It's been a long time since anyone has heard anything from indie hip hop greats Gift of Gab and Chief Xcel, better known to the world as Blackalicious, aside from Gab's recent solo releases. But after 7 years since the group's last release The Craft in 2005, we have news of an upcoming release at the end of the month. Bad news it's not a new album. But awesome news, it's a re-release of the group's 94' debut EP Melodica which will be released for the first time digitally on 7/31 and will feature the bonus track, "Changes" co-produced by the legendary DJ Shadow.
So all in all, we see this as a win-win for Blackalicious fans out there and hopefully we resurfacing of the group, we hope to get a new record in the near future. Check out the bonus cut in the player below.
