Moe’s Alley (1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz, CA) welcomes back Bay Area hip-hop greats BLACKALICIOUS on Saturday, September 21st, as they celebrate their 20 year anniversary. They will be supported by special guests Alwa Gordon and DJ Kikkoman.
In a hip-hop career that has spanned two decades, Blackalicious has earned respect the old-fashioned way; rising through honesty, commitment, and artistry. The American hip hop duo from Sacramento, California is made up of rapper Gift of Gab (born Tim Parker) and DJ/producer Chief Xcel (born Xavier Mosley). They are noted for Gift of Gab’s often “tongue-twisting,” multisyllabic, complex rhymes and Chief Xcel’s “classic” beats.
