Eminem & Yelawolf Cover VIBE’s Year-End Issue


Marshall and Yela cover VIBE’s year end issue. Here’s an excerpt from the cover story by Erik Parker where they talk about joking around about their whiteness.

Eminem, what advice do you offer, if any, on being scrutinized for being a white rapper. Do you guys ever talk about race in that way?
Eminem: We make jokes about it, but I don’t think we talk about it in depth. As I was listening to his music, I am not even thinking about any of that shit. It’s just the music. That’s one of the things that’s great about it. I’m not even thinking about it when I hear the music.
Yelawolf: We do poke fun of it because it’s funny. Like, he calls me White Dog.

Oh, you called him that on the BET Awards Cypher. I didn’t realize it was an ongoing joke?
EM: Yeah, or Beige Sheep. [Laughs]
YW: Cracker Nuts. Whatever, I think it’s kinda unspoken.
EM: We deal with it enough as it is. So now, let’s make music.
YW: Let’s make great records. At the end of the day, that’s all there is to do.

Check out a couple more samples from the story here. The issue hits newsstands on December 6th and will feature a split cover with T.I.

YelaWolf must be an dope Mc, due to the co-sign by artist such as SlaughterHouse along with Eminem... Trunk Muzik !!!
