With his unmistakable baritone voice and 6-and-a-half foot charm, Chali 2na has established himself as one of hip-hop’s preeminent and most charismatic personalities. He’s also garnered renowned praise as a visual artist across a wide spectrum of canvases.
Most known for co-founding music groups, Jurassic 5 and Ozomatli, Chali released his debut solo album “Fish Outta Water” in 2009. Since then, he has toured the world 10 times over with his 3-piece band known as the House Of Vibe.
Breathing new life into his musical upbringings, in 2013 he embarked on a career defining mission called “Against The Current”, a music + art project that combines a 5-part series of genre bending EPs with a coffee table book featuring original artwork and photography from Chali himself.
Chali’s reputation as a Hip Hop Legend continues to build momentum with his artwork, voice-over work, and an increasing variety of performance collaborations. Most recently he joined forces with UK Producer, Krafty Kuts and is currently performing as a featured guest MC on tour with Slightly Stoopid this summer.
