Evidence’s New Video Is An Introspective Look Into One Of The Year’s Best Albums

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home, but we need your help to make it great. Please subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Evidence’s Weather Or Not was an early standout album this year, and it set a great standard. The Rhymesayers Entertainment release, Ev’s third solo affair, made Ambrosia For Heads“Best 15 Albums Of 2018.” Nearly a year old, the Dilated Peoples and Stepbrothers co-founder continues to deliver visuals to his acclaimed body of work.

“Raindrops” is a solo moment on W.O.N. Produced by Twiz The Beatpro, the song is a soliloquy from the MC/producer who often uses weather as imagery. “Wet checks, BMI’s, ASCAP’s / My rainy day money and made it past that / Another day to push ‘cause the night is long / And went through writer’s block just to write a song / To left right but don’t right a wrong I can see clearly now the rain is here / The pain is here, and I stayed sincere / All to say it’s the work in a day / And I’m all in my words that I word in a way,” he spits.

In the video, Mr. Slow Flow bares his thoughts in a dark video he directed with Johannes Roth (who shot the piece). The rollercoaster-like setting at night is a tonal fit for the lyrics. “We could call it water under bridges / Or we could not, it’s all in one decision / See the pyramids or see the prison / Keys open doors but the doors are off the hinges / How many got a friend that ain’t suspicious? / Heard before Nas that it was written / Got a lot but got a lot of livin’ / Missed the last call, it’s passin’ the bar / Thinkin’ ‘bout the past as I pass in my car / All to say it’s the work in a day / And I’m all in my words that I word in a way,” he says as he walks an artful stairway. The photographer’s visual has a slow and artful shift to bold color.

Weather Or Not features involvement from DJ Premier, Alchemist, Styles P, Rapsody, and Dilated. Earlier this year, Ev’ directed a video for Atmosphere, and reportedly has another forthcoming for Infamous Mobb member Big Twins.
