Evian Christ drops Kings and Them mixtape

It makes sense that 2012’s first youtube-born ‘next big thing’ would land on Tri-Angle — the home of How To Dress Well, Balam Acab, oOoOO and Clams Casino.  The label just dropped this mixtape of the 8 tracks the enigmatic Evian Christ posted in late December.  Having only listened to “Fuck It None Of Ya’ll Don’t Rap” before this release,… Read more →
