[Interview] Yelawolf talks about sharing his story and willing to die for it (Pt.1 and Pt.2)

Yelawolf Performance Live at the Music Hall London 2012

The Come Up Show is proud to present our interview with Yelawolf. Conducted in Toronto, Ontario at Community 54 right before his meet and greet, Yelawolf opened up to us about in detail about his life.
You have to have a lot of pain before you can be culturally impactful, once you share your story that’s the difference between a rapper and a superstar Yelawolf.
If you remember the XXL freshman roundtable last year Yelawolf gave some valuable advice to the younger emcees like Mac Miller, Kendrick Lamar, et al, about sharing your story and tribulations. Since Yelawolf has been through his fair share of pain, I asked him if he felt that all of the struggle had a purpose, if he knew that his story was being created when he was homeless living on food stamps.

Continuing with Part. 2 I could tell Styles P is more focused than ever! He is promoting a healthy lifestyle by opening a Juice Bar in the Bronx, and giving advice on our diet.
It's important to use our voice as artists instead of talking about jewerly and fast cars, I try to address some of the issues our community needs, like try to eat healthy, a lot of us have children and family. In America we don't have free healthcare and most don't have insurance so we should try to do as much as we can to prevent diseases and health risks. Most of us especially in Hip-Hop we have a fast life most of us  drink, smoke, and other things. We have to weight it out and at least eat right. Styles P.
With his busy lifestyle Styles P still takes the time to "wake up and smell the roses", he tells us most important is his family, he takes time out to enjoy life with them because they are the reason he hustles so much. You can he is really motivated as this year he is involved in the Wu-Block album, World Most Hardest Emcee, a project with Diamond Clothing Company, working on a second book, if they don't get the LOX paperwork figured out they will release a LOX Mixtape. Believe it or not Styles has been rapping since 1995, he shares with us the advice on what has given him longetivity in this career. Check this out and more in our interview with Styles P.

It was such a pleasure to interview Styles P, 1/3 of the Lox and member of D Block. We interviewed Styles P when he was touring Canada with Sheek Louch. Since Styles hasn't been in Canada since 1996 I asked him about the Canadian tour, his book invincible, and how he connected with Curren$y for their EP #The1st28. If you remember our interview with Curren$y he told us he couldn't go more than an hour with lighting another joint, so naturally I ask to ask Styles P about his habits as well.
