Diversity Training :: Evolves Showcases His Creative Range Via ‘Miscellaneous’

Nod Factor :: EVOLVE X Mic Melt X DJ EZ Dave’s ‘The NNY EP (The Brooklyn Sessions)’ Hits The Internet

EVOLVE is well known for keeping his raps and track selections ultra raw, and while I don’t want to speak on behalf of the man, I imagine that much of this ethos comes from a deep appreciation of New York‘s creation and eternal influence on the hip-hop culture.  The main reason I feel comfortable in making this assumption and asserting it publicly is due to EVOLVE X MIC MELT X DJ EZ DAVE PRESENT: THE NNY EP​(​THE BROOKLYN SESSIONS), the latest release from the always working EVOLVE.  With verbal assistance from Mic MeltBanga KJunclassic, CHGPitch Black and Aimss, production provided by Stellar BornDeep of 2HBThe Strangers and DJ EZ Dave (who also provides the cuts), this is an all-star effort that goes seven for seven in terms of bangers.  Peep this one asap, share it around, and if you can, thrown EVOLVE and company a few bucks to cop this one.

Coping Mechanisms :: PURPLEVILLAIN X EVOLVE Release ‘MAN – MADE MESS’

I’ve been a fan, peer and friend of EVOLVE for quite a few years now, and usually I’ve been able to witness his wins, ascension in the underground rap world, and collaborations with a number of MCs.  As a friend, however, I’ve also seen the rough times, and I know that 2020 took a much heavier toll on EVOLVE outside of the normal pain it gave us.  With the help of PURPLEVILLAINEVOLVE has been able to turn his painful journey into a deeply introspective and openly moving collection of songs titled MAN – MADE MESS.  While EVOLVE is usually known for clever wordplay and in-your-face, aggressive raps, but hearing him be so open and honest really works.  If you’re familiar with EVOLVE‘s work and are looking for a different shade in the spectrum, or you’re looking for a rare glimpse into what makes him tick as an individual, then don’t sleep on MAN – MADE MESS.
