Blackalicious is an American hip hop duo from Sacramento, California made up of rapper Gift of Gab (born Tim Parker) and DJ/producer Chief Xcel (born Xavier Mosley). They are noted for Gift of Gab’s often “tongue-twisting”, multisyllabic, complex rhymes and Chief Xcel’s “classic” beats.
The pair have released three full-length albums (1999’s Nia, 2002’s Blazing Arrow and 2005’s The Craft), and have been described as “one of the most popular groups in the independent hip-hop scene.”. At a solo show in June, 2010, Gift of Gab announced that he and Chief Xcel were 7 songs into their new album, and hoping for an early 2011 release.
