Yelawolf Early Life and Career
Michael Wayne Atha was born on the 30th of December, 1979, in Gadsden, Alabama. His mother Sheila, gave birth to him when she was just 16 years old. Throughout his childhood, Atha moved often.
As regards to his stage name, Yelawolf has stated, “Yelawolf is Native American. My father is Cherokee and I am also from Cherokee county in Gadsden, Alabama. Yela stands for light, the sun, fire, power, hunger, and Wolf stands for my will to survive… my fierceness.
Yelawolf made the jump to Sony BMG for the release of his single ‘Kickin’. Disenchanted with life on a major record label, he went back to the underground rap scene. Freshly inspired, he labored to build an audience for himself through MySpace and mixtapes.
In 2010, he featured on Bizarre’s album ‘Friday Night’. It became clear that Yelawolf was attaching himself with Eminem’s Shady label and its clique of artists. His contract to the label was publicised in 2011, and by the year end, his official debut, Radioactive, had dropped.
A tour in 2013 with Hopsin promoted his album Love Story, but with Shady marking its 15th anniversary and Yelawolf embarking on tour with DJ Paul, it took until 2015 for the album to drop.
Reunifying with Travis Barker, “Out of Control” was the first to drop, succeeded by “Daylight,” “Shadows,” and “Row Your Boat.” In 2017, he issued the single “Punk” featuring Barker and rapper Juicy J. That track would appear on the rapper’s third major-label drop, Trial by Fire, which came out in late 2017.
