On Monday, January 19th, after Sean Paul's NYC show at Element, the infamous NYC RICE and PEAS crew brought one of JA's most unique and eclectic talents, Leftside (aka "Mr. Evil") to perform at their monthly held at Sway in Tribeca.
Leftside's history is crazy. Bassist and bandleader Lloyd Parks is Leftside's father, giving young Leftside the opportunity to play drums for legends like Dennis Brown and Yellowman. Then he worked as Sean Paul's DJ, going on to produce huge hits on big riddims like the Martial Arts, Chiney Gal, and the Giggy with artists Bounty, Sizzla, Elephant, Beenie, Sean Paul, ect.
Now, Leftside has become known as an incredible artist with countless voices and styles. His alter ego, Mr. Evil, (based off Austin Powers' Dr. Evil) became an instant cult classic with hits like "More Punany". Check this video clip of Evil tearing it up @ Sway in NYC for the RICE and PEAS Party.
