Gift Of Gab
and Chief Xcel's first new Blackalicous record in a decade – and to our ears, their finest since Blazing Arrow! For longtime fans, it's so gratifying to give a first listen and hear these guys still kicking it as fresh as ever. Gab
's breathless fast raps and more measured soul searching are at near peak level here, and Xcel's always soul, jazz and gritty funk steeped production style has never catered to contemporary trends, therefore is fully built to last. A very welcome return! Includes "Faith" with AMDE of
Watts Prophets, "Blacka", "Ashes To Ashes", "On Fire Tonight" with Myron of
Myron & E, "Escape", "Inspired By" feat Bosko, "I Like The Way You Talk", "Twist Of
Time", "The Blow Up", "Alpha & Omega" feat Latif, Lyrics Born, Monophonics & DJ D Sharp, "The Hour Glass" and more.
