Singer/rapper Jared Evan comes out of the blue with the new free album The Art Form of Whatever. With production by !llmind, The Arcitype, Rain, Lightfoot and the artist, the 10-track collection takes listeners across several musical planes. The New York native got additional musical assistance via guest features from MAX, Skyzoo, Stella, Reks, and Moe Pope.
The Art Form of Whatever follows Evan’s previous EPs The 4th Chapter and Pieces. He also teamed with Statik Selektah for the collaborative projects Boom Bap & Blues and Boom Bap & Blues 2. The new LP can be downloaded at www.jaredevan.com.
Jared describes The Art Form of Whatever:
Towards the end of the tour, I thought about putting together some sort of free album or “mixtape” while my fans wait for my debut full length. I wanted it to be a project that showed a different side of me, something bold. So on my flight back to New York I started conceptualizing what the project could be like. I wrote down titles on my laptop, and one of them really stuck out to me – “The Art Form of Whatever.” I started geeking off of the title and then knew exactly what I wanted it to be.
When I landed, it just so happened my dude Arcitype texted me asking if I’d come to Boston and work for a few days. It couldn’t have been better timing. I went to Boston and in literally 4 days created 10 songs from scratch. I’ve never been more proud of a project. It went from my brain to reality in the span of a few days. I really dug inside my creative chest for this one. I even painted the album art myself.
