High 5
Rhymesayers' finest - selected by Evidence
It was an official surprise, when Evidence announced his signing to Rhymesayers Entertainment around two years ago. Except for Slug’s guest verse on Ev’s ‘’The Weatherman LP’’ the ways of the Dilated MC and the label from Minnesota crossed rather sporadic to date. But with the Rhymesayers debut Cats & Dogs and the big U.S. tour with Atmosphere in the back, Evidence is by now an official member of the RSE family. Nevertheless, we are interested in how familiar Michael Perretta is with the impressive release catalog of his new label home and asked for his top 5 songs on Rhymesayers.

Evidence
The Bad Weather Man
Evidence is »the Weatherman«, the guy with the bad news, the dark images, the one who say it out loud what in Los Angeles otherwise left unspoken. With Cats & Dogs there’s a new solo album coming out.

Copywrite
God Save The King
Ohio-based MC Copywrite delivers sharp and smart rhymes over beats from RJD2, Bronze Nazareth or Marco Polo on his fourth official album God Save The King. Nevertheless not every track is a hit.

Apathy
Honkey Kong
Of course there are many tracks that feature good old hard-hitting battlelyrics and punchlines. But no joke, Honkey Kong is really a god rap album.

Evidence
The Weatherman LP
Less nostalgia, more willingness to take risks, becoming especially manifest in countless rolling synths-lines, without leaving his own neo-classical niche: hating Evidence has become uncool again.

The Smiths – The Queen Is Dead (1986)
Released in 1986, »The Queen Is Dead« is the culmination of the British band The Smiths’ career, which lasted only five years and four studio albums. It still sounds refreshingly idiosyncratic even after so long.
