Chali 2na

#sxsw #Chali2na


Chali 2na = MC. Musician. Actor. Painter. Renaissance Man.

Chali 2na has done it all. From his days growing up on the hardscrabble streets of Chicago’s south side, to his subsequent explosion onto LA’s burgeoning hip-hop scene, to his tenure as MC for seminal hip-hop group Jurassic 5, Chali epitomizes the portrait of a 21st century artist. Now swimming along like a "Fish Outta Water", Chali continues touring the World as a solo artist accompanied by a 3-piece band known as The House of Vibe. They bring a refreshingly powerful dynamic to the stage, separating him from the classification of your everyday 'Hip Hop' show. A funk-soul-jam infused set that can last up to 2 hours has been building a buzz among new audiences across the globe. In 2012 Chali plans to unveil an onslaught of new music in a series of EP's he's branding "Against The Current". The project will encompass and showcase each of the elements that make Chali the "Artist" that he is from the audio to the visual. Check out for a sneak peak!
