They dropped two brilliant albums, "Nia" and my personal favorite, "Blazing Arrow" and the under appreciated but dope "The Craft" along with a few EP's.

Gift Of Gab is a fantastic rapper, has unbelievable skill, great lyrics, voice, everything and Chef Xcel has dropped nothing but bangers. I rarely see them mentioned here or indeed on a lot of hip-hop sites, but their easily one of the best duo's from the west.

Anyone who hasn't checked for them should really do so.

Just two of their better known tracks, but their material is best enjoyed listening to their whole albums.

Gift Of Gab's solo's were pretty good too, not on the level of Blackalicious, but still worth hearing.

lol @ animal cruelty..


And one of the best? Sure, Blazing Arrow is a personal classic to me..

There's quite a few WC acts I'd put above them though, so I'm talking maybe top 10 here..
