Dilated Peoples Kicked off Capitol Records?
They should have anticipated it, seeing as no one was talking about their latest joint, 20/20. I never even saw a video for the "Back Again" single. Peep the Ballerstatus article:
"There's a lot of good people at Capitol," Evidence told BallerStatus.net. "But, sometimes those aren't the people that write the checks. However, I'm not bitter; I'm definitely ready to move forward."Granted, 20/20 was underwhelming, but damn, this crew is like an gold mine waiting to explode. The Platform was excellent, and Neighborhood Watch was the closest they came to mainstream success. Yet, for some reason, Capitol never went beyond that Kanye single.
Rakaa is currently working on his as yet untitled solo effort, while DJ Babu is putting together Duck Season Vol.3.
Evidence is readying his solo project The Weatherman, a title referencing the nickname fans gave him in his early career. The album will showcase Evidence's lyrics and production skills alongside guests such as Rakaa, Little Brother, Defari, and DJ Revolution, with additional production by The Alchemist, Jake One, and Babu, among others. It is slated for release on March 20 of 2007 on ABB Records.
Evidence is also collaborating with the Alchemist on The A&E Project, which will feature both artists on the boards and behind the mic. The album is expected to drop after The Weatherman, early next year.
Little Brother, take note.
