Yelawolf Releases New Single “Opie Taylor”

Sixth Studio Album GHETTO COWBOY To Drop Halloween Night Via Slumerican Records Currently On Ghetto Cowboy Tour

Alabama rapper YelaWolf released his latest single “Opie Taylor” today, the second song from his upcoming album Ghetto Cowboy being released on Halloween exclusively via his YouTube channel, available everywhere on November 1st.

Wolf shares, “In so many instances, I’ve turned my back on opportunities. Whether it was a major label executive or a hit producer or some job I just couldn’t stand. Opie Taylor’s the reason I’ve never had a hit single or a 401K plan…according to them, that is.

Ghetto Cowboy is his sixth studio album and first to come from his own independent label Slumerican Records, an extension of his lifestyle and culture brand with retail headquarters based in Nashville, TN.

Currently on The Ghetto Cowboy Tour which kicked off earlier this week, Wolf will stop in Los Angeles on October 22 and New York City on November 12. Full tour dates below.

Ghetto Cowboy is available to pre-order now.
