Back in the day when Evidence and Alchemist were just teenagers, before they had status and before they had pagers, the two MC/producers bonded over their common interest in weed, women, and hip-hop music.

Now, years later they've joined forces as Step Brothers and put out their first full-length as a duo, 'Lord Steppington' one of 2014's best rap releases thus far. "It's like the blackest album ever done by two white people," says Evidence. The Dilated Peoples MC and Alchemist spoke to The Boombox's Timmhotep about 'Lord Steppington', the time Alchemist and Scott Caan almost signed to Ice Cube as kids, Evidence's invisible friends and more.

Watch the the first part of our interview with Step Brothers above and stay tuned for part two this week.
