Evidence of Hip Hop in Boise 

Wednesday, Dec. 7, at Reef

Evidence, nee Michael Perretta, is more than just a third of California's Dilated Peoples. His production know-how has led him to work with the Beastie Boys, Linkin Park and Swollen Members, and he received a Grammy for his work on Kanye West's College Dropout.

Evidence released Cats & Dogs, his second solo full-length, in September. While the album features his Dilated Peoples counterparts DJ Babu and Rakaa Iriscience, it also further sets him apart as a solo artist. His style is strictly West Coast, but his sensitive side occasionally shines through, which was evident on 2007's The Weatherman LP, on which he laments his mother's death.

Perretta is no stranger to reinvention. The street artist-turned-rapper, producer and now solo artist is the Renaissance man of Venice, Calif.
