Chali 2na of Jurassic 5’s new album, Fish Outta Water:

Chali 2na – Fish Outta Water

I’m really diggin Lock … Down with Talib and Don’t Stop with Anthony Hamiliton.

When J5 first came out, they earned a lot of fame with both underground and mainstream crowds.  I was surprised one day to hear a group of asians bump J5 in their Honda Civic…I didn’t know whether to be proud or embarrassed, but hey, it’s all good.

A lot of these tracks have been released before, but I think Chali is the best of the J5 crew.  He has a very unique voice, sorta old school and slightly soulful.  Sorta like a 40 yr old uncle spittin rhymes on the back porch.

If you’re a bit skeptical, check out this music video:
