Jared Evan "Pieces EP"
Last year we came together with Jared Evan and Karmaloop to bring you his EP, The Fourth Chapter. In 2013, Jared Evan hit us with Boom Bap & Blues in the spring and has now is returning with his next project, the Pieces EP. Jared has been hush-hush so far on this project, as we have yet to hear anything from it, which for me actually builds more anticipation for it knowing I haven’t been able to hear anything. Pieces is set to contain production from Evan himself, !llmind, Arcitype, and Illfactor as well as one guest feature in the form of Chiddy Bang. Pieces is set to hit the ‘net on November 19.
