Yelawolf Delivers His "WAR STORY" Double-LP / New Video "Legend" Out Today


June 7, 2024 (Los Angeles, CA) -- After building months of anticipation throughout the music industry, Alabama-born and Nashville-based multiplatinum chart-topping artist and entrepreneur Yelawolf proudly presents his new double-LP, War Story – (Part 1) Michael Wayne & (Part 2) Trunk Muzik 4ever out today via Slumerican.


Listen to WAR STORY HERE


To celebrate the arrival of the album, Wolf unveils a new music video for his track “Legend. In the visual, Yelawolf raps against a setting sun as his words lay heavy on the beat while reflecting upon what brought him here with some of his most incisive wordplay yet and a litany of shout-outs from past to present. He muses, “The story is still being written, I’m a living juxtaposition. Yelawolf is what happen when you left the devil to do all the babysitting.” While an electric guitar solo wails in the background, he lights a cigarette, flicks a match, and the past goes up in flames. Reborn in a burst fire, he puts it best, “That’s how you make a legend.” Watch it HERE.


War Story – (Part 1) Michael Wayne & (Part 2) Trunk Muzik 4ever arrives as Yelawolf’s magnum opus. GRAMMY® Award winner Malay [Frank Ocean, Alicia Keys] helmed the production for Michael Wayne, while WLPWR [Wiz Khalifa, Eminem, Travis Barker] produced Trunk Muzik 4ever.
