About this show

From Northern California, Blackalicious are MC The Gift of Gab and DJ/Producer Chief Xcel who distilled fifteen years of fanatic b-boyism and soulful introspection into last year¹s masterwork, Blazing Arrow. Ranging from verbal funk-burners and battle-rhyme rippers, to expertly crafted future-soul and convention-crushing experimentation, Blazing Arrow moves from strength to strength on Chief Xcel's studio wizardry and the Gift of Gab's quicksilver tongue. The record also features appearances from a star-studded list of friends and admirers, including Zach De La Rocha (formerly of Rage Against The Machine), Ben Harper, ?uestlove (The Roots), Chali 2Na and Cut Chemist (Jurassic 5), Rakaa and Babu (Dilated Peoples), Gil Scott-Heron, Tracey Moore (Jazzyfatnastees), Money Mark, Sean Lennon, and Miho Hatori (Cibo Matto).
