On 2005’s Disappear Here, the L.A. Symphony crew released their second project on Gotee Records. The man single from the album “Timeless” features DJ Rhettmatic on the cuts and production from Evidence of Dilated Peoples. Personal turmoil and a changing industry lead to an extended hiatus from the group as members concentrated on solo efforts. They dropped a mixtape Unleashed, via Syntax Records, a couple years later but this served as a reminder to fans as to what was not necessarily what is. All members have gone on to produce some excellent projects and continue to work together, leaving room for an eventual reunion. Pigeon John’s recent release Encino Man, features various members of the crew.
Evidence and Rakaa join forces with DJ Illnaughty, on some funky type hip-hop ish. Known for his work with clinically insane emcee Master Fuol, see Lyricist Lounge. Illnaughty is gearing up to release Melodic Chamber, soon on Kamikazi Airlines‘ record label soon. Stay tuned…..

Evidence’s new album Cats and Dogs is complete work, probably my favorite Rhymesayers release ever. Not that this is saying very much. Visuals for “Falling Down” provided by Todd Angkasuwan.
Ev enlisted Phonte, Blu, and Will.I.Am for this track from his Layover EP
