Evidence sits down with HipHopDX and talks about production with Actions Bronson, Sean Price and Vince Staples.
“Vince Staples is dope. I didn’t really try to hook up with him. I just met him at Alchemist’s crib one day and we caught a vibe,” he shares. “It’s crazy. It’s kind of like he’s molding the sound of his album around it a little bit, which is great. I love when stuff like that happens naturally. I’ll keep working with him.”
Working on production opened a whole new chapter for in Evidence’s career. It has allowed him to venture out and work with many artists who he has never worked with before.
“Outside of this, I have a lot of current beats that are representing where I am currently. Stuff on Green Tape is old. Like I said, I still think it has personality but that’s not a reflection of where I am today. Where I am today is working with a lot of new cats and a lot of people I came up with, as long as the energy is good.”
Ev has even been working on a collaboration with famous street wear brand, Diamond Supply.
“I just got a collaboration coming with Diamond, which is dope. We’ve been talking about it for years. He [Nicky Diamonds] picked a bunch of images and he made a shirt with a montage of a bunch of them. Then, we’re gonna do three other shirts with different images and then maybe a couple of little surprises to come with it.”
