It doesn’t take much to be a meteorologist in Los Angeles (usually just a short skirt and the ability to say “77 degrees and sunny”), so maybe that’s why the city’s most famous weatherman is a rapper. Evidence is that rapper (and producer), one third of Dilated Peoples and Grammy Winner on Kanye’s ‘College Dropout”. But the Venice-native will always be known by the title of his critically-lauded solo debut, The Weatherman.

 

Yeah, it’s almost always sunny and there’s a whole lot of gangster rap, but it does occasionally rain in the city of angels and the underground Hip-Hop scene is a thriving one. It was there that Evidence made his name, as part of the legendary trio Dilated Peoples, alongside Rakaa Iriscience and DJ Babu. Starting with The Platform in 2000, the group released four well received albums that contained several hit singles, including the Kanye West assisted smash “This Way.” 

 

Away from his crew Evidence has worked with everyone from DJ Premier to Dr. Dre-protogé DJ Kalil on both ‘The Weatherman’ & ‘Cats & Dogs’ not to mention alongside The Alchemist on ‘Lord Steppington’. With a new album coming soon Evidence makes a rare solo visit to London for this not to be missed show.
