    Nobody [RECOIL Remix] with Evidence

    I didn't know that Black Squirrels were rare - not until EV told me that they don't have black squirrels in California. EV had seen a program about the black squirrel on the Discovery channel and was really surprised to see one for the first time in person. I guess when you see something everyday it doesn't seem unique at all - this is the kind of stuff we talked about the first time we all met. Evidence is an interesting guy. He was in town on tour with Little Brother at the time when we first hung out. Bronze had met him earlier that year as EV had started working on a solo project - discussing beats - and found that they had both been in touch with DJ Khalil with whom put in a good word. Ev had heard Bronze's beats and agreed to do a track with us on the strength of them - so when he was in Toronto, we got him in the studio as planned, picked him up only to go work on a joint that we'd been crafting with him for a couple of months over the phone and online - something we were excited to play for the label at the time - and we knew we needed something like this for the project. Not the most original concept per say, rap about rap, but something personally historic, that relied on a consistency in delivery between every rappers angle - the early days, the firsts. Our verses were done and recorded, and I thought EV had written his verse already, but when Bronze put the beat on, EV talked about how much he was looking forward to writing to it - and then proceeded to knock a verse out like only a writer of his caliber can, on the spot, staying true to our concept of the song for the whole 16 - asking us what we thought of his last 4 bars before throwing to Rakaa. Shit was fire - and clearly cemented the Brotherhood we now have with EV. What was it like when you first started rapping? An honest question that helped to create "NOBODY" - the song that sorta started all of our west coast collaborations for Notes - the song that led to becoming real family with Dilated - opening the door for us to do more with EV, Rak & Babs, and of course Fash - It was the genisis for our tours and sessions with Dilated and Babu here in Canada - as well as more joints with the Dilated family yet to be released - shouts to EV & ALC.

    What you hear now, is the updated version of NOBODY - THE REMIX -- a remix like only Book & Bronze can produce.
