Blackalicious: Melodica

Posted by on Wed, Oct 19, 2011 at 2:36 PM

Now I like much of Blackalicious catalog, but my introduction to it was the 1994 Melodica EP. Here is the only track I can find a video for from it, and my CD copy has long since been lost. There's a wonderful track on it called "40 Ounces for Breakfast" that I really wish I could find. The rudimentary beats and hyper-mellow delivery and sharp rhymes grab me more than later-career stuff.

Blackalicious are at Showbox at the Market Saturday night. Tickets here.

h/t: Marcus L. in 1994

A 40 oz for breakfast really does get you through the day.

Hm. Always had this saved as "Swan Lake" back in the napster days.

The song is "Swan Lake," the EP is Melodica.
