Evidence new album ‘Cats & Dogs’ is out on Rhymesayers Entertainment and to celebrate the album and the Rhymesayers European Tour hitting London on November 7th, Hip Hop Kings has two Evidence t-shirts up for grabs.
‘Cats & Dogs’ is an album of brutal honesty as Evidence opens up to the world like never before while maintaining his respected signature sound with the deadpan delivery and incomparable gravitas that earned him the title “Mr. Slow Flow.” His skills and distinctive style are complemented by an all-star cast of friends and collaborators including Wu Tang’s Raekwon, Mobb Deep’s Prodigy, Dilated Peoples cohort Rakaa, Slug of Atmosphere, Aesop Rock, Ras Kass, Roc Marciano, Krondon, Lil Fame of M.O.P., Termanology and recent UK chart-topper Aloe Blacc.
While best-known as a wordsmith, Evidence is no slouch behind the boards either. He was awarded a Grammy for his work on Kanye West’s ‘College Dropout’, and he showcases his abilities on several tracks here alongside work from legendary Hip Hop producer DJ Premier, longtime collaborators The Alchemist (Eminem, Lil Wayne & more) and Sid Roams and up-and-comers Twiz the Beat Pro, Rahki and Charli Brown.
To be in with a chance of winning one of these t-shirts name the legendary Hip-Hop crew that Evidence is in. Drop a comment with your email address, or send the details to the following.
