Grab an umbrella, because the Weatherman’s ready to return in 2018.
After Evidence popped up earlier this year with the single “Throw It All Away,” the Dilated Peoples member has reemerged to announce a new album titled Weather Or Not.
He also shared a video for “Jim Dean,” a new single produced by Nottz and featuring cuts by DJ Babu.
Ev’s third solo LP and first since 2011’s Cats & Dogs is scheduled to drop on January 26, 2018, via Rhymesayers Entertainment. Fans last heard a full-length project from the West Coast veteran in 2014 when he released Lord Steppington, a collaborative album with Alchemist, and reassembled with Dilated Peoples for the group’s Directors Of Photography LP.
Weather Or Not features guest appearances by Slug, Rapsody, Styles P, Alchemist, Rakaa Iriscience, Khrysis, Krondon, Defari, Jonwayne, Mach Hommy and Catero.
