5.0 étoiles sur 5 You Will Be Claiming This to be Something-licious Just Like All the Other Hipsters 6 septembre 2008
Par M. Swinney - Publié sur
Format: CD
OK, like, this is really good music and where was I in the year 2000 when Blackalicious' "Nia" came out? I can answer that one friend. I wasn't listening to the best new music to come out that year back then friend. I wasn't cool. I wasn't hip. But you can become that by simply buying this album, boy!

Nevermind the band's name and its connection now to that annoying designer on Project Runway that keeps trying to come up with his very own little catch phrase by saying everything is something-licious. The forecast is looking good that the phrase won't catch on to the lexicon of pop language in America and you can get back to listening to Blackalicious in peace. That dude'll be voted off before you know it when Heidi lays down the smackdown.

When attempting to classify this band, I think of some of the older school innovative hip hop East Coast acts like, De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest. They kind of have that arty experimental jazz thing mashing up with its hip hop. They also have this ability to bring in seemingly disparate elements into the same song and pull it off as a coherent beat keeping you listening and your foot tapping as you are wearing that black turtleneck sweater feeling oh so street cool.

The feature track here is track 3, "Do This My Way." All the good ones are usually track 3 by the way. "I be the first ever Asian Astronaut / blastin' off, castin' off / The ties that bind like a smashed guitar /
Rode a mastodon out Jurassic Park / Chased by a fan in a Tyrannosaur mask / Travel the traffic cop Past the spot / Where the ostrich got across for the ocelot," so raps the Blackalicious and I tell you, you just don't get quality songs anymore featuring small Asian wild cats like the Ocelot anymore. What does it all mean? Who cares when it sound so funky fly fresh cool and leaves your toe tapping long into the night.

So if you missed out on the Blackalicious the first go 'round, don't walk, run to get this one to pop into your CD player or download some MP-whatever number they are on these days and become Blackalicious. Blast it from your speakers the next time all your family is over for a bar-b-que. You won't be sorry you did it when you witness your 70 year old Mom breaking, popping, locking, freestyling, and krumping with your 3-year old son and singing at the top of her god-given lungs, "I be the big, bad body rocking Bombay to boulevard bully back / better bring a bomb to the battlefield / bloody black beats bringing bottoms that boom / basically build barriers bewilder buffoons." Trust me, its worth the price of admission alone. ...mmw

5.0 étoiles sur 5 THESE GUYS ARE THE EPITOME OF HIP-HOP 9 novembre 2004
Par D.U.I. - Donnie Understands Intelligence - Publié sur
Format: CD
Gift of Gab, and Chief Xcel, met in High School, and soon after they displayed their talents to each other, they realized that they had something good going on and that they should do something about it. In the early 90's they formed a group, and did a few shows at night. They met fellow school mate ,and DJ extraordinaire, DJ Shadow, who knew Lyrics Born and Lateef, better known as Latyrx.

They all got together and loved the music that they all posessed, and decided on a name for the 5 of the them called the Solesides Crew. They formed a label, Solesides, and formed their groups, and solo careers, and after the Solesides label was dropped, they changed their name to Quannum Records, and the rest is history.

This group takes hip-hop on a whole new level, to beyond the boundaries of it's own form, and has created one of the best sounds, and albums to date in hip-hop. NIA, the debut full-length album, from the Bay Area's only concious group Blackalicious, stands as one of the most ferocious debuts in history. They demonstrate fun, intelligence, experience, challenge, and most of all, they saw the action around them.

They hide nothing, and let you know it. With a superb guest list on the album, consisting of Lyrics Born, Lateef the Truth Speaker, DJ Shadow, Nikki Giovanni, and Erinn Anova, this album shines like christmas lights on the tree in Times Square.

"Do This My Way" featuring Lyrics Born, captivate the humor, and complex witicisms brought forward by the duo.

"A to G" is part of the "ALPHABET AEROBICS" off of the A2G ep, and is a major ear treat for the album, and in concert.

"Cliff Hanger" is a track about mystic fantasies, and is rhymed like a perfectly well flowed fable. Great speed transfer in the middle of the track by Xcel, demonstrating the potion kicking in, and the twist ofthe story.

"Smythzonian Institute of Rhyme" is a great talent booster for both Gift of Gab and Lyrics Born, and both tshow the calibur, and why Quannum reigns supreme.

