Statement Raps :: Evolve’s ‘I AM LYRICIST/SWOLLEN PENS’

We were less than an hour into 2015 when Evolve unleashed a megablast.  Terms like ‘Album Of The Year’ normally shouldn’t be thrown around before I’ve had my first lunch of the new year, but I AM LYRICIST/SWOLLEN PENS will definitely be in the argument come December 2015.  Evolve has never been a slouch with the bars or the beat selection, and this album is a giant step in his current trajectory.  Featuring a who’s who of production credits, including Maker, Progeny, and the almighty KRS-ONE, plus a dope cover from the homie AWOL-ONE, don’t front on this album.

The Metropolis:
Metropolis is a really cool apartment complex in the East Riverside neighborhood of Austin. They cater to musicians and artist types and provide a chill atmosphere for people to live, create, and party. The show is in the center of the complex, where there is a pool and volleyball court. The pool area has a stage and some BBQ pits as well. The 2nd stage will be on the other side of the building, in a roped off parking lot. The volleyball court becomes our graffiti exhibition area.

THE PEOPLE OF METROPOLIS ARE KIND ENOUGH TO LET US DO THIS, SO PLEASE RESPECT THE PROPERTY AND DO NOT VANDALIZE ANYTHING. NO GLASS CONTAINERS ALLOWED.
