Shady Records rapper Yelawolf briefly discusses what it was like recording the theme song Adult Swim’s “Squidbillies” television show.
For those of you not familiar with Squidbillies, it is an extremely successful animated series on Adult Swim revolving around an impoverished family of anthropomorphic hillbilly squids living in the Appalachian region of Georgia’s mountains. The show debuted back in October of 2005, and is currently in the seventh season.
The show has recently tapped that the talents of Catfish Billy, aka Yelawolf, to record the theme song for series. Yela lets fans know how the partnership came to fruition, along with his favorite verse from the upcoming song.
“Squidbillies crew hit me up for a new theme song for the show. They give me some pointers for some things they would like to hear; About the sun disappearing, and taking everybody out. My favorite line in this record is ‘Jumping over barb wires naked don’t tickle’” Yelawolf explained.
