Country hip hop artist Yelawolf dropped his independent debut, Creek Water, in 2005. That feat was followed by an EP and four mixtapes, one of the latter titled Trunk Muzik, which scored him a deal with Interscope Records that re-released it as Trunk Musik 0-60 in 2010.

A year later Yelawolf signed with Eminem’s Shady Records and released the full-length Radioactive, followed up by Love Story via Slumerican/Shady/Interscope Records in 2015. Love Story contains the track, Best Friend, featuring Eminem as guest vocalist.

“I’m telling the truth about a lot of things,” Yelawolf said about Love Story. “I try to be as honest as I can with everything I do.”

Yelawolf’s latest album, Trial By Fire, is set to drop later this year.
