Gift of Gab, Speaker Minds, Bad Habitat and Dirty Revival Collective


Alhambra Theatre (map) Southeast
Wed., April 9, 9 p.m. 2014 All Ages


Some know Timothy Parker, AKA Gift of Gab, as the voice of Bay Area rap duo Blackalicious, while others know him for his semi-fast, instantly recognizable flow. Mr. Gab has participated in numerous collaborations; you can hear him rhyming alongside Chali 2na, performing with Mr. Lif, and on a record with Del the Funky Homosapien. Gift of Gab is a founding member of the Quannum Projects collective, one of the most successful indie hiphop labels to come out of the Bay Area. Not to mention that Blackalicious is great, with songs that are more melodic and structured than those of your average DJ/emcee duo; the choruses are often sung, and Gift of Gab's words are thoughtful and evocative. It's hard not to bask in the glow of Gab's mad flow. ROSE FINN
