Yelawolf has officially brought his April onslaught to a close with the release of his new studio album Mud Mouth, a fourteen-track effort featuring production across the board from longtime collaborator Jim Jonsin. And while there is much to unpack on this one, which finds Yelawolf returning to his melodic songwriting approach after three projects worth of bars, there's something about hearing him spaz over hard-hitting production that remains wholeheartedly enjoyable.
As such, the simplistic yet effective "Bounce" is an easy Mud Mouth standout, at least in these early stages. Showcasing the dexterous flow that landed him a spot on "Worldwide Choppers," Yela navigates the synthesizers without breaking a sweat. "Back up on the porch in a rocking chair, with no activist, a full cup of codeine," he spits. "Poppin' up with these copper bars / I got enough trouble just throwin' down the old me." Though it's not exactly the deepest Mud Mouth cut, it's one that highlights his instinctual flair for Trunk Muzik, which remains a potent arm in his arsenal to this day.
