Blackalicious is an American hip-hop duo from Sacramento, California,[1] made up of rapper Gift of Gab (born Timothy Parker) and DJ/producer Chief Xcel (born Xavier Mosley).[2] They are noted for Gift of Gab's often "tongue-twisting", multisyllabic, complex rhymes[3] and Chief Xcel's "classic" beats.[4] The duo have released three full-length albums (1999's Nia, 2002's Blazing Arrow, and 2005's The Craft ). Their fourth LP Imani, Vol. 1 will be released on August 14, 2015.[5] Gift of Gab has stated that this album will be the first in a three-volume series to be released over the next two years.[6]
