For the first time in long time. Jurassic 5 group member, legendary Emcee Chali 2Na hit the stage at a sold out Jazz Café.
Delivering a masterful performance from the second he touched the stage backed by the UK’s own DJ A Skillz.
I was impressed by how Chali blitz through 90 minutes of intricately written and passionately delivered track after track, literally word perfect.
Looking at the audience tonight Chali 2Na is a universally loved Emcee. His message is usually about celebrating Hip Hop Culture and positivity.
Chali pointed out a scar on the side of his head received from a near fatal car accident saying he’s lucky to be here and now he never takes anything for granted in life. You can tell that he put everything into this performance and was genuinely touched as he soaked in the adulation from the crowd.
An Unexpected highlight from this show was the appearance of Legendary UK Reggae Artist Tippa Irie coming onstage to perform a track with Chali before blowing Jazz Café crowd away with an incredible freestyle.
A personal highlight for me was the performance of a track called ‘Crazy’ where Chali flipped a Rick James sample got the chef kiss from me.
Overall I was really impressed with this Chali 2Na performance, definitely the best I’ve seen from him + the added bonus of seeing Tippa Irie as well as Chali asking me to sign his copy of the Connoisseurs Of Hip Hop: The Interviews Vol.1 (https://www.amazon.co.uk/
I gifted him which he’s also featured in.
