Blackalicious is an American alternative hip hop
duo. Gift of Gab (Tim Parker) and Chief Xcel
(Xavier Mosley) met at John F. Kennedy High School in 1987 in
Sacramento, California. They formed Blackalicious in
the early 1990s and released their first recording, "Swan
Lake", on Solesides Records.
In late 1997, Solesides became Quannum Projects and in 1999 Blackalicious released the A2G EP, which served as a precursor to their debut full length album, Nia, released the following year. This was followed by a major label contract with MCA Records and the release of the critically acclaimed album, Blazing Arrow, in 2002.
