    It's probably no coincidence that Alabama rapper Yelawolf is signed to Interscope, the same label as Eminem, who is keeping the music biz afloat as Recovery flies off the shelves. Yelawolf has a nasal vocal style similar to our pal Em, and he drops lyrical science and flows at every turn on this video for "Pop the Trunk." The rapper, who is also of Cherokee Indian descent, boasts a ton of tattoos; the most eye-catching one is on his neck. He has a style that reminds us of Em, but he is hardly a copycat. He's got a fresh style that pays homage to Em without trying to be Em, Part Deux. The song is also one of the catchiest jams we've heard in a while.

    Watch the video below. It's full of slices of real life and features Yelawolf rapping spliced with images of people struggling in America. It's full of arresting images.
