Consisting of rapper Gift of Gab and DJ/Producer Chief Xcel, Sacramento based hip hop duo Blackalicious is one of the most respected acts to emerge from the genre’s 90’s west coast scene. The pair’s conscious lyrics and soulful production can be compared to artists like the Pharcyde and Jurassic 5, yet possess an eccentric, infectious songwriting style of its own. Blazing Arrow, Blackalicious’ acclaimed 2002 album, featured guest production from Questlove, DJ Shadow, and Cut Chemist, and is among the most celebrated works of the duo’s two decade long career

On Saturday, August 29th Blackalicious will perform at the Studio at Waiting Room. Tickets are $17 advance, $20 day of show, and can be purchased here.
