Yelawolf Says Rap Is Unfair To White Emcees

Posted By on May 5, 2010

     Upcoming rapper, recently signed to Interscope Records, Yelawolf is addressing the difficulty that white artists face when trying to become successful rappers in the music business. Yelawolf says he feels it will take years before white rappers will be treated equally. "Years and years of great white artists. It's going to take more classics from white artists that make international impacts," Yela said about clearing out discrimination. "I mean Rock n' Roll is black music, but there were plenty talented white Rock n' Roll that just kind of made that line disappear. It's going to take decades. It won't happen in my lifetime. The odds are just slim for a white artist in Hip-Hop. This is a black culture… it's just something you have to respect and appreciate. Have to be thankful that you're able to do it. Do what you do and love what you do. You have to be passionate about what you do and let it live."
