How did you get all these people? You seem to be able to secure a lot of relationships.
I’m the underdog and everybody wants the underdog to win. I feel like people have seen where I come from. When you come around me, it’s not fake, it’s the real.

There are some very savvy features on this album such as Rick Ross, Anthony Hamilton, and the late Amy Winehouse. Were there any other artists that you wanted to collaborate with that didn’t make it on the album?
One of the only other rappers I thought about was AZ. And I wanted Eminem for a remix for “Daughters,” but he had already expressed that he’s spoken so much about his daughter throughout his career that he had done that subject too much. And me and Jay-Z talked about doing some things, but our schedules were so crazy.
On Thursday, Yelawolf went up to Shade 45′s “All Out Show” and talked to Rude Jude and Lord Sear about working with Eminem, the effects of the internet, his sophomore album “Love Story” being delayed, his upcoming projects, his problems with the Interscope and Shady Records, his debut album “Radioactive”, Machine Gun Kelly comparisons and more.
