BHB cooks up a swooning beat driven by a muffled sample and some chiming bells. The instrumental’s youthful vibe fits Evans perfectly. As the beat meanders behind him, Evans reflects on his struggle to balance the demands of adulthood with the temptations of partying, ladies and booze.
2nd single off "So Cal Soul" (dropping April 28th).
"The flow mad un-common, but compare me to Lonnie/common scents in the air, but they still smell I'm a problem" - Connor Evans "Winterlude"
"So Cal Soul", releasing April 28th, 2014 for free download, is the follow-up to Evans last album "The Road to Coachella."
"So Cal Soul" features the previously released lead single "Kanye Glasses" and sees Connor Evans delivering a rawer, more soulful Hip-Hop sound. Releasing March 7th, in a unique A-side/B-side release, will be the album's next single "Keys" with the B-side "Winterlude" (heard in the video album teaser).
With news yesterday that the 'Entourage' movie now has a release date (no one talk to me on June 12th, 2015), brokencool thought it would be fun to look back at the music of 'Entourage.' The show was a launching pad for new Hip-Hop music but also a tool to bring back memories of some of that classic Hip-Hop (only now in the context of Turtle driving a limo or Ari yelling at someone). Here are 32 old school Hip-Hop artists that have appeared (musically) on 'Entourage.'
Don't look now, but on the weekend Drake sold-out his 5th Annual OVO Fest in seconds (and tickets are already going for big money on the secondary market)...oh, this happened before too. Fans waited in line to snatch up tickets to the 2-day event featuring Outkast on August 3rd and Drake headlining on August 4th. But how did Drake turn OVO Fest into Hip-Hop's must-see concert?
Today, Connor Evans releases his new single "Kanye Glasses." The song, produced by Connor Evans and BHB, is an insanely catchy, ultra soulful flash back to the days of college dropouts and shutter shades. "Kanye Glasses" is the first single off Connor's new album "So Cal Soul" due for release in early 2014.
After a career ending injury and parting ways with the group, Mike is striking out on his own with a follow-up to his first solo EP "The Free Life" with his first full length album called "The Layover" that will be out on 11/11/13.
The lead single from "The Layover" is called "Dreams" featuring Tabi Bonney and Navaeh Clarke produced by KIllakake.
Today, Connor Evans releases the final single from his critically acclaimed album "The Road to Coachella." The song, "Until", is a haunting look inside an on again/off again relationship complete with love, hate, sex and violence. As with all "The Road to Coachella" material, the song is produced by BHB.
I remember it like it was yesterday. I eagerly went to check the mail at 18 years old in 1998. 2 years earlier I had started one of the first music publications online called the HHN (Hip-Hop Newsletter). I had started to receive a lot more promo materials from record labels and damn, I was excited. I mean I was 18 and I was getting everything free...I didn't have to go the record store (we still had those) like my friends. I opened the mailbox, ripped open the package inside and what I found was this:
Today, Connor Evans releases the latest single off his album "The Road to Coachella." The new single, "Lil' Homie", features Chicago's own Alex Wiley ("Club Wiley" mixtape). Over a boombastic BHB track, Connor and Alex spit street tales reminiscent of that mid 90s Hip-Hop sound.
