Yelawolf to Embark on Nationwide Tour This September
Yelawolf is about to have a busy Fall.
The rapper recently announced his Slumerican Tour, where he'll be the headliner on nearly 50 dates nationwide. The nonstop action kicks off September 13, in Yela's home state of Alabama, and continues until late November, making stops everywhere from Texas to Utah to Michigan to New York along the way. Rittz, Trouble Andrew and DJ Vajra will be openers on the lengthy run.
As previously reported, Yelawolf is gearing up to release a new EP, Psycho White. The project is a collaboration with drummer Travis Barker, and is said to already be complete. “Every time we would get in the lab, we’d knock something out,” he told Billboard recently. “We just collaborated and…had a meeting of the minds. There’s a lot of cool stuff we came up with.”
It's still unclear, though, how and when the project will be released. “I don’t know Travis’ situation fully, the legals of it, whether it’s going to be free or sold or whatever,” the Interscope signee continued. “It’ll be available. As artists, hopefully we can get it on the shelves, but we’ll get it out there somehow. I’m just hyped for people to hear it.”
For fans waiting for another full length project from the tattooed rhymer, they'll have to wait a little longer, as his sophomore effort is tentatively scheduled for a 2013 release.
