Jared Evan’s Joey BadA$$-assisted single, Black and White, is a little like, well, black and white. Both are polar opposites, but when they’re fused together nothing looks (sounds) better. Evan displays soft, vulnerable vocals, splashed with just a touch of R&B, while BadA$$, who was recently named the Creative Director of Ecko Unltd (at just 18!), has a very grimy style, but alongside one another they sound like a match made in musical heaven. Of course it probably doesn’t hurt to have a supremely dope, vintage beat from Statik Selektah boom-bapping in the background. Want more? Of course you do. Evan’s Boom Bap & Blues LP, produced entirely by Statik Selektah, is now available on iTunes. Should you need more convincing, feel free to stream the album right here at The DJBooth.
