Rock "N" Roll Halloween: Yelawolf & DJ Paul - "Black Fall EP" (Shady Aftermath)

Just in time for All Hallow's Eve, Yelawolf & DJ Paul unleashed a 5-track FreEP, Black Fall late Wednesday night. The former Three 6 Mafia producer crafted some pretty sinister-sounding beats using primarily Rock & Metal samples; so far, I've heard Metallica, Pink Floyd, Muse, Michael Jackson, and Black Sabbath (Dio). I never really used to like Yelawolf's hillbilly-tinged brand of Southern Hip-Hop, until I heard his genre-blending collaboration with singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, The Slumdon Bridge EP. It's a truly timeless Alt. Hip-Hop EP that I would've gladly paid good money for and I guess Travis Barker & Eminem's separate Yelawolf co-signs didn't hurt either. Leaked pre-release single "Light Switch" expertly manages to sample English Prog-Rock band Muse's radio-friendly hit "Uprising," while elsewhere, "Thriller" and Pink Floyd are sampled on one track. Yelawolf & DJ Paul previously worked together on "Go Hard," a track pulled from the recent Juicy J-less Three 6 Mafia Da Mafia 6ix "reunion album," 6ix Commandments (which may or may not have been released on 10/29). Have a safe and Happy Halloween Weekend, my friends... download a copy of Black Fall EP, and let it be the soundtrack to your ghoulish festivities!
