Evidence announced yesterday (February 24) that Dilated Peoples’ upcoming Rhymesayers Entertainment album, Directors of Photography, has been completed. The project is Evidence’s second album with Rhymesayers this year, an album that follows his work on Step Brothers’ full-length effort, Lord Steppington.
Lord Steppington, a collaborative effort between Evidence and Alchemist, was released in January and the project earned a four out of five in HipHopDX’s album review.
Directors of Photography is set to be Dilated Peoples’ first full-length studio album since 2006’s 20/20. The group spoke with HipHopDX about the upcoming album in October 2013.
“In this process, not that much has changed,” DJ Babu said at the time. “You’d be surprised how easily you fall back into your roles and understand where you fit in with each other. Being in the studio is definitely something that we love and something that we would probably do whether we had a Dilated album to work on or not. We’re like studio rats. Ev was definitely producing the shit out of this record. All of us, but Ev was really striving for a sound. We still are striving for a particular cohesive sound that we’re trying to get. Things have changed since we’ve been around, but we’re trying to walk a fine line between keeping it classic and pushing it forward…We’ve spent a lot of time sharpening our swords and I feel like Ev’s been leading us in that direction, to really try new things while still being us.”
