Product Details


Chali's diverse tastes range from the blues he was raised on to the political gangsta' rap he loved, to the graffiti art he sprayed as a teenager-and they all flow from this album. A powerful and deeply personal body of work, Fish Outta Water is quite simply a life's worth of songs in the making. Boasting production from the likes of Jake One, Scott Storch, and Cut Chemist and collaborations with Damian Marley, Stephen Marley, Beenie Man, Anthony Hamilton, and Talib Kweli, the album feels like a new beginning of sorts for the artist who has successfully melded the bass-heavy bravado with his own life's story, and in doing so, creates art that's not only superb, it's important.

Chali, with his unmistakable, beloved baritone has firmly established himself as one of the most distinctive personalities, not just in hip-hop, but music in general. Only a select few can say they've rocked microphones in front of thousands at a sold-out arena in Tokyo with Jurassic 5, spit rhymes at Lollapalooza, appeared on two Van's Warped Tours and been backed by the Latin-tinged rock of Ozomatli. Chali recently appeared on Galactic's critically acclaimed release From The Corner To The Block and performed with the band for special sets at Bonnaroo and Jazz Fest.

Notorious for using his music as a platform to present social and political issues, Chali has established himself as an artist of substance. And like a true artist he doesn't allow himself to be pigeonholed into one genre or medium. He founded the activist salsa funk band Ozomatli, and even ventured into voiceover work which led him to a role in film playing the voice of Pup in the animated picture, Night Before Christmas.

With the varied musical, socio-cultural and geographical influences that have shaped him, Chali 2na's debut release offers not only new collaborations but also a melting pot of provocative lyrics and true artistry.

Comment: I'm not too familiar with Jurassic 5's music, so I don't know where the exact standard is. But overall I like the album, and I would recommend it to the hip-hop heads. Shout out to Anthony Hamilton representin North Cock-It-Back...

Comment: Damn I wanted to give my man some loot but I can't on this one... I agree with Dasem he is good on guest appearances but he can't really hold a whole album.... The production was really boring and it seems like he distanced himself from his J5 sound... Good mc but I'm not feeling this one..

Comment: i used to love chali 2na back in the jurassic days. I have to say this album is a bit of a disappointment. there is a couple rays of sunlight thru the clouds on this one but for the most part the production and lyrics are pretty boring and played out.
