iTunes Review

Best known as one-third of Los Angeles hip-hop mainstays Dilated Peoples, Evidence has been putting out records since 1997 after growing up in Venice Beach, writing graffiti and learning the beatmaking ropes from next-door neighbor QD3. Outside of Dilated he’s also a formidable producer; on the solo tip he dropped The Weatherman LP in 2007 and The Layover EP the following year and has kept busy with mixtapes and instrumental projects. On Cats & Dogs, he delivers 20 rock-solid joints produced by some of the best in the business, including longtime homies Alchemist, Sid Roams, and DJ Babu, as well as DJ Premier, Statik Selektah, and Khrysis. Step Brothers (his new group with Al) shines on "James Hendrix"; Raekwon and Ras Kass join the fray on "The Red Carpet"; Queens superthugs Prodigy and Roc Marciano show up for "Fame"; and subterranean superstars Slug and Aesop Rock do their thing on "Late for the Sky." Ev's signature straightforward flow is in full effect, and it’s buoyed by strong beats and quality features throughout.

The epitome of what the late 80's and early 90's were! An entire album worthy of listening to, cohesive and great production throughout. Not a bunch of singles just strung together to go platinum off of ring tones.

EV is ALWAYS raining beats & lyrics!!!

EASILY one of the sickest producers and lyricists!!! after years of making hip hop, he still NEVER lets up! thank you for continuing to bring the dopest music...

One of the best albums of 2011.

Yo, I'm definitely not going to say that I didn't download the leak a week ago... but I will say that this album is straight bangers. With so many guest emcees and dope producers, who wouldn't want to cop this album? If you like that feel good type stuff, then you're in for a real treat. Ev was on point with this one. Big ups homie. CA all day!

One-third of the influential L.A. hip-hop group Dilated Peoples, Evidence was born Michael Perretta in Los Angeles, relocating from Santa Monica to Venice Beach with his mother when he was six, after his parents' divorce. Though Evidence was heavily into skating and graffiti while growing up, it wasn't until he was 12, when he moved next door to QDIII (Quincy Jones' son) and was able to see firsthand how beats were made and what it took to be a top-quality producer, that he began to be more interested...
