Favorite Quotes from Yelawolf

“My homies in Gadsden aren’t as exposed as I am cultural, which is awesome – that’s why I love going home. I’m in the kitchen with people who don’t know anything but the simple life, what’s important to them, and that’s dope.” – Yelawolf
“I equally love both, classic rock and hip-hop. I love all music, really, and I really use classic rock a lot. I’m heavily influenced by that melodically in my music. I can’t really separate the two.” – Yelawolf
“I’m from the South, and there’s a different understanding of how to chop. There’s a syllable play. It’s a delicate art. Your accent has a lot to do with it. If you’re from a certain area, words don’t roll off your tongue as slick.” – Yelawolf
“My grandmother, grandfather, my mom – we’ve always been driven by laughter. It’s what held us together. Thanksgivings, any kind of family get-together, we usually end up in tears.” – Yelawolf
“For real, some of my favorite music is Mexican. It’s something about the bassline and the drumming. I can’t even speak Spanish, but that’s probably why I like it so much.” – Yelawolf
