Biography

Los Angeles, United States (1992 – present)

Dilated Peoples is a group that has achieved great fame in the community, although their only real mainstream success was the song This Way, a 2004 collaboration with Kanye West.

DJ Babu (from the DJ crew Beat Junkies), Evidence, and Rakaa joined together in 1992 in Los Angeles, CA and released Third Degree and Work The Angles, which were quickly established as favorites in the underground scene and among rap critics. They eventually signed to Capitol and in 2000 released The Platform, to more critical acclaim. Their sophomore set Expansion Team was released in 2001, led by the Alchemist-produced single Worst Comes To Worst, which sampled from Mobb Deep’s Survival of the Fittest. Their third album, Neighborhood Watch, was released in 2004 and debuted at #55 on USA’s Billboard 200 Albums Chart. In addition to the Kanye West-produced single, This Way, it also featured the single Who’s Who?, which was also included as a track on the Need for Speed: Underground and SSX 3 soundtracks, and peaked at #35 on the UK Singles Chart.

In 2006, they returned with the single Back Again, produced by The Alchemist. The trio’s fourth album, 20/20, debuted on February 21, 2006.

In 2007 they released The Release Party. This package included a feature-length documentary on DVD as well as EP featuring new songs and remixes. The film, released through Decon, is a celebration of the release from their contract with Capital.

    Underground or not this shit is still dope, "The Platform" is a top notch album. Not to mention there were less people who knew about Dilated Peoples back in the late 90's. The internet allows us to listen to classics we missed or didn't experience. Then again I was born in 1993.
