Blackalicious Emcee Gift of Gab to Release New EP and Drops 25 Seconds of New Song

Great news for hip-hop nerds today. One half of Blackalicious and one third of The Mighty Underdogs, Gift of Gab, will have a new EP for his fans to rock to in April. Titled Rejoice! Rappers Are Rapping Again!, the project brings it back to the days of Rakim and Big Daddy Kane, as Gift of Gab explained to HipHopDX. It seems like part of the inspiration for the new music is the conversation around artists like Lil Yachty since they’re arguably not as “lyrical”: “With this new slew of music I am doing, it’s almost like I’m rhyming for other rappers.”

If you revisit any of his previous work, you can tell that Gift of Gab is an adroit and dynamic emcee. And to prove that he’s still got it, he’s created a new Soundcloud account with a snippet of a new song from Rejoice! Rappers Are Rapping Again!. The 25 seconds, albeit short, are teeming with punchlines and flow variations. Check out “It’s Just Practice” below.

You can get the full version of “It’s Just Practice” on Gab’s site once you sign up for his newsletter.
