The fact that Yelawolf is headlining the Mainroom this Wednesday after opening for Wiz Khalifa's sold-out show in the same spot a mere five months prior ought to be evidence enough of the Alabama rapper's rising star, but the only way to really appreciate why he deserves the hype is to see him live. The tatted-up skater with a trailer-park twang and a love for his Chevy could easily rely on his dirtbag charm and smooth vocals alone to garner attention, but his fame has been built primarily on solid rap ability and a powerful stage show. With Prof and Muja Messiah. 18+.
