SOMETIMES Y (YELAWOLF & SHOOTER JENNINGS) - ROCK & ROLL BABY

It’s interesting to see Yelawolf in a light where he brings more pure rock into a song. While he does have some great down beat tracks, they typically lean more on the vocal lines he raps. What I really enjoyed about “Rock & Roll Baby” is the way Yelawolf took his down beat soul like rock vocals and intertwined them with the twangy electric guitar of Shooter Jennings. As far as the music video goes, I think the music really complimented the message that was being conveyed throughout this video. The narrative of a son watching his mom trying to live out her version of a "rock & roll dream", while at the same time placing both in a scary situations, was captured perfectly and highlights the power (and pain) of this song. The other side of the video where Yelawolf and Jennings are performing outside of the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas was a great contrasting element and one I think pulled everything together as the video concluded. Overall, I really enjoyed "Rock & Roll Baby" and it's accompanying music video. Different for Yelawolf but I liked it, and am sure you will to!
