With their third full-length release, Blackalicious has produced a record of such sonic depth and lyrical ambition that it can proudly stand alongside the work of Bay Area funk fathers SLY STONE and SHUGGIE OTIS, or hip-hop classics like OUTKAST’s Aquemini and THE ROOTSThings Fall Apart. But The Craft is not nostalgic for some “golden era” that never existed; it surges past 2002’s breakthrough Blazing Arrow into worlds Blackalicious’ adoring fans have been waiting for them to explore.

“While some might argue that hip-hop groups’ experimentation with various musical genres pulls them away from their hip-hop roots, The Craft stands as an example that it is possible to successfully branch out while keeping the roots of your culture alive. Experimentation aside, Blackalicious can still strike that b-boy stance as their work continues to reveal them as one of hip-hop’s most innovative and talented tandems.“- Pop Matters
