GIFT OF GAB from the acclaimed duo Blackalicious is often praised by critics for his often fast-paced, multi-syllabic, and complex rhymes. With 3 successful albums “Nia”, “Blazing Arrow” and “The Craft”, this California native has toured world wide and worked with top indie Hip Hop artists to bring tru-skool Hip Hop to the masses.
Allmusic says he is “one of the very finest MCs to ever pick up a microphone, “one of the best underground rappers in the business”, “his raps are jam-packed with internal rhymes, allusions, metaphors, ten-cent words, and amazing tongue-twisting feats of skill”, and he has been able to “redefine the art of lyrical technique”.
Peter Shapiro describes him as “a walking encyclopedia of MCing styles”,
Pitchfork Media refers to his “astonishing verbal dexterity and enunciation”,
Popmatters says he has a “nearly impenetrable reputation for style and innovation”,
and Stylus Magazine calls him “one of the top MCs in the game”
