Los Angeles residents Evidence and Rakaa met in the early ’90’s and became Dilated Peoples after connecting with DJ Babu. Their “3rd Degree” and “Work The Angles” releases got them a deal with Capitol Records and The Platform debuted to critical acclaim in 2000. “Worst Comes To Worst” is a single from their Expansion Team album produced by The Alchemist, mixed by DJ Premier and graced with an appearance from Guru. Neighborhood Watch was their third album and it was lead by the Kanye West produced single “This Way.”They showed their appreciation for DJ Premier with “DJ Babu in Deep Concentration” as an acknowledgement of the Premier song with the same name. 20/20 is their fourth album and it caused a minor controversy with MTV because of a scene in the video for “Back Again” where Babu wears a bulletproof vest. Directors of Photography will be their fifth outing and it is scheduled for a 2013 release.
