It's been a minute, but what can I say? Twas the holiday season and my girl got me an Xbox for Xmas, so I've been off fighting the zombie apocalypse, rescuing humanity from intergalatic threats and generally sitting on my ass for the last 6 weeks. Anyways, I've been back to finishing up ripping my hip hop doubles so we're gonna go back into time and visit some prime mid-90s LA rap. Now, Defari is not the biggest name in raps, but this was during an exciting time in the LA rap scene. We had Cut Chemist and Jurassic 5 just starting to emerge and blow up, Beat Junkies were in full swing and starting to take over the airwaves, and the whole Project Blowed scene was on fire. Lootpack, People Under The Stairs...it was a good time to like raps. Enter Evidence and the Dilated Peoples extended family. I actually got this from Defari himself, totally down to earth dude, and was working as a teacher at the time as well. This is one of my favorite Evidence beats before he got boring to my tastes, so hopefully you'll enjoy it too.
