Wiz Khalifa, Yelawolf, Joe Scudda

When: Tue., April 6, 9:30 p.m. 2010

Yelawolf occupies an intriguing world between Confederate flags and graffiti tags that might require preconception adjustment for some. Even though Rich Boy took us there back in 2007, a rapper from Alabama still bears a big burden of proof. However, of late, Yelawolf's electric, stage antics and high-velocity, proletariat raps have been getting nods from the hip-hop community—usually grossly biased about a white southern rapper trying to make noise. He hasn't faltered by shying away from the opportunity to build an entity around his name, taking advantage of hype that teeters on the line of cultish fascination and new-school veneration. He's linked with Raekwon on one of this year's most outstanding collaborations, "I Wish," following it with an increased-caliber remix with fellow southerners Cy-Hi and Pill. Both he and Pittsburgh emcee, Wiz Khalifa are trying to make a name for themselves. I'm at least obliged to help them out. With Joe Scudda, who finally has a mixtape to call his own. —Eric Tullis

Price: $12-$14
