Evidence, who released Lord Steppington as Step Brothers with longtime friend and collaborator Alchemist, says he is ready to begin work on his upcoming solo album.

The emcee/producer/photographer made this known via Twitter yesterday (March 23). “Now That Dilated is done, Starting Next Solo Album!!! @rhymesayers,” Evidence said in a Twitter post.

As the announcement shows, EvidenceDJ Babu and Rakaa Iriscience have wrapped up work on their upcoming Dilated Peoples project, Directors Of Photography. The album, according to a separate Twitter update made yesterday, may be released around Summer 2014. 

In October 2013, Dilated Peoples spoke with HipHopDX about the upcoming album and the group dynamics.  

“I don’t think it’s friendship,” Evidence said at the time, speaking about Dilated Peoples. “I think it’s family at this point. Friends do friend shit, but we do more family shit. So, it’s like, so many years and so much history, it’s basically like part of your DNA. It’s a code that becomes written into you. What we do on stage as the three of us, or what we do in the studio, it’s been a longtime coming. So, yeah, there’s definitely a lot of things that didn’t happen overnight that jelled over time, but there was also a lot of youth in our beginning shit. So, a lot of the mistakes were great because of innocence that was behind it. There’s a difference between being young and inexperienced and being skilled and wise. We’re trying to take those energies and put it in the middle.
