Fish Market - Part 2


Artist: Chali 2Na
Decon Records
RRP: £13.99
Available 21 February 2011

Chali 2Na (Charlie Tuna) is back with the second instalment of his Fish Market series, Fish Market - Part 2. This time the rapper is joined by DJ Dez Andres (Slum Village) as the two combine their styles to produce an album that feels like a well crafted mixtape.

For this second volume, Chali stretches his vocals over a varied framework of instruments. On 'Across the Map' J-Live assists as tidal waves of of cadence crash over punchy horns, eastern strings and timeless boom-bap. Never stagnant though, Chali doesn’t hesitate to flip the script and systematically dismantle Rusko’s dubstep on ‘Gadget Go Go’ with a tangled double-time flow. It’s moments like this that remind us that even when he stylistically casts a wide net, Chali 2na is a rapper’s rapper at the core.

Overall this is an upbeat album that offers something for all fans of Hip-Hop and rap. This is well worth checking out.
