Posted By on October 28, 2011

     Yelawolf recently sat down to talk about entire #occupy movement but rather discuss the events, he spoke about the working class and how important he feels it is to protect them.

“The nine to five worker makes the world go round and if you don’t protect them and really put them first you’re fucking up the foundation. And if the foundation’s fucked up the whole building’s gonna fall down,” Yelawolf explained to V6M. “And that’s where I’m at with that…We are the people that hold the country together. People that cook the food, clean the streets, lay the concrete, fight the wars, build the houses, dig the ditches, lay the bricks, build the tires, build the cars. Who else is gonna do that?”

     Yelawolf then went on to talk about before getting in the music vusiness, he used to work a nine to five like everyone in his family.

"All I’ve ever known is to go out and work. Before I was doing music I was doing nine to five work. I’ve always lived check to check,” said Yelawolf. “My family, my grandmother and my grandfather have always lived check to check. My grandmother retired from the food world, in the bakery. My pop-pop retired from Goodyear. My mom was a bartender her whole life. My pop drives a truck, hauls scrap metal. And any hierarchy that negatively affects the working man is fucked up. That shits got to stop.”

     The new Shady Records artist finished up by saying he isn't knocking the CEO's or corportate America but insists there music be a common ground.

“You can’t discredit some kid who went to Harvard, busted his ass to get a degree, became the CEO of a company. But neither one of them can forget one another. They both make the world go round. They have to just know how to coexist,” he explained.
