"Hard White (Up In the Club)" is the lead single from Yelawolf's debut studio album Radioactive. The song features a chorus by fellow rapper Lil Jon. The song was leaked just days before the official release. Though it was released officially on August 8, 2011 the song was available on Yelawolf's official website.
The first single of Radioactive was supposed to be "Gangsta of Love" which featured an outro speech by Cyhi Da Prynce and production from Jim Jonsin, but was not officially released by Yelawolf because it was leaked. On July 7, Yelawolf announced that the song would not make the final cut on the album.
The music video for the song was directed by Motion Family, filmed in Atlanta, Georgia at 1260 Custer Avenue during August 26. On September 20 it was released through VEVO. Fellow rappers Rittz, Shawty Fatt and Trouble make cameo appearances in the music video.
