Over the weekend, Dilated Peoples Producer/Emcee Evidence stopped by RSE (Rhymesayers Entertainment) Radio and discussed his upcoming album Cats and Dogs, co-producing Kanye's College Dropout and more. Ev also debuted a new tune from the upcoming album titled "Late For The Sky" featuring SKoA favorites Atmosphere's Slug and Aesop Rock. Peep the new track in the player below and check out the full interview here. Also, if you haven't heard Ev's latest DJ Premier produced single "You", peep it here.
Cats and Dogs drops Sept. 27th on Rhymesayers. Pick it up.
Enjoy the video for Evidence's new single, "You" straight from the forthcoming album Cats & Dogs , which drops on September 27th, courtesy of Rhymesayers. The track was produced by legendary hip-hop producer DJ Premier, who you can also find tucked away in the video. The video is pretty trippy. I think I would get confused with that many copies of myself all over the place.
It's been awhile since we heard any thing from Evidence, who represents 1/2 of Los Angeles Hip Hop group Dilated Peoples, but now the time has finally come for Ev to release his long awaited, highly anticipated second solo full-length, Cats & Dogs, on Rhymesayers Entertainment this Fall, September 27th. This is Ev's first solo effort since releasing 2007's The Weatherman LP (aside from last year's Beatles mixtape I Don't Need Love) and the new album features some exciting guests like Rhymesayer's labelhead Slug of Atmosphere, Raekwon, Aloe Blacc, Prodigy, Aesop Rock, Krondon of Strong Arm Steady and more.
Check out the first taste from the upcoming album with a video for last year's single "To Be Continued..." as well as the full tracklist and some tour dates with Atmosphere after the jump. I know I'm really looking forward to that Slug and Aesop collaboration.

Rhymesayers Artist, Evidence of Dilated Peoples has been quietly working on new Beatles-influenced mixtape which he recently announced via Twitter. The tape was expected to drop for Ev's birthday, however leaked out early onto the net. Read Evidence's official statement on the tape/leak below:
"As many of you know my intention was to release a track for you on my birthday. Somewhere between the files being sent to get mixed and mastered and sent back to me the entire project was leaked. I don't know how the files were obtained but at this point there isn't anything I can do to control the spread of the project so please enjoy it in it's entirety. 'I Don't Need Love'"
Check out the mixtape in the player below, its pretty bangin.
First and foremost, HAPPY 420 Day EVERYONE! How did you guys enjoy your wake and bake? So I was thinking what better way to start off this day by giving you some brand new Cypress Hill. This sticky joint, "Pass The Dutch", is off the groups newly released album Rise Up, which released today. Dilated Peoples' MC Evidence and producer Alchemist join The Hill in explaining good social smoking etiquette. Check this banger out and go pick up Rise Up today!
