Biography

Welcome to the Next Logical Progression. We've travelled far with Gift of Gab over the years. When we first heard the venerated Oakland emcee's voice with Blackalicious, it was a revelation—the opening salvo to nearly two decades of positive emanations, vivid storytelling, elastic rhymes and consistency through reinvention. Across three classic Blackalicious LPs, two praised solo ... Read more in Amazon's Gift of Gab Store

Not being familiar with Gift of Gab (or Blackalicious), I bought this album on the strength of Q recommending Light Years as a tune. Delighted I bought it as Escape2Mars is unlike anything else out there in hip hop just now.

While Escape2Mars is maybe funkier than the best Wu Tang Clan output, the bass and beats remind me of classic Wu. Gift of Gab's rapping is up there with the best (El Gifto Magnifico or Somathapeople poss the best examples on here) while the general innovation (Escape2Mars stands out with a variety of sounds coming together) and uplifting feel of the album make it a must have.

If you like the Wu and also TV On The Radio, I don't think you can go wrong here. Check the tracks Escape2Mars, Light Years, Somathapeople and Electric Waterfalls out to get an idea of the scope of this fantastic album.

I have been a huge fan of Blackalicious for a long time now and Gift of Gabs first solo album was an amazing listen from start to finish...........He's exceeded himself with this fantastic follow-up!!
From start to finish, this is an instant classic, with the most instantly likeable tracks which grab you from the get-go and take you on a most audibly delightful journeys through the mind of one of our most innovative MC's currently on the circuit to date.
I don't have the time to give a break down of each track, but trust me - I've been a loyal follower of hip-hop for over 20 years and this jumps to a high position in my favourites list!!
So check this out and you won't be dissappointed!

Gift of Gab, as you would expect to find him, funky tunes, not your purist hip-hop, but a good cd all the same.

Space Hip Hop 15 Jan 2010
By Kyle23 - Published on Amazon.com
Ever since 2004's 4th Dimensional rocketships going up Gab (Tim Parker)has went for a more futuristic sound. Whatever you want to call it,underground,experimental,alternative,or space hop this music shines over all mainstream spoon-fed garbage. This Album is tight.Favorite tracks so far,Escape 2 Mars,Rhyme Travel,Light years,Somathapeople,and Dreamin'(feat.Del and Brother Ali) Don't forget to check out "Dropping Science Fiction" with his new group "The Mighty Underdogs"

Gift of Gab: escape 2 mars 5 Nov 2009

I love gift of gab and this is one of the best albums hes put out since the blackalicious stuff. I didn't like is recent work as much but it is still better quality hip hop than most stuff out there. This album is awesome.

not really fellin it 5 Sep 2010
By hendu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
at first I thought this album would be great coming from the guy who just did fourth dimensional rocketships going up and at first i liked it but then i realized that although there where some pretty good songs on it there were a few terrible ones too. Spotlight, Electric Waterfalls, In Las Vegas, and the other version of Dreamin quickly became hard to listen to. So if your trying to decide between Escape 2 Mars and Fourth Dimensional Rocketships Going Up than you defiantly should get Fourth Dimensional Rocketships Going Up.
buy this album! 9 April 2010

The post office lost the first copy I ordered but Amazon made it all better by replacing it for free with over night shipping through ups. This album is SICK. Track 3 is now one of my favorite jams of all time! If you like your hip hop to have meaning behind the lyrics the Gift of Gab is a great place to start. Buy it!
Can't lose with this one 24 April 2010

Anyone who is a fan of Gift of Gab/Blackalicious will not be disappointed. Also if you are a fan of socially, universal or mind-conscious hip-hop or music in general. Be prepared to bend your ears, because, he is one of the best wordsmiths out there. It is not for the weak of mind.
