Adriana Evans is the talented daughter of Mary Stallings, a singer who performed with Count Basie and once recorded an album with Cal Tjader. She’s also the god-daughter of jazz legend Pharaoh Sanders. She’s the voice you hear on Dred Scott’s “Check The Vibe” and she’s had a fruitful career of her own as well.  Her musical pedigree gave her an ear for sampled beats that is downright impeccable, and I’ve always thought that the  Dred Scott produced instrumentals for her self-titled debut would have worked well as rap songs. Seemingly reading my mind, our resident blend master Vaporized cooked up this compilation of blends featuring classic rap acapaellas from beloved artists like The Artifacts, Gravediggaz, Digable Planets and more, dropped over Adriana Evans instrumentals. The results are excellent and if you aren’t bumping this in anticipation of warmer weather, I question whether or not you really got soul. — Thun
