Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 19, 2009
Time and time again, we see music artists skyrocket to fame with a monster hit and fall from the spotlight just as swiftly. Sadly, these artists become our "one hit wonders" due to bad contracts, poor relationships and flat out disregard for the future.
Fortunately for Crunk-era phenom Archie Eversole aka Mr. Evasocold, a case of bad business is far behind him as he re-enters the scene in 2009 with the Needlz-produced singles "What Money Sounds Like" and "How You Like Me Now;" a new mixtape Back Like I Never Left slated for release in February; and a full-length album in the works.
Born in Germany on a military base, Archie Eversole became a soldier in Atlanta's emerging Hip Hop scene at just 16 years old. He garnered a deal with Phat Boy Records and MCA Records, and released the wildly popular 2002 anthem "We Ready" featuring Bubba Sparxxx. Unfortunately, as the excitement of his debut album Ride Wit Me Dirty South Style grew, things were dissolving behind the scenes.
The success of "We Ready" continued to flourish, as the NFL and NBA picked up the track for seasonal campaigns. Meanwhile, the situation with his recording contract fizzled. Although he was held unwillingly under contract for four years, Archie Eversole finally gained independence in early 2008.
With his sights set clearly forward, Archie immediately joined forces with Slummed Out and Dry Rain Entertainment. Multi-platinum producer Needlz began creating fresh hits for the now 24-year-old lyricist, setting the pace for 2009. Under the guidance of Zingari Management, Archie Eversole is officially back in the saddle with the Core DJ-supported single "How You Like Me Now" and the follow-up club energizer "What Money Sounds Like."
The upcoming project Back Like I Never Left, hosted by mixtape heavyweight DJ Scream, will serve as a formidable prelude to the full-length album, re-igniting the spark that fans have been missing since Archie Eversole left the scene. Original production on the mixtape includes tracks from Needlz, Grammy-winning St. Louis duo The Trak Starz and their affiliates Da Beat Freakz.
Thus far, he has enlisted some R&B features from Jaiden "The Cure," K. Michelle of Hitz Committee/Jive and Tydis of Trak Starz Entertainment. As he injects Back Like I Never Left with more creative intensity, Archie Eversole is very focused on a proper re-introduction.
"I want fans to know where I've been," he explains. "I just want them to appreciate the music and the time and effort that goes into it. But more than that is the story behind it, because it is my life and what I had to go through to even get to the point of giving them the music. I want everybody to know I'm back full force. The fans who stayed down with me, I really want them to know I appreciate it."
