Evidence, “To Be Continued…”

Posted in Audio, Downloads with tags , , , , on Monday, February 22, 2010 by Tim Althaus

This made my day on Saturday when I found it, and I definitely want to give a big up to Shake over at 2DopeBoyz. I’ve been itching for some new Mr. Slow Flow material since The LAyover EP dropped, and it looks as though my prayers have been answered. Apparently, Premo dropped this track on his radio station the other night, and from what I’ve read, this track will not be featured on Cats & Dogs; either way you look at it, this track is dope as hell, but I already knew that was the case because it’s EV.

Evidence x Peter Parker x Rhymesayers Entertainment

Posted in Media, Video with tags , , , , on Monday, July 20, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Mr. Peter Parker took a moment with Evidence at Rock the Bells to talk about his newly inked deal with Rhymesayers Entertainment. EV also talks about his last few efforts (The Weatherman LP, The LAyover EP), what he feels like moving to Rhymesayers, why he wanted to go there & a lot more. This is still a subject that I am completely in awe over, might be one of the best moves I’ve ever heard of. I might be a little biased, because as you all know I’m a huge fucking Evidence fan. Like Evidence says on the video, RSE is one hell of a family when it comes to music, and to be honest I think he can only help strengthen that family. You best believe I’m on the hunt for those pre-sale tickets people.

Vimby catches up with Evidence

It’s always good to see and hear new things about EV in the news. The people over at Vimby caught up with Evidence and discussed a variety of issues, including Cats & Dogs. He also discusses how The LAyover was more of a darker album because of the focus of the content (his mother), and lately he has been finding himself making up beat stuff. I like how he talks about performing his material to the fans (EV PLEASE COME TO MINNESOTA AGAIN), and how a live performance might be able to give even more of a visual. It’s also always good to see EV in the studio with Fashawn because you know he’s going to be huge on the scene soon, and it’s great to see EV bringing him into the spotlight.

Make sure you check out the video and stay tuned to Mind Inversion for all of the latest news on Evidence. Oh and one more thing, if you are still sleeping on The LAyover EP there is no hope for you in this lifetime.

Video: Evidence “For Whom the Bell Tolls”

Here it is, the moment we’ve all been waiting for (at least I know I have). The “For Whom the Bell Tolls” video is now up on MTVu. Thanks to yours truly I was able to grab the video off of MTVu and post it. This video is pretty much amazing and is about to get my nod for video of the year in 2009 and we’re only 2 months in. All of these emcees together on one track makes for an impressive showing, and the concept for the video makes it even more impressive. This was actually the lead single off of the The LAyover EP but this is one of the only songs that EV didn’t shoot a video for until now. Make sure you check out the video, and if you haven’t, go out and get The LAyover EP because it was easily one of the best releases of last year.

Man I honestly can’t wait for this video to premier. This behind the scenes look was spotted at 2DopeBoyz, and was done by Hip-Hop Official. This behind the scenes look is much more detailed than the last one, and boy does this video look pretty damn crazy. Make sure you check this out because you know I will have the video up when it comes out. Make sure you watch for Cats & Dogs dropping sometime this year as well. IF you haven’t make sure you go out and get The LAyover EP, that shit’s official.

Here is some behind the scenes action with Evidence, Phonte, and Will.I.Am behind the scenes of the “For Whom the Bell Tolls” music video shoot. If you decided to get one of the best releases of last year (The LAyover EP) then you know that this was one of the only videos not featured on the DVD. To be honest I laughed my ass off when Evidence was talking to Phonte about exfoliation, that shit is downright hilarious. Check out this video because it provides some great laughs. I can’t wait to see the video when it’s done, you know for sure that I will have it up as soon as it premiers.

Rain Or Shine

Here is some videos of EV performing some of his new material off of his new release The LAyover EP. Of course it looks like it’s a live ass show. If you didn’t go out and pick up The LAyover EP, do it now because if you don’t you are going to regret it.

Album Review: Evidence, The LAyover EP

Posted in Music Reviews with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on Tuesday, November 25, 2008 by Tim Althaus

the-layover-epWhat can I say? You people that have been reading this blog, have been listening to me blabber about Evidence from day one. The LAyover EP drops today and suffice to say I already have my copy. I will also say that it’s only 10 tracks long and it might be the best money you will have spent all year on music. This EP is so sound that I can’t find one adjective to describe it (perfect is at the tip of my tongue). Evidence has been single-handedly taking over the Hip-Hop game (with the occasional nod from Alchemist) the last two years and this EP is a perfect example. I also want to say that in the last year we have been hearing a lot of Hip-Hop groups that we all love going towards a very electronic feel (not that it’s bad, but everyone is doing it), and EV sticks to the traditional Hip-Hop sound (samples and straight boom bap) for the most part on this EP (there are 2 tracks that are synth heavy).

The EP starts out with”The LAyover” which was produced by North Carolina beast Khrysis. The beat has a very mysterious and eerie loom to it, but it fits EV just fine as he describes what it’s like to experience a layover on a flight at LAX. “For Whom The Bell Tolls” to some may be one of the top highlights of the album, which features LA native Blu, and North Carolina native Phonte (of Little Brother) and produced by Khrysis. All 3 emcees spit 16 bars of inferno and Khrysis’s beat might actually make you think death himself is coming for you. “So Fresh” is in my opinion maybe one of the best beats on the album, the guitar loop is groovy as fuck and I also think this track serves as a great first track for Step Brothers. “The Far Left” has one of the most bangin’ beats on the album, the shit’s hard as hell (straight head nodder) and Alchemist, Fashawn & Evidence tear the beat apart. The thing that I find impressive about this EP is that I did hear a majority of the tracks before they came out, but there are three tracks of this album that serve to me as the definitive moments. “Rain or Shine” is a great track with a very soulful beat and Evidence rhyming by himself. DJ Babu‘s cuts are impeccable and the samples on this track are beautiful. To me “To Be Determined” is the EP’s shining gem. When I heard that Elzhi and EV were going to be on the same track I flipped my shit, and the result is pure magic. EV and Elzhi spit bars of fire and Aloe Blacc adds a great deal to this track as well with 16 bars of blackout material. If “To Be Determined” wasn’t on this EP “Cold Weather” would surely be the highlight of this album. Evidence takes on this track by himself and rolls smoothly over the beat and beautiful piano loop: “As of late these mics don’t reach too far/ so I kill each bar like it’s Flashing Lights“.

In conclusion this EP is as close to perfect as you can get. This is more than just an EP, it’s a testament that Evidence is going to be doing some huge things. If you slept on The Weatherman LP, you sure as hell don’t want to sleep on this shit, you will be making a huge mistake. Do yourself a favor and go pick up one of the top 3 releases of 2008 folks, you’ve got my word on that.

10/10
