Blackalicious
Blackalicious
In a hip-hop career that has stretched nearly 20 years, Blackalicious has earned respect the old-fashioned way–rising through honesty, commitment, and artistry. 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
Pure Powers
Pure Powers
Pure Powers is an independent hip hop artist originating out of West Sonoma County, California. Much of his youth was spent on the island of Maui, in and around the southside town of Kihei. After a decade of live performing throughout Hawaii and Northern California, the full length LP, "My Album", is slated for independent release in summer 2014. A long time collaborator of Hawaiian hip hop collective Kamehameha Projects, Pure's album documents a lifelong passion for hip hop culture, community, and roots music. The album features pioneers of the California underground, such as Scarub of Living Legends, Ellay Khule of Project Blowed, and Kirby Dominant, while also showcasing the talents of established emcees such as Nohokai, Iamae, Kapu, Vocab Slick, Spends Quality, Wordsmiff, Aerin Monroe, and Dublin of Shotgun Wedding Quintet. Pure puts it all on the line for his high energy live performances which have recently seen him sharing the stage with Gift of Gab, Aceyalone, Pep Love, PSC luckyiam, The Grouch, Casual, The Alcoholics, Cali Agents, Rappin' 4tay, Wildcard, Sole from Anticon, and more.
