For many recording artists on the rise, the path to success is so long and winding that they start to feel like kids on a cross-country road trip. Multi-talented reader fave Jared Evan is evidently getting a little restless, as his latest feature finds him leaning over to ask the driver, “Are We Almost There Yet?” Single numero uno off his forthcoming collaborative album with Statik Selektah, this joint is an impatient, yet upbeat meditation on the hustle. The Boston DJ/producer gorgeous soul samples set the mood as Evan revisits his career’s ups and downs to date, and looks forward to taking his hustle to the next level. Featuring guest appearances from Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson, Hoodie Allen and more, Boom Bap & Blues is scheduled to hit The DJBooth for free streaming and digital purchase February 26.
