[Editorial] Going Solo: 12 Artists That Achieved Group and Solo Success
Evidence of Dilated Peoples:
Evidence still has a way to go before truly capturing the acclaim of his Dilated People’s crew, but he is well on that path. Evidence has released two highly praised solo albums, with the last one coming on indie powerhouse Rhymesayers. He’s also fully embraced this rebirth of sorts, hitting the road hard with Atmosphere, playing festivals, and linking with other up and coming emcees. When it comes to making that transition, others would be well-served to follow Ev’s lead. I’d be also be a little remiss to not mention Rakaa and DJ Babu as other group members with solid solo careers. Rakaa has his own solo album to his credit, releasing Crown of Thorns via Decon last year. Meanwhile, DJ Babu is on the fourth installment of his Duck Season album series and continues to DJ’s throughout the world, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Beat Junkies. He’s also producing bangers like this one for Closed Sessions.
