"2DopeBoyz Premieres "Where Was Eye" EP"

Outside of a couple things with Thelonious Martin and Xuice Hades, Ev4n Holt has been extremely quite over the past 365. All that has changed though as the ATLien just hit us with a new project, entirely produced by whoarei. - Shake

"Karen Civil Introduces Evan Holt"

Everyone meet ev4n holt, a 19-year-old San Diego, CA native who currently resides in Atlanta. He classifies his genre of style as Experimental/Hip-Hop with influences of J. Dilla, Kanye West, Raekwon, and T.I. Above is a track titled ‘Hope That’ from his previous years project ‘ Thanks Dilla’. You can preview more of his tracks at the link below as well as follow him on Twitter. - Karen Civil


"DJ Booth Premieres "Looking Up""

Sh*t is Looking Up for ev4n holt—and not just because he scored a feature on the number-one hip-hop site on the planet (cough, us). The San Diego representer’s first Booth feature finds WhoArel flipping a triumphant brass sample as the unsigned rhymesayer chronicles his efforts to rise above the struggle that surrounds him - Richard


"Respect Mag Premieres New Single "Ready For The Day""

Produced by Thelonious Martin, “Ready For The Day” by the scratchy-voiced Evan Holt is a perfectly concise window into the styles of both artists. Thelonious may have never touched a beat without making it swing, and Evan relaxes into the groove, each line building off the last leading the listener down the tracks of his hazy train of thought. This is rooftop music. Evan and Martin‘s collaborative project, The Temptations is on the way. - Ben Sherak

"The Source Magazine Premieres "Streets Keep Calling" Music Video"

San Diego-bred, Atlanta-based emcee Ev4n Holt takes on the infamous mobb’s classic “The Realest” in his latest video. Not only does the 20-year-old rap but he also gets his goon sangin’ on during his visit to Hav & P’s stomping grounds. Look out for a mixtape from Holt coming soon. - Nate Santos


"Complex Magazine Premieres "x.Evan Holt"

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. - Andrew Martin

Bio

Atlanta Hip-Hop artist, Evan Holt, is 22 with a catalog of music waiting to be heard. After releasing his first official project in 2010, "Thanks Dilla", Evan has since followed up by releasing three quality releases---"1.5", "x.evan Holt" and most recently, "Where Was Eye". The former San Diego native has been recording longer than he's had any diploma, and plans to have his masters with or without the masters degree.

Inspired by a wide range of Hip Hop artists from past to present, Evan is a storyteller with a sense of awareness. While a lot of today's music is heavily influenced by the South and fashion trends, Evan is more concerned about making something that is genuine and timeless. His music is straight forward, with more "real life" than real length, and feels as if each work is still being written.

Having nothing but time on his side, Evan has more than enough music to pass around. He hopes to make his premiere breakthrough with his producer/friend, DJ Dallas, and their album, "Lone Star State", which has been in the works since Evan's sophomore year of college, and is said to be his dissertation as an artist.
