Alabama native and rapper, <strong>Yelawolf </strong>has just signed a major deal after being on and gaining much popularity in the underground scene for years. The ink is still drying from recently signing on the dotted line with <strong>Jimmy Iovine</strong>&rsquo;s Interscope Records, the label home of such artists as <strong>Eminem</strong>, <strong>P. Diddy</strong>, and fellow Alabamian, <strong>Rich Boy</strong>.</p><p>Don&rsquo;t let his slim physique, tattooed body, White skin and long hair fool you. Far from a <strong>Kid Rock</strong>, Yelawolf is a lyricist with a sound that is reminiscent of a cross between <strong>Devin the Dude</strong> and <strong>Andre 3000</strong>. The 27-year-old rapper has since collaborated with the likes of <strong>Bizarre</strong> of <strong>D12</strong>, <strong>Bun B</strong>, <strong>Juelz Santana</strong>, <strong>Slim Thug</strong>, and <strong>Raekwon</strong>. &nbsp;Yelawolf has dropped various mixtapes, including his latest, <em><a class="external" rel="nofollow" href="http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LmRqYm9vdGgubmV0L2luZGV4L21peHRhcGVzL2VudHJ5L3llbGF3b2xmLXRydW5rLW11emlr&quot; target="_blank"><span style="color: #78a22f;">Trunk Muzik</span></a>,</em> which has been embraced and acclaimed by fans and listeners alike.</p><p>He will remain with his longtime independent label Ghet-O-Vision Entertainment based in Atlanta, Georgia as he prepares to drop his debut full length studio album under the guidance of Interscope in the near future. The newly signed rapper is currently on a 20 date U.S. tour, opening for <strong>Wiz Khalifa</strong> and is a model for <a href="http://live.drjays.com/index.php/2010/03/30/brand-alert-orisue/&quot; target="_blank"><span style="color: #78a22f;">ORISUE</span></a>.</p><p>All of the above is certainly good news for a man who once worked as a deep sea fisherman in Seattle, Washington and is now Interscope&rsquo;s newest artist and hip hop&rsquo;s newest sensation. This just goes to show that any dream is possible, no matter how far-fetched it may be.</p><p>Check out Yelawolf profess his love for his one true &ldquo;girlfriend,&rdquo; in &ldquo;Box Chevy: &nbsp;Part 2&rdquo;:</p><object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="450" height="385" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="_cx" value="11906" /><param name="_cy" value="10186" /><param name="FlashVars" /><param name="Movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/sRETz7pPPOk&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;rel=0&amp;color1=0x234900&amp;color2=0x4e9e00&quot; /><param name="Src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/sRETz7pPPOk&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;rel=0&amp;color1=0x234900&amp;color2=0x4e9e00&quot; /><param name="WMode" value="Window" /><param name="Play" value="0" /><param name="Loop" value="-1" /><param name="Quality" value=&q
