I have been meaning to write this up for some time but unjustly kept forgetting to do so. Tim Parker aka Gift of Gab released Supreme Lyricism a limited-edition mix record in July. Blackalicious is one of my favorite hip hop tandems. Growing up on the westcoast and enjoying the conscious rhythms of the bay area scene, Blackalicious' A to G was one of my first forays into hip hop ("Deception" remains one of my favorite all-time hip hop tracks). Gab's first solo release 4th Dimensional Rocket Ships Going Up was alright but it left me wanting more.

Supreme Lyricism was released independently by Mr. Parker through his website and several other spots (notably The Giant Peach). The disc features original tracks along with songs previously released as b-sides or on compilation albums. The record was produced by DJ Icewater.

Mp3: Gift of Gab featuring Mr. Lif - "Lay it down"
Mp3: Gift of Gab featuring Versastyle - "Greatness"

Buy it: Like I said this is independently released so be sure to pick it up. With purchase you automatically get entered into the raffle. Two individuals will be randomly selected to be flown to the Bay Area to spend a day with the Gift of Gab, stay in a Four-Star Hotel,meet other members of the Quannum Collective, and get the entire Quannum catalog. Not too shabby for 11 bucks.
