Evidence – “Powder Cocaine” feat. Slug (Prod. By Alchemist) [Video]

Ev leaned on his go-to guy (Alchemist) for the banging beat to drop the People’s Elbow on and smash it out for the three count!

(Too much ‘rasslin? Not a fan of ‘The Rock’ or his Elbow, huh? Okay, how about a Slug on the track to knock the track on out?!)

Check out “Powder Cocaine”.

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.

Take what I get, so I ain’t thankful for sh!t…

Know how you know you got yourself a dope download mixtape? When you got dope beats and bars setting that thing off from the jump! That’s what this “Aren’t U Glad You’re U?” project is. Salute to Domo Genesis & Evidence (oh, and Phontigallo for the guest feature)!

Step Brothers – “Lay Some Treats on Us”

How cool is this? Alchemist & Evidence (aka Step Brothers) literally lyrically “Lay Some Treats on Us” with this jawn. Didn’t make the “Lord Steppington” (link here) LP from a good while back, but they drop it in the goodie bag now… way before trick-or-treat time.

Evidence – “Jim Dean” (Video)

Hot damn if this shyt don’t bang!! Incredible feel when the Beats & Lyrics run together and over a cliff like this. Flows like a waterfall in this “Jim Dean” jawn! And to bring it further into life, in visual form, Evidence tapped his video go-to guy, Jason Goldwatch. Because…

The first Dilated Peoples Video, “Third Degree,” was directed by Jason. My first solo video, “Mr. Slow Flow,” was directed by Jason. He’s always been a part of my team, not just some guy for hire. Being that he moved to LA from NY recently, we knew it was time to work. The new video is jumping all over LA to narrate the lyrics through still and moving images. Jason came up with an amazing way to have it all transition together through SSUR t-shirts coming to life. The locations in the video are personally important to me -the alley where I grew up, Alchemist’s studio etc.

“Jim Dean” is on Evidence’s forthcoming album “Weather or Not” (due out January 26, 2018).

Madchild – “BadChild” (Prod. By Evidence) [Video]

“BadChild” is Madchild snapping over an Evidence beat forged from that heat of the street… for the streets! And it sounds like it. Driving in the video, riding the track, rapping lyrics you could visualize even without these Dhesi-directed visuals (which are dope). This really sounds like a kid that did bad, got put on punishment, and has come to realize why.

But that beat though.

Get this as part of a pre-order of “The Darkest Hour” via the link here.

Evidence – “Throw It All Away” (Prod. By Alchemist)

Back. To. BASICS! An airy boomp-bap beat from A-L-C, dope azz lyricism, and a crispy black & white visuals. Evidence is throwing in all the Hip-Hop chips for this “Throw It All Away” jawn!

Now, the song says there’s more on the way. Truth. Like that full album from Ev. Kep a look out!

Recently Published Footage Calls Events Preceding Mike Brown’s Death Into Question (Video)

LOOK at this and TRY not to get mad. Remember the Michael Brown case; the Ferguson police murder (er…arrest)? Well, additional footage dropped that shows the strong-arm robbery Brown supposedly perpetrated on the owner – the video footage of which was leaked, somehow ‘justifying’ the arresting officer’s use of lethal force – did not tell the entire story. See, above is another piece of footage that shows an orderly exchange, perhaps even a DEAL struck between Brown and the store owner. Strange how that’s been left out of the conversation until now, huh?

For all unaware (read: NOT ‘woke’), THAT is how you paint a negative narrative using ‘actual footage.’ You don’t put out all the footage, just the part that supports the story you want told, AND negates the one you don’t. Whatever happened, Mike Brown should NOT be dead. TRUTH! The ‘strong arm video’ was meant to sell us on the bad-things-happen-to-bad-people story. Wrong story, okay. ‘They’ (e.g. those who want you to believe that Mike Brown was ‘not so good enough’ that he deserved to live to be tried like a citizen) WANTED that video to be seen to support their story, not the one this new footage tells…

But Jay Kanzler, a lawyer for the convenience store and its employees, strongly disputes that version of events, and said the new footage is unrelated to Mr. Brown’s later visit to the store.

HUH! Their lawyer disputes the new footage and what it might reveal… Ya think?

Evidence’s Truthful ‘Confessions’ (Video)

In this episode of Confessions, FACT fires questions at Evidence (of Dilated Peoples) and he gives the straight dope on ’em. Best two (to us): (1) that he is not mad, just high and (2) that he sleeps pretty f#cking good (likely because of the being high thing)!

Diamond D – “It’s Magic” feat. Alchemist x Evidence (Video)

The official D.I.T.C. emcee, DJ, & producer Diamond D’s new album the ‘Diam Piece’ has been one of my favorites to have dropped in 2014. After dropping the new video ‘Only Way 2 Go’ featuring Pete Rock just a number of days ago, Diamond D takes it out to the West Coast for new visuals to ‘It’s Magic’ featuring the dual threat of  Alchemist & Evidence who are literally ‘laying it down’ in the streets of Los Angeles.
