Yelawolf Embraces Being An Underdog In “Opie Taylor”

I love a smooth banger like this!


Yelawolf is prepping to release “Ghetto Cowboy” in less than three weeks. What do I expect from the album? Nothing but raw/unadulterated music. In “Opie Taylor,” one of the singles off of “Ghetto Cowboy,” Yelawolf mellows things down a bit, as he uses the song as an opportunity to talk about embracing an underdog role plenty of individuals like myself can relate to:

Well, a quarter pound of pot in a shoebox
Got five grand stuffed in a tube sock
Ain’t got no fucking credit to use
I paid cash for my car at the used lot

Small town, trapped in a sinkhole
Still keepin’ it cool in the pistol
Me and dope’s like green to a pickle
Yeah folk, like a haystack to a sickle

Personally, I love the emotional feel “Opie Taylor” gives off. Not only did I get “College Dropout” vibes from the instrumental that powers it, but I also feel like Yelawolf comes across like a completely poised MC that wants his music to be felt just as much as heard in the song (You know this dude can be very unchained at times).

 

OVERALL RATING (5/5)
