EVITAN (Dres x Jarobi) – P.T.I. (Occupy Wall Street) (Video)

blame it on JES7 December 5, 2011

This is very dope! Dres of Black Sheep has teamed up with Jarobi of A Tribe Called Quest to form a two-man group they’ve dubbed EVITAN (Native spelled backwards, as in Native Tongues). They plan on releasing their album sometime in early 2012, but already have a jump on things with their first single, P.T.I. (Pardon the Interruption).

“The 99% need to have not just a voice, but voices,” says Dres on what inspired he and Jarobi to write the song. “We need to have more voices that speak to our plight beyond what is given to us via the media.” And despite the logistical difficulties, Dres and Jarobi were adamant about shooting the video amongst the OWS protesters, noting that they “couldn’t be soldiers and not see the front line.”

Looking forward to hearing more!
