Last week, Evidence announced the imminent arrival of new music from Step Brothers – the creative alliance he formed with long-term friend and collaborator, Alchemist. Today saw the release of their new single, which arrives five years after the success of their Lord Steppington LP.

The only real difference is in Alc’s flow, as it sounds slightly more in your face than on previous records, which is definitely not a bad thing. As it stands this is a standalone single, with a limited edition 12″ vinyl version available via Tuff Kong Records. The video was made by The Digggers.

Now you can hear the Alchemist produced track in all its glory and you can even download yourself a copy from all the usual spots.
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.
