5 Reasons Why You Should Buy...: "P.T.I. (Occupy Wall Street)": "Dres As An MC Is Probably One Of The Nicest To Ever Touch A Mic"

[With their new "Pardon The Interruption (Occupy Wall Street)" currently roaring across the Internet, Evitan's Dres and Jarobi give you their Top 5 reasons to cop the new single.]
1. Dope, Man
The first reason is because this is a dope hip-hop record. Aside from the subject matter, it's a really good song. Essentially with the mechanics of this record and the hook of it, the fact it speaks on people's plight, it's very mechanically strong. You're also hearing some next-level production. I feel like this is a dope record. That within itself is the number one reason you should get this. -Dres
2. The Mystic Man Himself
A good reason to buy this record is because I'm on it. I think this is the introduction to hearing my voice on our records. You're hearing my voice on our records. Period. That's a good reason to buy it. I'm very excited about this song. I have a lot of people come up to me and ask about rhyming and stuff like that. There's a lot of people who want to hear me, and so I'm really honored by that. I'm actually really surprised that people want to even listen to me in the first place. Making this record and album [is important] as a fan of hip-hop and at our age, people say no one speaks to them. So finally this is going to become an album that does speak for us. This is for the true hip-hop people. This is going to be an interesting time. -Jarobi
3. Domino Effect
The third reason is because this is the very first single to Evitan. If you want to take this ride and be one of the people who can say you've been down with us since the beginning, this is a very distinct circle. I think people who are messing with us would really like to get into that circle. To be able to say, "Yo, I've been supporting you since Day 1," that's big. This is where we get on the horse. -Dres
4. You Can Get With This
My next reason is because Dres as an emcee is probably one of the nicest to ever touch a microphone. On this song, he's showing his skill along with a great message and the plight of a lot of people. He's discussing what's going on now. -Jarobi
5. For Us, By You
I would say the last reason is because Evitan is a brand of the people and made for the plight of the people. We're talking about everything but especially about this Occupy Wall Street [protest]. Ideally, we are of the people. This is definitely a real life situation going on out here and no matter what's happening, good or horrific, we want to be the voice of the people. We're not in a category. We come from a real place where people can identify with. -Dres
