Watch: Evidence – “Falling Down”

Evidence‘s Cats & Dogs was perhaps one of the most criminally underlooked records of 2011, alongside personal favorite Phonte‘s Charity Starts At Home. I guess I’m not incredibly surprised as the steadfast Rhymesayer’s rapper is usually fairly reserved in terms of getting his music out there to his loyal and extremely tightly-knit fanbase. The hip-hop purist/producer/MC recently unleashed a new set of respectfully dark, brooding visuals for “Falling Down” directed by Todd Angkasuwan. You can check it out below.

Mixtape: Phonte – DJ Flash Presents The Best Of Phonte

Former Little Brother MC Phonte will be releasing his debut solo album, Charity Starts At Home, tomorrow (the 27th), which was produced by long-time friend and collaborator 9th Wonder (who is also releasing his new album, The Wonder Years, tomorrow). To make the wait a little easier to bear, Phonte has teamed up with DJ Flash to release a brand new mixtape, DJ Flash Presents The Best Of Phonte.

Here’s what Phonte had to say about the project:

“The Phonte mixtape to end all Phonte mixtapes. 70 tracks, 78 minutes, covering the past 10 years of my career all mixed and selected by DJ Flash.

For those who need a Phonte crash course, start here.

Thank you for listening. And if you’re a long time fan, thank you for re-listening,

Listen: Phonte – “Not Here Anymore (feat. Elzhi)”



North Carolina rap legend Phonte is set to release his first ever solo release Charity Starts At Home on September 27, 2011 through FE Music. The first offering off this new project is “Not Here Anymore (feat. Elzhi)” and is produced by 9th Wonder. Phonte and 9th made up two-thirds of Little Brother, highly regarded as one of the most prominent underground rap groups of all time, before the trio officially broke up in 2010. With 9th Wonder handling the production duties, Phonte and former Slum Village member Elzhi share the mic and drop some thought-provoking, conscientious rhymes. Give it a spin below.
