Hip Hop Duo Evidence & The Alchemist aka The Step Brothers Album “Lord Steppington”
Evidence born in in Venice, Los Angeles, California and Alchemist from Beverly Hills, California – together are the Step Brothers. If you’re like me, you’ve been looking forward to a full-length collaboration from these two LA rapper / producers since Evidence dropped The Layover EP back in 2008, where they combined like Voltron to bring us the banger “So Fresh (Step Brothers)”. Or before that, in 2007, when ALC laced EV with a handful of serious jams on The Weatherman LP. When Alan was producing classics like “Worst Comes to Worst” feat Guru & “Live on Stage” for Dilated Peoples in the early 2000’s. Man, look… this has been a long time coming, and you better believe it does NOT disappoint!
Producer / emcee Alchemist handles the bulk of the production as expected, but Evidence provides a grimy guitar backdrop for the third track “Byron G”. Overall, the sound of this album should make your neck snap, it knocks so hard. Both artists hold their own, and then some, on the M.I.C. among a slew of dope / familiar faces from their past work. Features include Domo Genesis, Scott Caan (!?), Styles P, Roc Marciano, Action Bronson, Fashawn, Rakaa Irscience, Blu, & Oh No.
The official “Step Masters” visual exemplifies that good ol’ fashioned brotherly competition. It’s hilarious, check out the video directed by Jason Goldwatch below. The debut album from Step Brothers, Lord Steppington is due to drop January 2014 on Rhymesayers Entertainment.
