JARED EVAN X STATIK SELEKTAH – BOOM BAP & BLUES

Relative newcomer Jared Evan teams up with legendary New York DJ/Producer Statik Selektah for his laid-back album debut.  It would be so easy to dismiss Evans as another wannabe Justin Timberlake, flirting with Hip Hop for popular appeal.  However, a combination of Evans’ lyrics, clever sampling, guest artists (Joey Bada$$ and Action Bronson included) reveal that this is actually a celebration of the genre, music in general, and the state of New York.  Stream below via SoundCloud.
