Song Review: YelaWolf – "Honey Brown"
Fri, 18 Jul 2014 12:10:29
All too often, we hear that everything’s been done in hip-hop. However, Yelawolf continues to redefine what’s possible in the genre with every subsequent release.
"Honey Brown" sees him uphold a tradition that started with Trunk Muzik 0-60 and became perfected on Radioactive. With an acoustic guitar jangle, slippery Southern swagger, and a slyly irresistible hook, "Honey Brown" drips with inimitable charisma and talent. Nobody’s making rap music this outside of the boundaries, and Alabama’s finest can just as easily autobiographically spit, "All my life I’ve been friends with thugs. I never did judge cause my momma sold drugs" before launching into a hook, "I wanna run around the whole wide world just me and my girl". That’s the dynamic he possesses.
"Honey Brown" will stick to you, and it further sticks the point that Yelawolf is one of the game’s best and brightest talents.
