Summary: Boom Bap Blues

About Artist: I don’t know anything about Jared Evan except that he’s from New York and signed to Interscope. Wais P is an old school New York rapper who been struggling against obscurity despite having been featured on Jay-Z’s Vol. 2 Hard Knock Life back in 1998. Statik Selektah is a Boston based producer who I’m a big fan of.

About Song: This song is from back in feb 2013 from the mixtape/album Boom Bap Blues, which was a collaboration project between Jared and producer Statik Selektah. I posted 2 other songs from the album back in 2013 here and here. Apparently there is a Boom Bap and Blues 2 (Still Blue) album that came out in 2014 (which I’m gonna go listen to right now)!

Favorite Part: I really love this whole album, very chill, very nice blending of sounds and styles

Jared Evan – Pro Create (ft. Action Bronson)

Summary: A little friday afternoon slow jam about love and sensuality. Lets make some music.
About Artist: (copied from a previous post I don’t know much about Jared Evan. I’d never heard of him before but apparently he’s a singer/songwriter from New York. Apparently his debut EP The 4th Chapter came out in 2012 and is definitely something I’m gonna go check out. You can read Jared Evan’s Wikipedia article here for more info. Lil Fame is half of the longtime famed hip hop duo M.O.P. who have been making music since the mid 90s. Statik Selektah is one of my favorite producers. The musicality and vibe he brings to his music really matches my taste and I always try to check out projects he’s been involved in. Check out more Statik Selektah from gregshiphop (mainly from this EP 1982 that I was obsessed with for a bit).
About Song:  This song was one of the singles from the just released collaboration album between Statik Selektah and Jared Evan titled Boom Bap & Blues.
Favorite Part:
I really like the chorus, especially at the little breakdown parts like
“We could put it all on tape, right here
Why don’t we just procreate, what we hear”
(at 0:52)

I also really like the second verse starting with
“put the plug in the socket,
you know I’m gonna rock it,
lets level out this EQ…”
(1:39)

Summary:  A little jazzy hip hop / R&B.

About Song: This song was one of the singles from the just released collaboration album between Statik Selektah and Jared Evan titled Boom Bap & Blues. I can’t say enough about this LP. I would post almost every track from the LP on this blog, in fact I just might. You can listen to the entire album on Jared Evan’s official website and on soundcloud (links at the bottom of the post).
Favorite Part:
I LOVE STATIK SLEKTAH’S SOUND! The soulfulness, jazzy old school kinda sound just sounds soooo nice. If you like this track at all you NEED to check out the rest of Boom Bap & Blues.
I’ve really been into music like this and Jose James, and the Robert Glasper’s Black Radio, so check those two out if you like this kinda music.

1982 – Money Is Reality

February 21st, 2011

1982-MoneyIsReality
DOWNLOAD MP3 1982-MoneyIsReality.mp3
Summary: Some Chill Monday Rap. For Classic Hip Hop Lovers only.
About Artist: 1982 is a two man MC Rapper duo out of the Boston area. The MC, Statik Selektah, has worked mainly on radio stations throughout his career and has the classic turntable sound I love exemplified by DJ Premier and Funkmaster Flex. Statik Selektah really brings the sound and vibe to the group, which is the main reason I like them, so I’d say he’s what really makes the group special. The rapper, Termanology, also from the Boston area, looked like he would take off in 2005 when The Source featured him as an unsigned MC; he never really took off but he’s got more than enough talent to hold his own in the game.
About Song: This song is off of 1982’s recent EP the Evening News. This song features Action Bronson though I’ve never heard of him. I like this song because it mixes a laid back jazz sound with a traditional gritty city rap sound.
Favorite Part:
I really like the classic hip hop feel. The best verse is probably the first 0:42-1:30 but the second verse does have some real good flow.

Together they have one album titled
1982″ but have several other projects including their free mixtape 1982: The EP
About Song: this song is off their recent EP
the Evening News. I look forward to many more quality projects from them in the future. Also the track I believe samples Wu Tang Clan’s clssic C.R.E.A.M.
Favorite Part: I love the track especially with the scratches. The rap through the whole thing just has such a classic feel.
Favorite Line: “…I stole that line from Joey Crack cause I thought that flow was fat, what happened to rap I’m confused someonebring it back” (0:43) I like the rythem of that line and again with the old school classic feel
