Yelawolf

Though most know the uber-tattooed Alabama-bred MC as Eminem's protégé, Yelawolf is one of few rappers to have dabbled in reality TV -- he competed on Missy Elliott's 2005 series, "The Road to Stardom" --  without embarrassing themselves. Early TV roots aside, Yela's live show is worth checking out, even if you didn't purchase his energetic debut, "Radioactive." His fusion of southern rap and rock paired with a venomous, hyperactive flow and tendency to keep the Jack Daniels flowing onstage (and to the crowd) makes for a fun watch.
