White and Purple (Sherman Ave Remix)

15 Jun

Few artists have shaken the Northwestern community quite like Chet Haze. So what better artist to emulate for the release of Evander Jones’ first single than Chester Hanks himself? Jones’ cover will also be featured on our upcoming mixtape of local musicians, Now That’s What I Call Heinous, vol. 1, set for release this Winter, and can be purchased wherever print editions of Sherman Ave are sold.

This might be one of the few songs in recorded history featuring a worse rapper than Chet Haze himself.

Look for other Evander Jones artistic endeavors in the near future, including his upcoming romantic novel 50 Shades of Purple, his semi-autobiographical musical How to Start a Race Controversy Without Really Trying, and his senior thesis regarding the history of the fucksaw.
