Shady Records rapper Yelawolf is originally from Gadsden, Alabama and fully supports a very controversial (and rather outdated) symbol of the South - the Confederate Flag. And Eminem's "Best Friend" won't let any West Coast "haters" stomp all over his southern pride and roots...

On Monday (August 24), the Love Story emcee went on this shocking Facebook (and Instagram) rant:

 Ain't no way I'm letting some ones ignorance tear me from my roots... you f*cking fuck boys can save it with this anti Dixie SH*T!! You media succubus in fashion and news are taking full advantage of yourself's business... Not knowing at all the damage you're creating by giving a false impression of who we are in the South... We're GOOD PEOPLE!!! We love our small towns and we love our folks... For me and me only I'll tell you like this... Rip DIME BAG DARRELL!! And long live PANTERA!! Long live Lynyrd Skynyrd!! Long Live Dukes of Hazard... And mother F*CKER... The DIXIE WILL NEVER DIE!! Do you want me to mention my black inspirations on the Dixie side... like Big Gipp who I saw in a full Dixie Flag outfit at Madison Square Garden in 05? Or Andre 3000 rocking a Dixie Flag Belt buckle in "Sorry ms Jackson?" Maybe Little John or Pastor Troy who rocked the Dixie Flag in a protest against ignorance? I saw the GROWTH and the POWER!! NOT THE DEMISE!!! And here we have these f*cking yuppies from the west coast and world wide jumping on this band wagon... Who know NOTHING ABOUT US... Other than the movies and misrepresented news reels they see... Lied to at school and at home... Further deepening the injury of social perception... With this wack a$$ image of a burning Dixie Flag... F*ck that!! Well I can tell you that a #slumerican will never support you... We're beyond you all... More open and way more prepared than you are DIXIE!!! @savetheconfederateflag #slumerican

The epic post is still live on social media, and vicious fan backlash continues. However, Yelawolf's vulgar support of #Slumerica has already garnered more than 6,400 "likes" and counting on just Facebook alone. So what do MstarsNews readers think? Despite such negativity, the 35-year-old mixtape master just won't stop:

Will the infamous "Rap God" now respond?
