove he's still dope as fuck.
