Queens native Evie Blanco keeps it extra raw on “Uncut Raw”, where she hijacks a record from Havoc’s 2013 solo LP and goes in, which ended up getting the approval of Havoc himself. Evie had a tumultuous previous stint in rap, but is back at it. Regarding life on the come-up after a messed-up deal:
I signed an indie deal in like 2009 and it was complete bullshit. I was young and didn’t have guidance so I encountered a lot. [After that,] I did everything from mixtape distribution to graphics to fashion show coordinating, but still went into the studio periodically. My desire to chase a career as a rapper kinda died but my love for creating ill music didn’t. Having dope friends and family actively in the industry has always inspired me to push forward, which is why one way or another, I made a career out of hip-hop. You’ll hear my lil voice here and there though. Now that I have control and flexibility, I have an idea of what I’m looking to do next.
Evie Blanco plans to drop her solo LP this coming fall.
