With his distinctive and widely beloved baritone voice, Chali 2na has established himself not only as one of hip-hop's preeminent and charismatic personalities, but has also garnered renowned praise as a highly respected artist across a myriad of mediums.
Today, he has announced his latest project, Against The Current, a 5 EP installment that will be released throughout 2012. Breathing new life into his musical history, the project's sound is heavily influenced by his history; from the blues music he was raised on and the hip-hop he produced as a member of Jurassic 5, to the urban-Latin music he created with Ozomatli and his love for performing live. Each EP will be a fusion of these experiences, and also include Chali's trademark spitfire rhymes. A trailer for Against The Current, featuring snippets from the project's first single and title-track, has been released today, and can be viewed here.
Fans can catch a preview of Against The Current this winter as Chali will be hitting the road for a nationwide tour (full routing below). Kicking off February 9th in Oakland, CA, the tour will encompass nearly 30 dates before wrapping in Austin, TX for a series of showcases at this years' SXSW Music and Film Conference.
