Cats & Dogs is the second studio album by American rapper Evidence, his first release since signing with the Minneapolis based label Rhymesayers, released on September 27, 2011. The album won 2011 HHUG Best Album of the Year award.
The first single from the album, To Be Continued..., was not initially intended to be included on the album, but due to a positive response upon its leak by DJ Premier on Sirius' HipHopNation, the song was included.
An interesting point about the track list is that there is no track 13. Ev speaks on it: "There is no track 13 on purpose. The first line of To Be Continued starts “10 commandments, 24 hours, the 13th floor was missing from the towers.” The Masons, any buildings built by them leave the 13th floor out. 13 is not just a lucky number, but an unlucky number too. People use it both ways. For me to leave it [the 13th track] blank and then explain why in the first line of the next track [To Be Continued] to me is genius. I don’t think there’s ever been a missing 13th track on an album, ever."
