StayUp.News editor-in-chief Roberto E. Alejandro recently sat down for a phone conversation with Evidence (above, in a courtesy photo), the west coast Hip-Hop legend and member of Dilated Peoples, for a discussion about his new album, Weather or Not, which will be released on January 26th via Rhymesayers Entertainment. In our conversation, Evidence touches on how Weather or Not fits into the overall arc of his solo efforts, seeing his mother resurrected in his first son, and the gentrification of Venice Beach, where he grew up.
