The latest chapter in rap’s continuing love affair with the Beatles comes via Evidence’s I Don’t Need Love. Although the project was not initially intended to leak, the Dilated emcee has embraced it and spread the free download for public consumption. Following in the footsteps of Danger Mouse’s The Grey Album, Evidence’s record is a unique mash-up of two very disparate styles highlighted by the soulful opener “Because.” The production on the nine song outing employs the Beatles’ vocals as instruments unto themselves. Guest shots on I Don’t Need Love include Rakaa, Oh No, Fashawn and a hilarious cameo from Dirt Nasty on the hidden track. Look out for Evidence’s Rhymesayers debut Cats & Dogs in 2011.
