After an eight-year hiatus, L.A. rap collective Dilated Peoples
will return this August with their full-length follow-up to 20/20
, entitled Directors of Photography
. After ending their four-album tenure with Capitol, Evidence, DJ Babu, and Rakaa Iriscience teamed up with acclaimed Minneapolis-based independent hip-hop label Rhymesayers in early 2013 to assemble their latest, which we can now preview in their new music video for the hard-hitting track "Good As Gone".
According the the new song/video, Rhymesayers had little, if any, dust to sweep off the trio after their lengthy absence. With DJ Premier providing a sinister-hooked, minimalist beat cut by Dilated member DJ Babu, these boys are flowing like its still 2001.
Directors of Photography
is due out August 12th on Rhymesayers
