Blackalicious Poster

Blackalicious Performance and Q&A

Come see hip-hop group Blackalicious perform and get a chance to ask them about their music and career. Acclaimed for the sublime combination of rapper Gab's verbal dexterity and lyrical eloquence and producer X's bracing beats and distinctive soundscapes, Blackalicious has earned widespread respect, both inside and outside of the hip-hop community, for the wildly inventive, personally charged innovations of its first three albums, 1999's Nia, 2002's Blazing Arrow and 2005's The Craft.
