Evidence & The Alchemist's Step Brothers Album To Feature Styles P, Action Bronson
Styles P and Action Bronson are confirmed to join Evidence and The Alchemist on their upcoming Step Brothers album
It's been a number of years since it was announced that Evidence and The Alchemist would be joining forces under the moniker Step Brothers. Now, in a recent interview with 2DopeBoyz, the Dilated Peoples emcees discusses his and the A-L-C's upcoming album together.
According to Ev, the Step Brothers' album Lord Steppington is completed and lined up for a release sometime in early 2013. He said that the duo's already enlisted the likes of Styles P, Action Bronson and Domo Genesis for the project.
"The album is pretty much done and we just signed a deal. The deal's finished, I got my check," he said. "I was gonna tell everybody who we signed with the other day, we were going to put out a little video but we didn't get a chance because [Alchemist] and Prodigy had a show and they were rehearsing or whatever. But yeah, that's it; Step Brothers is official, the album title is set and the label is on…we've got some dope people [on the project], we've got Domo Genesis on it, we got Styles P on it so far, Action Bronson's on it. Alchemist's done all the beats on it so far, I did one…once we master it and I get the product in, then we'll give you date…but until we announce it, I'd say early 2013."
Evidence also discussed Dilated Peoples' upcoming fifth album Directors of Photography. He said that he, Rakaa Iriscience and DJ Babu have been working diligently on the album, and that they're trying to push their musical boundaries with the project.
"Directors of Photography is the next Dilated album. We're focusing a lot on that album, that's what I'm doing everyday pretty much," he said. "Dilated, it's gonna be our first album in six years, so it's important that we nail this right now. I think we've bee, going as far as you can go, like making sure we're pushing the boundaries and testing ourselves before it becomes not fun. We're really going to the edge, then it's like, if we go any further, we're going to be having a bad time."
