Yelawolf has long aspired to "arena rap" that mixes hard rock with Dirty South rap, and he finally gets his chance with Radioactive. Indeed, this is the only time you'll hear Three 6 Mafia affiliate Gangsta Boo and Kid Rock on the same record. Eminem ("Throw It Up"), a post-incarceration Mystikal ("Get Away") and Fefe Dobson ("Animal") appear, too, but no matter how many features, it still comes down to the songs. For that matter, most of Radioactive is crack-rock solid, but a few, like "Everything I Love the Most," overreach for mainstream acceptance.
