UPDATE: 13 Oct 22
YelaWolf Update: We always add some good news to the bad… bare with us: The last few days have been hectic trying to pull a miracle for Caskey and DJ Paul to get here but due to delays in passport processing etc we just couldn’t pull it off in time. We are very fortunate that Yelawolf has landed and has offered us an extended set to help ease the pain, you’re now gonna see MORE Yela which means more variety of your favourite tunes. Caskey has been a legend and committed to coming down here for intimate shows before the end of the year in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch. You’re still gonna see Caskey this year and we are gonna hook you up! Yela has bought two special guests: TWO LANE and DJ DEVIN HYPE who will now also fill those opening slots. Apologies for any inconvenience and we hope to still see you this weekend.
Don’t miss Yelawolf returning to New Zealand with special guests: Caskey & DJ Paul.

In his early years, Yelawolf released his first independent album Creek Water, which was released in 2005. During 2005 to 2010, he released one extended play and four mix-tapes.

In January 2011, Yelawolf signed a recording contract to Eminem's record label, Shady Records, and released his major-label debut album, Radioactive on November 21, 2011. The album debuted at number 27 on the Billboard 200. Yelawolf released a sequel to his breakthrough mixtape Trunk Muzik, titled Trunk Muzik Returns on March 14, 2013.
