Blackalicious (The Gift of Gab & Chief Xcel) and Lateef the Truthspeaker





On August 12, 2015 I went to see Blackalicious perform at The State Theatre in St. Petersburg, FL.

As the show was ending, the group wanted to take a picture of themselves with the crowd behind them. I'm in the front wearing the blue and white striped shirt.

It was a poor choice of pen on my part as the autographs are very hard to read. Chief Xcel signed the front cover of his group's debut CD, Nia. The Gift of Gab signed the back of the booklet in the upper right corner. Lateef the Truthspeaker, who I wasn't aware was going to be there, also signed the back cover. He appears on track 13, Smithzonian Institute of Rhyme.
