EVS - Shades Of Grey


Released in 1999, Shades Of Grey was the first solo release from EVS. EVS is an MC from San Diego, California and is/was a member of the Commonwealth, Subdivision, Convenience Store, and la2thebay crews. When I picked this tape up I had never heard any of EVS's music. I bought this on the strength of a recommendation from Optimus Rhymes, back when he was working at Below The Surface. Since hearing this album I have done my best to follow EVS's music. I haven't heard anything new from EVS lately, I hope he's still making music and if/when something new comes out I will be sure to cop it.

I don't have any music from EVS's old crews, except the Subdivision - Appetizer Ep. If anyone has anything I would love to get a copy and post it on the site. Thanks
