Yelawolf’s ‘Trunk Muzik 3’ Will Be His Last Album With Shady Records
Yelawolf's time on Shady Records appears to be coming to an end. The Alabama rapper, who has been signed to the label since 2011, announced during an Aug. 12 concert that his upcoming Trunk Muzik 3 project would be his last album for the label.
"Trunk Muzik 3 is my last album on Shady Records. Five fucking albums on Shady Records. I feel blessed for that," Yelawolf told the crowd. The rapper then gave a shoutout to Eminem, telling the crowd to "make some noise for Marshall Mathers" and went on to perform their 2015 collaboration, "Best Friend."
While Yelawolf has yet to reveal a release date for Trunk Muzik 3, the artist has been teasing the project on social media, announcing "Catfish Billy Part 2" would be the album's first single and teasing a few surprise guests for the project.
"Overall .. I’m pretty stoked these days ... #tm3 is coming soon !! with some amazing surprise features !! and I’ve got one hell of a team on the road," Yelawolf wrote on Instagram earlier this month.
Trunk Muzik 3 will serve as a follow-up to Yela's 2017 album, Trial by Fire. Produced entirely by Yelawolf himself, the project features guest appearances from Juicy J, Travis Barker, Kid Rock and more.
Up next for Yela, the rhymer can currently be found on the road for his Trunk Muzik III Tour. The trek, which kicked off on July 27, continues tonight (Aug. 16) in Spokane, Wash. and runs until Sept. 1 in Houston.
