Dilated Peoples is an American hip hop group from Los Angeles, California. They achieved notability in the underground hip hop community, although they have had little mainstream success in the US, with the exception of the song "This Way", a 2004 collaboration with Kanye West, Xzibit, Chali 2na and John Legend appearing in the music video. They reached the Top 40 of the UK Singles Chart with two tracks, "This Way" and "Worst Comes to Worst
Dilated Peoples' debut album was hugely anticipated in the hip-hop underground, thanks to a handful of excellent singles and guest appearances that began several years prior. When it was finally released in 2000, The Platform thrilled some and mildly disappointed others.

Dilated Peoples waited to sign with a major label until they were sure that they would have absolute creative control and it shows on "The Platform. There is no doubting the positives on this joint: Evidence and Iriscience can rock it with anyone and Babu freaking rips it on the 1's and 2's. But the only letdown is that there isn't much that is innovative here. The best cut on the album is "Right On" which includes guest rappers The Alkoholics. With other stand out guests and great songs like the title track, "Annahilation", "Shape Of Things To Come" and "Guarenteed", The Platform is worth your time and money.
