With the ongoing state of trap dominance, it's easy to overlook some of that underground fire. Today, Rhymesayers' Evidence has come through with an excellent project called Weather Or Not, which features production from a stellar cast of reliable names from DJ Premier, Nottz, Alchemist, and more. The guest appearances are equally solid with verses from Atmosphere's Slug, Styles P, Rapsody on deck. If you're longing for something not unlike Wiki's excellent No Mountains In Manhattan, you might want to check this out; where that project focused on New York, this one is drenched in Los Angeles vibe.
On the standout cut "Jim Dean," Nottz comes through with an absolute banger, while Evidence delivers smooth bars like "my quiet thoughts at night can turn rowdy, light bulbs and bright ideas can turn cloudy." Don't sleep on this one, especially if you're looking for something a little different from the current norm.
