Evidence - Good Times

Tags: Evidence
Producer:

Album:
Cats & Dogs

Long ago the group Dilated Peoples cemented their legacy as “underground” hip-hop legends after grinding it out on the road in between the release of all of their highly respected albums. Though the formula was simple, their skill and ability has given each member a lasting grip on the subterranean even as solo artists. Today marks the release of DP emcee Evidence’s solo effort, a Rhymesayers released project entitled Cats and Dogs, that gives his listening audience more of what they’ve come to expect – solid, fundamental hip-hop. Over an airy Statik Selektah beat, Ev raps about the Good Times. As every rapper grows older, thoughts about the past and journey from that past to get to the present can become a theme, and Good Times is one of Ev’s trips down memory lane. The title of the track isn’t tongue and cheek humor either, as the veteran emcee really does present a case for why he views things as being “glass half full.” Good Times is an iTunes bonus track that’s definitely a nice addition to an already dope effort by the West Coast stalwart. Along with an instrumental version, fans can purchase Cats & Dogs directly from DJBooth here.
