Rapper Yelawolf Wants To Collaborate With Miranda Lambert: “Think I Can Convince Her To Drop A Rap Record?!”

What a duo this would be.

Miranda Lambert was in LA over the weekend to be part of Willie Nelson’s massive 90th birthday celebration at the Hollywood Bowl, where she performed his classic hit with Waylon Jennings, “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys.”

And it sounds like she ran into rapper Yelawolf at the Sunset Marquis hotel in West Hollywood, as he shared a couple photos of them together on Instagram, adding that they were “first cousins” from a “far off planet called trailer park rich.”

He also said he loved her immediately, asking fans if they’d want to hear them collaborate on something… he even asked if they thought he could convince her to drop a rap record:

“That time at the Sunset Marquis I met Miranda Lambert and discovered we were first cousins from some far off planet called tray’luh’park’rich!

Love this girl immediately in that Alabama type of way haha… who would like to hear some music from the two of us?

Think I can convince her to drop a rap record? You should hear a rap name… it’s too good to post.”

I can only hope we get to find out what her rap name is one day…

And I don’t know how serious he is about really working with her, because it would obviously be way out of either one of their respective wheelhouses, but it would certainly be very interesting, to say the least.

Yelawolf, whose real name is Michael Wayne Atha, is an Alabama native and refers to his own musical stylings as “southern rap.” He’s also friends with Nashville native Jelly Roll and will be opening for him on his upcoming 44-city headlining Backroad Baptism arena tour.

We also know Miranda has been writing with Jelly Roll more recently, so who knows, maybe it could really happen and they could put out a song or something together one day.

Consider me at least intrigued right now, for lack of a better word.

Stay tuned…
