Evidence Drops A New Instrumental Album. Check Out 26 Beats From A Proven Master.

Nearly 25 years into his career, Evidence’s music continues to get better and better. That says a lot for an artist who took audiences by storm with the Dilated Peoples across several albums since the late 1990s. However, in the solo department, releases like last year’s Weather Or Not offer tremendous depth to the man and the artist. It was voted the best LP of 2018 by the readers of Ambrosia For Heads.

Although Evidence is “Step Brothers” with Alchemist, he’s made incredible songs with DJ Premier, Kanye West, and Kutmasta Kurt (to just name a few), Evidence is a highly-accomplished producer. Outside of his crew, E-V has made songs for ‘Ye, Raekwon, Sean Price, Westside Gunn, and Vince Staples. In the last month, Evidence laced a surprise Brother Ali album (Secrets & Escapes), which also packs an exceptional feature across the two Rhymesayers label-mates.

In the midst of that, a recent Step Brothers two-pack (Burnt Tree), and touring (dates embedded below), Evidence releases Squirrel Tape Instrumentals Vol. 1. The 26-song Instrumental Hip-Hop album (“beat tape” doesn’t quite seem to do it justice) follows in the tradition of Evidence’s Tape series (where he released batches of beats as Yellow, Red, Purple, and Green) between 2004 and 2008.
