With a rap career that spans more than a decade and includes collaborative work with hip-hop heavyweights like Eminem, Bun B, and Juicy J, Yelawolf has built his Slumerican brand and earned success by staying true to his core and telling it straight, no chaser. But even with his candid lyricism, there's still a lot more to learn about the Southern artist and entrepreneur. Fans get that and more with his new original series, Yelawolf: A Slumerican Life.

The 10-part documentary series—which arrives today on Crackle in partnership with Complex Networks and Screen Media—follows the Gadsden, Alabama representative as he travels across the country to meet, experience, and appreciate the people and places that align with the Slumerican lifestyle.

In the first episode of the series, Yelawolf and crew hit New Orleans, a place he describes as his favorite city. There, they make a connection with Shaky, a local who's lived his whole life near the swamps and who shows the guys what that's like. "That's my favorite kind of people, and that's who I like to kick it with, because they don't give a fuck," Yelawolf explains. "He was happy just where he was at, that's all he need in life."

Later, they visit Preservation Hall in the French Quarter in preparation for Yelawolf's performance, where they receive a breakdown of its rich history. "I felt extremely fortunate. And unworthy, honestly," he says. "But, it was just meant for me. It was my time."
