I’ve got good news and bad news for y’all. The good news is, Jared Evan and Statik Selektah have stepped into the Booth with a fresh collaborative record. The bad news is the song itself—as in, its title is actually “Bad News.” So, really, I was f*cking with you and it’s all good news. A bonus track off the iTunes version of their collaborative debut, this smoky, soulful number finds the unsigned singer, songwriter and producer lamenting the spell a certain shawty has him under. As the freestyle series alum explains over his partner’s vibraphone-laced sample work, he knows she’ll only lead him into ruin, but still he can’t seem to stay away. Like what you’re hearing? Then click here to cop the record, along with the rest of Evan and Statik’s Boom Bap & Blues LP, via iTunes. The original version of the set is still available for streaming in The DJBooth.
