The Herb­al­iser

EartH Theatre, Hack­ney

3rd August 2019

A one-off colossal meet­ing of two Hip Hop game changers

Hip hop duo, Black­a­li­cious burst out of the West Coast flip­side in 2000 with debut stu­dio album, Nia, which com­bined the lyr­ic­al dex­ter­ity of Gift of the Gab with  pro­du­cer, Chief Xcel’s incred­ible grooves. The album went on to make waves across the hip-hop com­munity and bey­ond, described by All­music as “an album that stakes the claim of Chief Xcel and Gift of Gab as not only the best pair of rap­pers in the under­ground, but also the best pair of pro­du­cers.”

Their pres­ence in the music fan’s cul­tur­al con­scious­ness hasn’t been long missed, with their impact being felt across the year’s, with moments such as Daniel Rad­cliffe’s rendi­tion of Alpha­bet Aer­obics on the Late Show run­ning up close to 100 mil­lion views online.

Fol­low­ing 2005’s The Craft, they returned with Imani Vol.1 in 2015 and between these, the pair have con­tin­ued to write, per­form and cre­ate over the 20 years since the release of their debut album. Now they take the oppor­tun­ity to look back onto where their career began, bring­ing a very spe­cial show to London’s favour­ite new hang out, EartH for the 20th anniversary of Nia.

Join­ing them for one night only are the end­lessly funky hip hop flows of The Herb­al­iser, per­form­ing live with a full 8‑piece band.

The Herb­al­iser  have been win­ning over fest­iv­al audi­ences far and wide for over a dec­ade. Their fas­cin­at­ing abil­ity to cre­ate time­less soul records one minute, then to delve deep into the dark, grit­ti­ness of Jazz, funk, and hip hop the next is not a skill that should be over­looked!

Togeth­er, these two hip hop game changers will deliv­er an unmiss­able even­ing for hip hop fans. This is a once in a life­time chance to wit­ness these mas­ters of the craft under one roof. Don’t sleep.
