Stream Dilated Peoples’ ‘Directors Of Photography’


Dilated Peoples are back. It’s been eight years since the crew put out a project together, with their last being 20/20 in 2006. Now, Evidence, Rakaa and DJ Badu are back with Directors Of Photography, which will be their first release as group on Rhymesayers. The album features guest appearances from Vince Staples, Aloe Blacc, Catero, Sick Jacken and Krondon. There’s also a major bonus track called “Hallelujah” that Evidence wanted us to pay particular attention to when he came through the XXL offices yesterday. “There’s a bonus track on iTunes that not everybody is aware of featuring Rapsody, Fashawn, Domo Genesis, Action Bronson and Vinny Paz,” he says. “We don’t have a lot of guests on the album, but we stacked one on that. It just felt right to make it a bonus thing. When we did the bigger picture, the last song felt like a good place to stop.”

Listen to the album in its entirety over at Pandora.
