Career

Eversole began his career in 2001, at just 17 years, when he released his album “Ride Wit Me Dirty South Style,” featuring the iconic track “We Ready," which would become a Southern and later domestic sports anthem.

The album was first released by Phat Boy Records and re-released by MCA Records in 2002. After the re-release, the “Ride Wit Me Dirty South Style” album reached the 83rd spot on the Billboard 200 chart [2] and the 16th spot on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chat. [3]

Although the “We Ready” song ended up at the 66th spot on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart [4] , it grew into a sports anthem. The track was included in the promotions for National Football League and played during matches of Major League Soccer club Atlanta United.

Apart from his hit track, some of his other singles are "My Hood," featuring Mack 10, and "I Hear Ya Talkin,” featuring Big Gipp, both released in 2002.

Kansas City Royals, a baseball team from Kansas, adopted the “We Ready” song as their anthem during their Major League Baseball campaign.

After the successful reception in the sports world, Archie created a remix featuring Bubba Sparxxx and released a music video.

In 2005, Eversole opened his publishing and licensing company “Evasocold Publishing” and had multiple deals with big-name brands such as NFL, Disney, MLS, EA Sports, Fox, and Atlanta United. [5]

Eversole produced and released the track “United We Conquer,” - the theme song of the Atlanta United football team. He was also featured in Baby D’s song “ATL H*e” in 2002, together with Lil Jon and Pastor Troy.

Archie's last song was “King,” released in 2020.

Police reports stated that on the night of the shooting, Eversole went to the gas station to ask for help and told the store workers and officers that his shooter was still in his home.

The brothers lived together, and when the police went to his home, they found Alexander alone. The prosecution claimed there had been signs of struggle and evidence that connected his brother to the crime. [7]

Archie’s mother and his manager claimed that Alexander Krause was innocent, stating they never had any falling out.
