Toronto rapper, Maestro Fresh Wes, has released a music video for his song “Mr. Evans.” Featuring Ras Kass and vocals by Cyndi Cain, the track and accompanying video emphasize the need for strong role models in the black community, particularly father figures. The song is off the rapper’s most recent album, Coast Fresh, which was recently nominated for Rap Recording of the Year at the 2018 Juno Awards. You can watch the music video here.
About “Mr. Evans,” Maestro Fresh Wes says:
When we examine the negative images of black males through media, we understand the importance of fathers to be in the lives of their children to guide them in the right direction. It’s an important conversation to have, especially during Black History Month.
Hello, I’m Chloe from Montreal! I am a 26 year old McGill and Concordia graduate in physiology and psychology. While my career path has fallen more into the education field, music, reading, and writing remain three of my strongest passions. Despite this, I have been told more than once that I have the worst singing voice in the entire world. Because the life of a musician has not worked out for me, I instead attend concerts and write about them. Many of them. I have been known to overuse the word “favorite,” especially when talking about music.
