Deon ''Big D The Impossible'' Evans

Deon “Big D The Impossible“ Evans was known widely for his production work with Tupac Shakur in crafting such timeless 2Pac tracks as „If My Homie Calls„, „Brenda’s Got A Baby“ (co-produced with Underground Railroad), „Changes,“, „N.I.G.G.A,“ „Crooked Nigga Too,“ „Ghetto Gospel,“ „Don’t U Trust Me?,“ „Resist the Temptation,“ „Dopefiend’s Diner,“ and „Papa’z Song,“ among others (See the list below).

Deon Evans was part of the East Bay hip-hop fabric and working with other artists such as Berkeley rapper/producer Clever Jeff. He also contributed to Digital Underground and was a part of the extended family. DJ Fuze and Money B used to live a couple of blocks away and were always hanging out. His older brother James ran with the DU crew. The two appear in Digital Underground’s „DooWutchYaLike“ video. Pac was a part of that musical family too, and it is in hip-hop history books that Deon Evans’ legacy will be mostly forever interlocked with Tupac’s name.

Big D Evans also played an instrumental role in assisting Tupac’s mother and estate in releasing Tupac’s posthumous best-selling multi-platinum album: Tupac’s Greatest Hits which sold over 11 million copies worldwide, remaining the best-selling rap greatest hits album of all time. Evans also produced on both albums released by Tupac during his life, including 2Pacalypse Now and Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z.
