Yelawolf continues to discuss the influences that allowed him to create his own unique style. He also compares older and current tracks to the upcoming tracks from Radioactive with Shady Records.
“Some rappers come out here with CDs like, that’s wack by the way. Stop bringing your CDs to shows, get a DJ. I’m not talking about Sage Francis, I’m talking about corny rappers with fucking CDs.”
Best line. The opening episode comprises of Yelawolf telling us about his changes from last year’s Fader Fort performance and how he developed his sound. Also, he drops few gems for you aspiring rappers out there (besides the quote).

Nardwuar interviews Lil’ B at SXSW.
These dudes stay keeping me entertained, and you add Nardwuar’s goofy ass to the mix. An oddly funny interview.
In the final segment Tyler clears up the comments he made about Kanye and not wanting to be compared to Ne-Yo when he wants to be on Michael Jackson status, if he was an R&B artist. Also, he takes a jab at Shake from 2dopeboyz. *shrugs*
Earl Sweatshirt’s first album is better than Nas’ Illmatic? I don’t even know who Earl Sweatshirt is.
Peter Rosenberg catches up with Odd Future at SXSW and discusses thing from their performance at Webster Hall to Tyler being a fan of Justin Bieber. An interesting bunch of characters I must say, but entertaining.
Here’s a teaser video to get all that are going to Austin a little more excited about Fader Fort by Fiat event. From experience I know Fader Fort events are always insane, and I’m sure it’ll be even crazier in Austin. ENJOY!
