Driver: San Francisco gets a music video by Yelawolf

8:00 PM on 08.29.2011 // Liam Fisher

Wait, what the f*ck is a Yelawolf?

...

Ok, it seems Yelawolf is a white rapper from Alabama who is on the verge of releasing his first major-label produced album. This is quite different from my initial assumption that he was actually a cowardly wolf from Alabama. At least I got one part right.

The music video for the rapper's new single "No Hands" was inspired by Driver: San Francisco and Mr. Wolf himself seems to feel a connection to the game's protagonist, John Tanner.

Yelawolf states: “My aggression on the record matches perfectly with the attitude of the game’s main character, Tanner. So when Ubisoft approached me with the opportunity to work together on the video, it made all the sense in the world to find a creative way to pair the song and game together.”

I'll say this, he's both aggressive and tenacious. There is also the constant presence of the game's cover car, a yellow Dodge Challenger, which Yelawolf attributes to his love for old-school muscle cars.

He's standing on top of one hundred grand. In my opinion, that's a weird thing to do with your money. However, if you think he cares about you, he doesn't; not at all. Sounds like John Tanner to me.
