Evidence is bringing us his new solo album at the start of next year and to give us a little sample of his wares, he has released another new video from the project. Jim Dean sees the LA MC collaborating with Jason Goldwatch again, who is the man responsible for the first ever Dilated video and for Ev’s first solo video too. The track was produced by Nottz. Weather or Not is due out on Rhymesayers on 26 January and pre-orders are available here.


Aesop Rock is the king of surprises releases. Most of his Lice projects with Homeboy Sandman have been seemingly spontaneous and yesterday saw the arrival of a brand new track, in conjunction with the charity, Grind For Life.
The video premiered over on Thrasher yesterday and as well as some nice beats and rhymes from Ace himself, there is also some slick as fuck skating from the talented, Jake Gascoyne. Kurt Hayashi is the man behind the video and between the three of them, they have put together a very nice audio/visual treat. The track is available to buy now, with vinyl copies on the way and all proceeds will go to Grind For Life.

The latest video from Brother Ali has just been released and it contains some very striking visuals. Draped on white robes, Ali delivers his verses from the beautiful Dar Al Islam, in New Mexico. The video was made by Kron and features dance duo, Al Taw’am. For more info on the shoot, check out the video on Youtube. Never Learn is lifted from All The Beauty In This Whole Life, which is out on 5 May on Rhymesayers.

This is an old interview me and a friend did back in 2008. I thought it had been lost forever, as the site we did it for is no longer around. Then I stumbled across an archived copy online yesterday, so thought I would share it. It was the first face to face interview I had ever done and I was nervous as fuck. It took place at the The Social in London in 2008, at a listening party for Atmosphere’s forthcoming album at the time, When Life Gives You Lemons. Read the rest of this entry »

You can always rely on Evidence to bring his best raps to the table, as he demonstrates in his brand new video which was released yesterday. Throw It All Away sees the LA MC link up with his Step Brother, Alchemist, who creates his usual brand of audible gold for Ev to get busy on. There is a new album due some time later in the year on RSE, but for now you can buy the new single here.

Sublime new sounds from RSE favourite, Brother Ali, as he delivers the latest offering from his forthcoming album. Own Light is produced by Ant. Pre-orders for All the Beauty in This Whole World are available here, with the release date scheduled for 5 May.

A very welcome return for Rhymesayers representative Brother Ali, as he releases the next single from his upcoming album. All the Beauty in This Whole Life looks set to be a piece of positive ammo to help fight the current negative zeitgeist. This track, Pen To Paper, is produced by Ant. Pre-orders for the LP are available here and the release is scheduled for 5 May.

Aesop Rock is my favourite rapper for a number of reasons, including his transparency about his struggle with mental illness.
First time I heard One of Four on the Daylight EP, I was blown away but the honesty and also by how he managed to turn psychological trauma into a decent rap topic. On his most recent album he took a comedic swipe at the world of therapy in Shrunk and yesterday Rhymesayers released an excellent video for the track. Read the rest of this entry »

lice2Hooray for Aesop Rock and Homeboy Sandman. Yesterday they unexpectedly released the follow up to their surprise Lice project, which dropped at the end of last year. I say unexpected, but the day before Aesop started tweeting the hashtag #stillbuggin, which had got fan’s feelers twitching. Read the rest of this entry »

Little bit of a treat here as Aesop Rock has unearthed a children’s song he wrote a few years ago. It was for a project which never came to fruition, so he’s decided to drop it himself as a little gift.
