Yelawolf has been relatively M-I-A since his sophomore studio album, Love Story, dropped back in April.

Instead of rummaging through one of the album’s eightteen records for additional airwave time, he chose to insert himself back into the media in the most controversial way he could think of.

More than a year and a half ago, Yelawolf showed his rebel side by caping for the rebel Confederate Flag and its perceived values for his Southern heritage.

Without warning, yesterday, August 25, he did it again in an unprovoked on his Instagram account

Ain’t no way I’m letting some ones ignorance tear me from my roots .. you fucking f*ck boys can save it with this anti Dixie SH*T !! .. You media succubus in fashion and news are taking full advantage of yourself’s business .. Not knowing at all the damage you’re creating by giving a false impression of who we are in the South .. We’re GOOD PEOPLE !!! .. We love our small towns and we love our folks .. For me and me only I’ll tell you like this … Rip DIME BAG DARRELL !! and Long live PANTERA !! .. Long live Lynyrd Skynyrd !!… Long Live Dukes of Hazard . .And mother F*CKER … The DIXIE WILL NEVER DIE !! … Do you want Me to mention my black inspirations on the Dixie side .. like Big Gipp who I saw in a full Dixie Flag outfit at Madison Square Garden in 05 ? , or Andre 3000 rocking a Dixie Flag Belt buckle in ” Sorry ms Jackson ? ” , maybe little Jhon or Pastor Troy who rocked the Dixie Flag in a protest against ignorance ? … I saw the GROWTH and the POWER !! NOT THE DEMISE !!! And here we have these fucking yuppies from the west coast and world wide jumping on this band wagon .. Who know NOTHING ABOUT US .. Other than the movies and misrepresented news reels they see .. Lied too at school and at home .. Further deepening the injury of social perception .. With this wack ass image of a burning Dixie Flag …. F*ck that !! … Well I can tell you that a #slumerican will never support you .. We’re beyond you all .. More open and way more prepared than you are

⚡⚡⚡⚡DIXIE !!! #slumerican

For the record, Dylann Roof was from a small town, and he used the Confederate Flag’s Civil Rights symbolism to fuel his hate-filled killing spree. However, as long as you use it for good, Yela, the battle between good and evil will continue to balance itself out. Or something like that.
