[LISTEN] New Album from Blackalicious, ‘Imani, Vol. 1’

Imani, Vol. 1

Blackalicious, the duo of Chief Excel and Gift of Gab, release their first album together in 10 years called Imani, Vol. 1. This is the first release of a potential trilogy project from the group. Without surprise, Gift of Gab flexes his lyricism and does not disappoint as far as content goes. I was not as impressed with the hooks and overall production of this album. It just wasn’t on par with their earlier album Blazing Arrow which, in my opinion, exhibit’s the full potential that Blackalicious has. Not to detract from or negate the quality of Imani, Vol. 1, it is still a quality album and worth a listen.
