B. Eveready - 'Love this Life'
Review by Brandon Watts & Staff
Born and bred in Boston, now residing in Baltimore, B.Eveready draws inspiration from a wide-ranged of influences, from Hip-Hop to soul and everything in between. With family roots in Barbados as well, his music melds the hood and posh places. His sound is a blend of that old school knock, social commentary, punch lines, and great hooks. This is the rage of every suited Black man in America, translated through rhyme & rhythm. A graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, and a sincere Christian, B's intelligence and faith are his compass. In his productive career, B.Eveready has recorded or performed with The Last Poets, Cappadonna (of the Wu-Tang Clan), Talib Kweli, Jin the MC, Skyzoo, Torae, Red Cafe, Emilio Rojas, Chen Lo, Chaundon, Comp (formerly of Def Jam), Sean-Toure (Fat Beats), Daru Jones (drummer for Jack White & The Stripes), Huli Shallone, Gene Stovall, Scholarman, Breeze Embalm and more. The tracks from his 2008 "C.P.T." Mixtape, have been downloaded over 10,000 times, and 2011's The "Guns & Butta" EP/Mixtape, 2012's "A Cold Summer's Day" EP, compilation album "#INeedAManager" (2012), "#GrindSeason" EP (2015), and 2017's "#INeedAManager: The Re-Up", 2018’s “#GS2" EP, & 2020’s "The #OutGrind Mixtape" have all been well received by critics and fans alike, amassing well over 345k streams on Spotify alone.
B. Eveready’s “Love This Life” off of the #Gs2 project is an energetic record with a strong, memorable hook and a positive message that will have you hyped about life.
Immediately grabbing your attention, the song opens with enticing production featuring ambient vocals harmonies accompanied by killer jazzy bass, intricate chopped up percussion, and glitchy effects that make this record sound like a hit before the vocals even drop.
After the intro, the drop of a booming sub-bass queues the entrance of smooth, harmonized R & B vocals to kick off the hook as B. Eveready interjects with slick bars between phrases. Progressing through the first verse, B. Eveready spits introspective bars about getting through the hard times in life and how he’s always putting in the work and seeing the positives.
“Strictly for surviva starting reading the bible Focus on my talent aint worried bout title got the bars up cause my wave on Tidal.”
B. Eveready's flow is infectious, quick, and witty entrancing listeners as he flows through each bar with grace. BigTyme comes in for the second verse, pumping the track with his high energy delivery of inspiring bars that make for a compelling addition to the track.
From the production, to the songwriting, to the delivery of the record, “Love This Life” shines, and it is safe to say that B. Eveready is more than ready for every success he achieves.
