The Slumamerican founder and global recording artist returns to Australia this January

MELBOURNE, AU (Nov 29, 2019) – Continuing his hugely successful U.S. tour with packed venues and sold out shows, American rapper YELAWOLF announces he is returning to Australia in January 2020 to perform three shows along the East Coast starting at Sydney’s Max Watts on January 7, Brisbane’s 256 Wickham on January 8 and at Melbourne’s 170 Russell on January 9.

The artist, songwriter and entrepreneur released his new album ‘Ghetto Cowboy’, on Nov. 1, premiering exclusively to fans on Halloween night via YouTube. The sixth studio album from the rapper is the first to drop on his own independent label Slumerican Records, an extension of his lifestyle brand with retail headquarters based in Nashville, TN.

The highly anticipated project features single releases ‘Opie Taylor’ and ‘Unnatural Born Killer,’ which have been getting a warm reception with New Music Friday placements and playlist support from Spotify, Tidal, Amazon, and across iHeartRadio. Wolf also has a fan in pro athlete LeBron James who recently posted he "can't wait for the album to drop."

This has been a banner year for Wolf’s endeavours, both as an artist and entrepreneur. Not only is Ghetto Cowboy his second album in 2019 - following up his critically acclaimed “Trunk Muzik 3” released with Shady Records – he also made his cinematic debut this summer in the beloved award-winning movie, “The Peanut Butter Falcon”. Honoured to play a part, he was cast by the director who wrote the role specifically with him in mind.

Speaking about the album Wolf says, “This Ghetto Cowboy album has been the most gratifying to me as an artist being that it’s my first indie release on my own label. I have no one to answer to and that can be a scary responsibility. After Love Story, Trial By Fire and then Trunk Muzik 3, I feel like I got a well-rounded project that speaks to all the fans; hip hop, rock’n’roll, and southern fans alike. I ain’t reinventing the wheel here, just doing what I love to do, doing what I think is dope and original. I never want to stop challenging the genre or the listener or become complacent or settled cause that’s boring as f_<# to me and the fans. G.C. is unapologetic, brutally honest and at times completely vulnerable. I leave it all out there. Take it or leave it.”
