Biography

There are 5 artists with the name Evidence.

(1) Evidence is a Rapper/Producer and a member of hip hop group Dilated Peoples

“Raised in Santa Monica til’ the divorce/six years old/I couldn’t see what was coming of course/the plan/ Mom bounced on Old Man/ then we moved to the Venice sand/ A young youth seen gangs first hand/ fake address for school/ two educations/ rich friends then back to my land.”- “Born in LA” - Evidence

Those bars, a nod to Raekwon’s verse from “C.R.E.A.M”, are from the L.A. anthem on Evidence’s solo debut album The Weatherman LP and paint the backdrop that catapulted him on the course that would shape his life and career.

Evidence’s affinity with hip-hop and the culture began in the early eighties, with his parent’s divorce and subsequent move from the affluent city of Santa Monica to neighboring Venice Beach. Raised by his single mother of Russian decent with his Italian father less and less in the picture, Evidence took solace in his new backyard where his favorite pastimes became break-dancing at the former Venice Pavilion and skate-boarding with the legendary Venice Z-Boys.

By the early nineties and in addition to becoming a well known graffiti artist, painting hip hop inspired hieroglyphics under the name “VANE,” a fateful move next door to QD3, son of legendary producer Quincy Jones, Evidence discovered his true calling.
