Chali 2na - Fishmarket Part 2

In 2004 Chali 2na released the first Fish Market mix-tape and since then his legendary group Jurassic 5 have split up and he’s collaborated with the likes of Mos Def, Roots Manuva and Rusko. That collaborative spirit which he explored on the first part is retained on Fish Market Part 2, joining forces with DJ Dez Andres for a hefty slab of solid gold hip-hop. ‘FM2 Theme’ is a meld of stabs of guitar and cut-up vocals, while ‘Greezy’ sees fellow Jurassic 5 member Akil weighing in with all he has. The slightly Eastern sounding samples of ‘Across The Map’ recall Wu-Tang Clan, while J-Live does his thing on the chorus resulting in one of the best tracks on the record. Fish Market Part 2 is an immensely enjoyable collection of tracks from one of the most recognisable, and rarely heard, voices in hip-hop.
