Atlanta-by-way-of-San Diego spitter Ev4n Holt caught our attention back in February with "Streets Keep Callin'," a fiery display of technical skill. And since then, he's been wrapping up his latest project, the newly released x. Evan Holt EP.
It features the 20-year-old rapper flexing a laid-back, albeit attention-demanding, flow over production from buzzing producers Thelonious Martin and WhoAreI. The latter especially shines on standout track "Strangs," a lovelorn storytelling joint with a cool, NYC vibe. Holt's also jacked some beats on here, including Mobb Deep's "The Releast" for "Streets Keep Callin'."
If you have been looking new, honest, and raw to listen to these days, x.Evan Holt is most certainly for you.
