Blackalicious at The Pig

. September 1, 2015.

Blackalicious has been making boundary-pushing records since 1993. By now, they’re hip-hop legends. Gift of Gab—MC extraordinaire and poet—twists his lyrics with a carefree, syncopated confidence. And his positive lyrics always contain a message. Chief Xcel’s beats tread the same funky, lighthearted waters. Melodica, the group’s debut album, will be reissued digitally for the first time—originally released exclusively on cassette. Melodica contains “Changes,” an unreleased cut produced in part by DJ Shadow, who joins forces with Blackalicious producer Chief Xcel to offer dusty drum loops and subtle, textured samples that offer a glimpse into much of Shadow’s later work.
