With a new album titled Unlearning Vol. 1 dropping in June, underground legend Evidence delivers a new single and video titled “Pardon Me”.
Directed by Stephen Vanasco, the music video follows Evidence as he takes a drive through the Santa Monica Mountains to clear his thoughts. Stopping for a smoke, Evidence delivers contemplative verses as day fades to night: “Nothing corporate / incorporate what I learned and pay the mortgages / never forfeiting / or forbidding what the greatness of my aura is / I’m orbiting / my son gave me more living…”
Unlearning Vol. 1 was announced on April 23 along with the lead single and music video, “Better You.” Due out June 25, the fourteen-track effort pairs Evidence’s own production with that of The Alchemist, Nottz, Sebb Bash, Animoss, Mr. Green, V Don, Daringer, Khrysis and EARDRUM (QThree), showcasing Evidence’s uncanny ability to collaborate with a wide range of producers and still deliver a cohesive album. A small but powerful cast of guest appearances decorate the album’s soundscape, with Boldy James, Conway The Machine, Fly Anakin, Navy Blue, and Murkage Dave each holding their own alongside Evidence.
