Remember Blazing Arrow from 2002? The Gift Of Gab released his solo* album a couple of months ago. Nothing on it comes close to the most brilliant, revolutionary-sounding tracks of Blazing Arrow, but its pretty good nonetheless.


Chali 2na of the Jurassic 5 is supposedly working on a solo LP too. Keep an ear out for that one.

*(Although really he just dumped Xcel for the album and got a couple of producers from Seattle to bring the noise in his stead.)

The lyrical skills are there as expected but the melodies aren’t as instantly appealing as “Blazing Arrow” or “Nia”.

If you really want to witness the full potential of Gift of the Gab, get ‘Trouble (Eve of Destruction)’ or ‘A to G’ on your headphones.
