This collaboration caught me off guard and I’m sure I’m not the only one but upon further consideration that notion is pretty ridiculous considering we’re dealing with “The Hardest Ginger Pon Road” and “Catfish Billy” themselves. Alabama’s son meets England’s favourite Red Head for the Slumdon Bridge EP. Right off the bat we can hear Yelawolf’s southern twang laying an engaging story on the first track London Bridge and he maintains a calm and collected flow throughout the EP so not to clash with Ed Sheeran’s smooth vocals. Ed sounds typically terrific on this EP, he could be named the definition of consistency with his vocals and he blends very well with Yelawolf’s slightly more in your face style. The production is nice and moody but not too bogged down or slow and keeps a nice pace with songs like You Don’t Know and Faces. It’s nice to see Ed continuing to collaborate with rappers as his collaborations with Daggenham’s young General, Devlin, were something to behold and this EP is keeping in step with that. It’s only 4 songs so if you have a spare half an hour or so check out The Slumdon Bridge EP by Yelawolf and Ed Sheeran and I guarantee it will end up on repeat.
