Eversole, mostly called Archie, was popularly known for his best-selling 2002 single "We Ready" with Bubba Sparxx. The single became an anthem for the Atlanta United soccer club. Eversole also created a song specifically for the team, which he talked about on a visit to Good Day Atlanta in 2018.

During the interview, Eversole said that Atlanta was part of everything that he did from his birth in Riverdale. "Atlanta is the heart of all the music I've ever created," he told Alyse Eady. "And we're a high energy city."

Meanwhile, Atlanta United said they were "heartbroken" by the news of Eversole's death. "A staple in the Atlanta hip-hop scene, Archie adopted Atlanta United before our first season and continued to be one of our club’s most fervent supporters," the club claimed in a statement. "In addition to his decorated musical career, his voice will long live in our supporters’ minds as ‘We Ready’ billows through the speakers for kick-off at Atlanta United matches. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends."

Eversole’s music was also welcomed by other sports, including the National Football League (NFL) as they used it as the soundtrack of a 2019 season kick-off campaign. Eversole two albums were on Billboard's charts, including "Ride Wit Me" which reached No. 85 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, and "Ride Wit Me Dirty South Style" made it to No. 16 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and No. 83 on the Billboard 200.
