Everything that fans love about Yelawolf has been culminated into one incredible EP titled, Hotel. From just seven tracks, fans will be able to take a look into his past, present and future.

By now, fans are used to the mashup of country and hip-hop that Yelawolf is proud of.

The Hotel intro titled, "Supersonic Alley Cat" fools fans as it seems as if it it's going to be a straight instrumental.

However, the final minute features Yelawolf rattling off a "supersonic" series of lyrics that gets you pumped for every track to follow.

"You Should Have Known" is a mixture between a love song and a raw sexually driven song.

It features a low bassline that opens up into a fusion of country and hip-hop arrangements.

"Renegades" is the triple threat track that finds Yelawolf reflecting on his past, how he intends to grow in the future all while celebrating every type of American that exists, no matter what your financial situation may be.

"Someday" is one of the big standout tracks for Yelawolf as he seems agressive and hungry to continue to have his story heard. "In Love Tonight" and "Good Love" resemble each other in terms of subject matter, however, they are complete opposites in terms of the arrangement.

The Hotel EP also features Bubba Sparxxx who dives into the subject of realness.

Yelawolf's Hotel is actually an acronym for House Of The Endless Life which seems to represent the overall circle of life we all live in.

You can stream the entire project below and stay tuned as Yelawolf announced he is ready to start making his next album.

It's been a crazy week. So much energy around me at all times. I've found peace and quite for most of my life at grave yards .. My Maw Maw used to take me .. We would just walk around and read stones ... I write a lot of records here .. Today I wrote a record for @leebrice and I here .. Called "Violin" ... We're supposed to be in the studio this evening .. Time to push all aside and get these ideas recorded .. Songs are like a passing speck of dust in the wind ... If you don't grab it and contain it .. It'll be gone forever. With all my growth .. I can say returning to my roots has been the greatest blessing. Sharing that with what hip hop brought to my life ... I'm forever grateful .. " Trial By Fire " will be the title for my next album ... Sharing this with you all today ... Right now .... Cause who knows really ... But I'm mentally ready to begin the next album ... And the journey starts today. @shadyrecords INTERSCOPE #slumerican @fefedobsonofficial @kleversworld @bonesowens @spidysmith @jdotjones @rosenberg
