Song of the Day: Blackalicious - Blazing Arrow

Blackalicious is a group that can easily fit in with classic De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest and The Pharcyde - groups with a mostly positive message that sample a diverse catalog, rather than just old P-Funk records.

I didn't buy many hip hop records in the 2000s, so take with a grain of salt that I found Blazing Arrow to be one of the best I heard of that decade.  Gift of Gab is a pretty amazing rapper, and you can hear in this song, the title track of the album (despite its incorrect labeling on Grooveshark as being on The Craft), how quick he is.  If you like classic underground rap, I'd highly recommend Blazing Arrow.
