Evidence released his solo debut in 2007 with The Weatherman LP. He followed that release with The Layover EP in 2008 and embarked upon a rigorous tour schedule to build a stronger fan base.
“This is the most natural move I could have made to further the evolution of my career, while maintaining my identity and passion for the music, Evidence told AllHipHop.com in a statement. Rhymesayers has a proven track record of being focused and dedicated to their artists and Im excited to be a part of that.
In addition to working on a project with The Alchemist, Evidence will hit the road with Brother Ali on the Fresh Air Tour.
