In Hip Hop by Nick Russell

Video: Dilated Peoples – Good As Gone [+ Europe and USA tour dates]

Another year and another Dilated Peoples album for hip hop lovers to enjoy. The Los Angelites have been dropping heat on the mic for over two decades now and they are still going as strong as ever. Their new album ‘Directors of Photography’ is due for release on the 12th August and the first single from the record ‘Good as Gone’ is in true old school hip hop style.

The beat from Premier is a stripped down loop, reminiscent of the soundtrack to many a horror film of the 1980’s and it allows Rakaa and Evidence to shine, as usual with some heavy lyrics and wordplay. The crew will be doing both a US and European tour supporting Jurassic 5 this summer, with the London leg of the tour being held this Saturday at the O2 Brixton Academy.

You can pre-order the album on iTunes here: http://bit.ly/DOPitunes and grab tickets for the London show here. Full tour dates across Europe and USA below.
