Today, we announced the release date for Dilated Peoples’ debut on Rhymesayers, Directors of Photography. To coincide with the announcement, we launched the first video and single, “Good As Gone,” produced by the legendary DJ Premier. The new single serves as a re-introduction to Dilated Peoples.

Already well-known for their classic sound, they’ve been tirelessly honing their skills on solo projects since their last group offering. Together again, they’re set to deliver their best work yet.

The video, directed by Andrew Melby & Evidence, takes place in the sunny California desert and along the coast line. Visually, “Good As Gone” plays out like a barrage of Instagram-worthy frames and showcases their skills as Directors of Photography.
