if you're cruisin', I got that trunk muzik

Yelawolf's Trunk Muzik tape is the first of hopefully many good rap tapes that I've come across in 2010. Wolf's White Rapper-ness is quite noteworthy and interesting (and Brandon Soderberg has already written something noteworthy and interesting about it), and but it's far from the only reason that Trunk Muzik is worth your time. When I first heard Yelawolf on Juelz' "Mixin' Up the Medicine" the voice grated a little, but that's gone away almost completely. Turns out he's sneakily charismatic, whether he's whispering, flowing double time, or singing. The Bun B and Raekwon songs on the tape are great, but this sinister storytelling joint is my favorite right now.

Big things continuing to flow from Alabama in 2010 if this start is any indication.
