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 PURPLEVILLAIN, EVOLVE 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.
