In the Alibi’s current issue we interviewed Blackalicious rapper Gift of Gab. He was scheduled to headline a show this Wednesday for the ninth anniversary of Viny & Verses at Burt’s Tiki Lounge. Sadly, Phillip Torres, the founder of the free weekly hip-hop series says that Gab has cancelled this show and an entire planned tour of the Southwest due to health issues. As for this week’s V & V, a show will still go on, and DJ’s Intox, Shakedown and Dozer are scheduled to spin.

The voice behind Blackalicious blazes on
By Sam Adams
Don't let money change ya. That's the message of "Deception," arguably the most well-known and anthemic track by Bay Area duo Blackalicious. It's also a creed the group's vastly skilled, tongue-twisting MC Gift of Gab (née Timothy Parker) seems to have taken to heart. He’ll be headlining a show at Burt’s Tiki Lounge next Wednesday. The Alibi caught up with him in advance.
