Although the prominent age of Boom Bap is now overshadowed by electro beats and radio ready production, the subgenre is far from dead.  Statik Selektah is by no means a “Boom Bap” producer, but his versatility sheds light on the masked style.  Jared Evan sings from his soul.  He raps from his soul.  That’s his style.   Collectively, the duo have collaborated on their joint LP, Boom Bap & Blues.  Together they have resonated a combination of genre’s that mainstream music is missing.  

There’s no question the features will catch your eye (Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson, Lil Fame, Termanology…), but Jared’s versatility alone is worthy of repeated play.  Props to you Mr. Evan and Mr. Selektah, this is one hell of a project.

Hip-Hop, Pop | Jared Evan – Are We Almost There Yet? (Prod. by Statik Selektah)

jared evan are we almost there yet freshnewtracks

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”



Hip-Hop, Pop | Jared Evan – Letters [Music Video]

In a saturated digital age, we sometimes forget the power of pen on papyrus.  In his heartwarming track off his 2012 EP, The 4th Chapter, the NYC native Jared Evan pours his heart onto the paper illustrating his emotions in the form of “Letters”.  Coming clean through his gravitating vocals, the multi talented musician reminds us he is a rapper at heart, dropping the third verse in rap form, reiterating his feelings through his newly scripted letters.

There’s a lot on the horizon for Jared.  I can tell you for certain he has a joint project on the way with Statik Selektah titled “Boom Bap & Blues” along with some collaborative work with Hoodie Allen and likely another original, solo project.
