One of my favorite up and coming hybrid artists, Jared Evan, shares the first cut off his collaborated project with producer Statik Selektah.  At only 23, the NY native has had an adventurous career, initially signing with Interscope, having his music featured in TV spots, to releasing several solo projects and now working on a collaborative effort with one of the game’s most respected producers.  With the title of the upcoming project, Boom Bap & Blues, Statik cooks up a beat driven by a heavy bass line, snare kicks and smooth keys as Jared soulfully sings his first verse before bursting into a secondary rap verse.  Asking the seamlessly daunting question, “Are we almost there yet?”

“Statik play the record so they hear what I say, I’m from New York but I’m headed west no Kanye,
With a back pack if my fans talk then I chat back and I bogart like the rat pack”
