In a hip-hop career that has stretched past a decade, 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.