If I tell you anymore about the album, I'll ruin the rest for you. Buy it or whatever, but get it, that is all I can say . So I give this album, my official Fingerguy1 "PIMP" seal of approval. ----> []D [] []V[] []D

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Blackalicious, Medicine For Our Ears 10 mai 2003

"I be the first ever Asian astronaut
Blastin' off, castin' off
The ties that bind like a smashed guitar
Rode a mastodon out Jurassic Park
Chased by a fan in a Tyrannosaur mask"
----Lyrics like this could only come from Blackalicious! Songs on NIA range from strange songs like "Do This My Way" (The one at the top), to ferocious songs spitting fire on other MCs like "Trouble", to songs about the key to survival like "Making Progress". Several of the songs on NIA come from the A2G EP. Blackalicious(Gift of Gab and Chief Xcel) has made an album that gives off many messages and has cured our ears. This album is not perfect, it certainly has a couple of tracks that should be deleted, but overall, this album one of the best of all time. Gift of gab is a lyrical superman sent to save our brains from destruction. "Making Progress" is a song about how to the basics rules of life and that you need to just accept it.
"Can't develop biceps if you don't do curls
Can't achieve a garden if you never water your crops
If you never pay your dues then you don't get props
Can't eat a proper meal without cooking it first
Can't receive a paycheck if you don't do work
If it wasn't for the rain then the trees won't grow"
There are also songs about searching for the answers, like "If I May". This is an incredible song!
"You search for the answers outside
Refocus causin' time and time again, backslide
You've noticed times before the presence of that "I"
But never did submit to it and let it apply
Whatever be his will in this present life time
Or essence like mine
Know the blessings you might find
If you let your higher power inside
Emerge and apply to every single thing in your balance
You will truly find
Who you really are"
Other great songs include "Deception" a song about "Don't Let Money Change Ya!" with a catchy chorus that just include dee da da dee da da over and over again in a catchy tune. Another classic is "Trouble" which spits flames and injects venom into brain if you're a bad MC.
Many other tracks on the CD are incredible and if you do not own this CD then you have to buy this! If you like this then you'll like "Blazing Arrow" even more. Gift of Gab with Chief Xcel and DJ Shadow just can't lose!

One word...satisfying. Out of all the old school and underground albums I have, this definitely ranks as one of the best. Nia is absolutely incredible! Not only was this the best album of 2000 (beating out masterpieces like Common's "Like Water For Chocolate" and Talib Kweli's "Reflection Eternal") it may be the best hip-hop album so far this century.

I got "Blazing Arrow" first and was blown away, but it lost it's momentum in the latter songs and I didn't find myself wanting to listen to it often after putting it down. So a couple months later I take a chance on "Nia." SUCCESS! What a complete and inspiring masterpiece it is. You have got to get this now! Gift of Gab is at his most unparralled best on this album.

It's also way better than Gab's solo effort because Xcel just add so much soul backing Gab's conscious lyrics. Gab has so much flavor it's insane. He can go rapid-fast, slow it down, change his voice up, sing (that's right!) spit with a fire under him, and spit with the light shining upon his heart. So many good songs to choose from, really! You have got to check out "Deception," "Cliff Hanger," "Shallow Days," "If I May," "Making Progress," and "Sleep." Even the short intro and outro are great.

It may seem long with 19 tracks, but they are essential to getting different angles into Gab and Xcel's creative minds. When my sister first listened to "A to G," see asked me in the middle of it, "Is he going to do the whole alphabet?" No, but get this and you'll see what I mean! The only track to skip is "Smitsonian Institute of Rhyme,": clever title, sluggish execution, could have been left out. My favorite track is "If I May," I'm not sure why, but maybe because of the soulful chorus and and Gab heightens the urgency in his voice during the second verse. I love it. So will you. Don't waste your time reading all the other 5 star reviews because you should be leaving your place right now to go and find this masterpiece of artistic expression!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Beautiful Thing 18 juin 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: CD
This album is #2 on my best albums list-- in the company of, "I Phantom" Mr. Lif; "Moment Of Truth" Gang Starr; "The Best Part" J-Live; "Illadelph Halflife" The Roots; "Lets Get Free" dead prez; "Disposable Arts" Masta Ace; "Soon Come..." Blue Black & Asheru of Unspoken Heard; "Fantastic Damage" El-P; "ATLiens" OutKast. Most of these albums are sleepers-- but I'm lettin' you know the time, so don't sleep!
When I first heard Nia (which is Swahili for "purpose", an appropriate title), there was no denying it being a classic. Chief Xcell's beats range from simple but live, "Do This My Way"; to having a life of their own, "Trouble (Eve of Destruction)". Upon close listening, one should pick up on clever sampling & sounds, an array of positive, introspective, social commentary, and straight up dope lyrics. Gift of Gab should have more shine than he has now, period! As a fellow lyricist, he gets mad props from me. If hip-hop ain't your thing, this might just be an exception to your collection-- it's good music, which is the most important issue. All in all, Nia is (for some) relaxed, but not boring; uplifting, but not preachy or gimmicky. It's more than worth the money, which in todays 'drowning' music industry, is a rare thing. With Nia, you get quality AND purpose!
