Biography

Welcome to the Next Logical Progression. We've travelled far with Gift of Gab over the years. When we first heard the venerated Oakland emcee's voice with Blackalicious, it was a revelation—the opening salvo to nearly two decades of positive emanations, vivid storytelling, elastic rhymes and consistency through reinvention. Across three classic Blackalicious LPs, two praised solo ... Read more in Amazon's Gift of Gab Store

Editorial Reviews

The Gift of Gab is a Hip Hop institution. From the breakout success of Blackalicious in the late 1990s and beyond as well as an impressive and lauded solo debut, he has built one of the most enduring coalitions of discerning music fans of most in the world of thinking man's Hip Hop. Escape To Mars is Gab's second fully realized solo record of his illustrious career. Guests include Brother Ali and Del The Funky Homosapien, and the record contains another progressive step in groundbreaking lyrical and structural delivery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Space Hip Hop January 15, 2010
By Kyle23
Format:MP3 Music
Ever since 2004's 4th Dimensional rocketships going up Gab (Tim Parker)has went for a more futuristic sound. Whatever you want to call it,underground,experimental,alternative,or space hop this music shines over all mainstream spoon-fed garbage. This Album is tight.Favorite tracks so far,Escape 2 Mars,Rhyme Travel,Light years,Somathapeople,and Dreamin'(feat.Del and Brother Ali) Don't forget to check out "Dropping Science Fiction" with his new group "The Mighty Underdogs"

5.0 out of 5 stars Gift of Gab: escape 2 mars November 5, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I love gift of gab and this is one of the best albums hes put out since the blackalicious stuff. I didn't like is recent work as much but it is still better quality hip hop than most stuff out there. This album is awesome.

3.0 out of 5 stars not really fellin it September 4, 2010
By hendu
Format:Audio CD
at first I thought this album would be great coming from the guy who just did fourth dimensional rocketships going up and at first i liked it but then i realized that although there where some pretty good songs on it there were a few terrible ones too. Spotlight, Electric Waterfalls, In Las Vegas, and the other version of Dreamin quickly became hard to listen to. So if your trying to decide between Escape 2 Mars and Fourth Dimensional Rocketships Going Up than you defiantly should get Fourth Dimensional Rocketships Going Up.

5.0 out of 5 stars buy this album! April 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The post office lost the first copy I ordered but Amazon made it all better by replacing it for free with over night shipping through ups. This album is SICK. Track 3 is now one of my favorite jams of all time! If you like your hip hop to have meaning behind the lyrics the Gift of Gab is a great place to start. Buy it!
