"I don't feel like I've hit a wall or a limitation that I couldn't necessarily conquer in some form or fashion… this album has been fun," the artist, emcee and poet, Chali 2na says in the trailer for his latest project, Against the Current, a 5 EP installment to be released throughout this year. The Against the Current clip below is a sneak peak into the project, and also serves as the title-track and single of the first EP.
As one of the founding members of Jurassic 5 and the salsa-funk outfit Ozomatli, Chali 2na is delving heavily into what it's like to be a solo artist, experiencing both the pressure and the freedom of producing your own material. Known for his iconic baritone voice, fans are starting to gather for his nationwide tour starting tomorrow, February 9th in Oakland and finishing in Austin, TX, just in time for this year's SXSW.
