After a Long Hiatus, Welcome Back Dialated Peoples

I’ll admit, when I saw Dialated Peoples featuring Aloe Blacc, I did a triple take. The first reason being, it’s been seven years since DJ Babu, Evidence and Rakaa banded together to create music together. The second reason, I have yet to hear Aloe Blacc contribute to a Hip Hop track. All elements combined piqued my interest in a real way.

After listening to the track, I was whelmed. Not over-whelmed or under-whelmed, the track is a really listenable Hip Hop track, which hard to come by these days. Aloe Blacc sounded at home singing the hook too, which was heartening. If you’re a fan of real Hip Hop that doesn’t concern itself with commercial viability, my suggestion is to catch up on the Dilated Peoples discography. In particular, my favorite track of theirs is No Retreat featuring B-Real of Cypress Hill. Word has it, the Dilated Peoples have an album coming out soon. Keep an ear out for Director's of Photography, it'll be in a store near you on August 12th...#ShowMeTheWay
