Willie Evans Jr. - Introducin' (CD)
Willie Evans Jr. is the physical manifestation of Hip-Hop and one of the funkiest cats to ever touch a microphone and MPC. You see, not only will Willie rap circles around your favorite rappers, favor- ite rapper, he can also craft a beat, so funky that Clyde Stubblefield himself would be proud. The Jacksonville, Florida bred MC/Produc- er/Visual Artist is at the forefront of a collective of artists that have single handedly managed to put Northeast Florida on the map as a cauldron of Hip-Hop and artistic expression.
His new album Introducin’ is fully produced by Willie Evans Jr. The album itself tells the story of a kid (Willie) who’s can’t learn music the traditional way so he decides to use the MPC to express him- self. Songs like “Introducin’” and “Dumbtron” showcase Willie’s lyrical ability while songs like “Take 2” and “A$amov” display his story tell- ing side. On “Nerd English” Willie tackles the need for MCs to front like they’re hard while he embraces his nerd side with lines like “I whoop a n*gga ass but sometimes I probably can’t/I pull a pistol fast but my aim is not really great”.
