Evidence – “Throw It All Away” / “Jim Dean” (Live Performance) [Video]

Evo at Vevo doing his damn thing tho’! Two joints, live, right in the booth, from his latest project, “Weather Or Not.” Rock with this.

Revered by fans since his days in Dilated Peoples, during the last two decades Evidence has been steadily building an enviable rep in the game. On his own, he’s dropped the acclaimed solo discs ‘The Weatherman’ and ‘Cats & Dogs,’ which included features as diverse as Aloe Black and Raekwon. Now he’s back with perhaps his strongest set of tracks yet. ‘Weather Or Not’ on Rhymesayers boasts strong lyrics and irresistible beats provided by a handful of producers including Nottz, The Alchemist, DJ Babu and DJ Premier. From “Jim Dean” to “10,000 Hours,” it’s a must-hear. We’re celebrating its arrival by having Evidence in our NYC studio, spitting “Throw It All Away” and “Jim Dean” and chatting with Vevo’s Jayson Rodriguez about putting the album together.
