New York rapper/singer Jared Evan has shared a surprise mixtape, ‘The Art Form Of Whatever II’ – you can listen to it below.
Evan’s latest project is a sequel to his 2015 tape of the same name, which featured appearances from the likes of Santana‘s daughter Stella and multiplatinum-selling singer Max.
Some of the features on the new mixtape include rappers Skyzoo and Termanolgy, and longtime producer Statik Selektah, who joins both of the latter on the boom bap banger ‘Splatter Paint’.
Moe Pope, who appeared on the song ‘Karate’ on the first ‘Art Form’, returns for the sequel, on the track ‘Double Dragon’.
Evan, who has previously worked with the likes of Pharrell, The Game and Joey Bada$$, opens ‘The Art Form Of Whatever II’ with the song ‘Repeat’. On it, he shouts out Killer Mike and El-P of Run The Jewels.
He raps: “Killing mics just like my last LP/ I run the jewels/ You motherfuckers, y’all can’t cancel me/ I pay my dues, you got a bag/ But it’s a bag of weed.”

Meanwhile, an unreleased verse by the late Notorious B.I.G. has been unearthed by Statik Selektah.
The producer, who has worked with the likes of Nas, Joey Bada$$ and Jared Evan, used the verse on a new song he produced titled ‘Bastard Child’, which he shared earlier this year (April 26).
“Some new Biggie for you? (Bored on a Sunday). Even the biggest Notorious fans prob don’t know this verse. Salute @everydayisacanvas for the reminder.”
