yelawolf till its gone

It’s been four months since Yelawolf released “Till It’s Gone” and there’s still no sign of his sophomore album, Love Story. Just to make the wait even more painful for his fans, the Shady Records MC recently teamed up with a few famous friends for an acoustic rendition of his latest single.

“Travis Barker, Bones Owens, DJ Klever and myself just got together before our show at the House of Blues in Hollywood and jammed backstage,” Yela explains. “Someone shouted that we should record it so we set up some cameras and recorded the acoustic version of ‘Till It’s Gone’… just four friends chillin.'”

While the world mourned the tragic loss of A$AP Yams yesterday, A$AP Ferg soldiered on with YG as their Best Coast Connection tour made a stop at The Fillmore Silver Spring in Maryland last night. During his solo set, Ferg called for a moment of silence in memory of the beloved A$AP Mob founder. “If Yams was here partying with us right now, he might have told you he fucked your bitch,” Ferg joked. It’s funny because it’s probably true.
