Evidence is set to embark upon an European tour next month, information he is announcing exclusively through HipHopDX.
The tour is scheduled to begin July 4 at the Make the Hood Look Good Festival in Aarau, Switzerland and conclude July 16 at the Fresh Island Festival in Island Of Pag, Croatia. The full itinerary is below.
“I want to build a pool in my backyard,” the Los Angeles rapper and producer says jokingly in an exclusive statement to HipHopDX. “I’ve worked hard and I deserve it. Support the ‘Evidence Needs A Pool Fund’ and come out to the show. I have something on stage that others don’t. After the show we can get pizza and talk about Gang Starr classics. See you soon.”
In 2014, Dilated Peoples, of which Evidence is a member with DJ Babu and Rakaa Iriscience, released its acclaimed Directors Of Photography album. Evidence also teamed with longtime collaborator Alchemist last year for the Step Brothers’ Lord Steppington project, which was named one of the “40 Best Rap Albums of 2014” by Rolling Stone.
Evidence is also working on a new solo album. It is slated to feature Aloe Blacc, Raekwon, Slug and Prodigy, as well as production from the Alchemist, DJ Premier and DJ Babu, among others.
