When asked about comparisons to MGK during a recent Shade 45 interview:
â€œWho?â€ â€œItâ€™s probably the most insulting thing on the planet, to be asked to sign a Machine Gun Kelly autograph. â€˜Yo MGK?â€™ Iâ€™m like â€˜Yea, motherf***er. Let me sign your Birkenstocks.â€™â€
Yelawolf also took the opportunity to express his frustration for his label for the lack of support for Radioactive.
â€œIâ€™m all about figuring sh** out, for myself and my art. My last project, Radioactive, was deliberately given to Interscope â€¦ and it was on a f***ing silver platter, given to them to work,â€ he explained to Rude Jude. â€œIt was radio records after radio records, purposely, was my attempt. These motherf***ers have given me one single in 11 months. I donâ€™t really understand where the importance is lined. Thatâ€™s just me being real, every artist gets frustrated at some point, I imagine.
â€œI fully comprised, but I let everybody know, even prior to doing Radioactive, what I was doing. I was being honest with my fans,â€ Yelawolf continued. â€œI was like â€˜Yea, Iâ€™m letting people in. Weâ€™re gonna so something more melodic.â€™ The albumâ€™s called â€˜Radioactiveâ€™ â€” to be â€˜activeâ€™ on â€˜radioâ€™. Like, it was a purposeful shot for me, because I felt like I had a window to use. Like, I could gain â€¦ pull some people in with this sh**. I donâ€™t know what the f*** theyâ€™re doing up there. Shadyâ€™s great, I love Shady Records. I just think thereâ€™s some sh** going on upstairs.â€
