Evidence

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 in seriously pursuing music. He hooked up with MC Rakaa in 1992, and the duo released a few singles as Dilated Peoples (their first beats courtesy of QDIII) before adding DJ Babu in 1998. The group issued four albums (The Platform, Expansion Team, Neighborhood Watch, 20/20) on Capitol before splitting from them in 2006 and joining ABB. It was to that same label that Evidence turned for his solo album. Titled The Weatherman (a nickname a fan had given him early in his career), the record, something he had wanted to make since 2001 but had been unable to because of the contract with Capitol, was released in March 2007, and featured production from Evidence himself, Jake One, the Alchemist, and Babu, among others, and was followed by Red Tape Instrumentals, an album of beats, a few months later. In 2011 he returned with the album Cats & Dogs, featuring guests like Aloe Blacc, Raekwon, Slug, and Prodigy, along with production from the Alchemist, DJ Premier, DJ Babu, and others. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi

Damn I love this guy he's so ill It's no joke to anyone who knows me knows how much I love this guys music and to add to it, I just happened to come across his music by accident and lost my mind when I first heard his music and since then I have not been able to stop listening to his music except for when I was in a medically induced coma for a couple of months after I was in a really bad accident about 2 years ago in which my head went through the Window and I had to get my head stapled back to
