With his unmistakable baritone voice and 6-and-a-half foot charm, Chali 2na has established himself as one of hip-hop's preeminent and most charismatic personalities. He's also garnered renowned praise as a visual artist across a wide spectrum of canvases.
Most known for co-founding music groups, Jurassic 5 and Ozomatli, Chali released his debut solo album "Fish Outta Water" in 2009. Since then, he has toured the world 10 times over with his 3-piece band known as the House Of Vibe.
Breathing new life into his musical upbringings, in 2013 he embarked on a career defining mission called "Against The Current”, a music + art project that combines a 5-part series of genre bending EPs with a coffee table book featuring original artwork and photography from Chali himself.
Chali’s reputation as a Hip Hop Legend continues to build momentum with his artwork, voice-over work, and an increasing variety of performance collaborations. Most recently he joined forces with UK Producer, Krafty Kuts and is currently performing as a featured guest MC on tour with Slightly Stoopid this summer.
In the fall of 2018 he will celebrate the consummation of the Against The Current project by setting out on his first-ever Art Tour! For the fist time Chali will share his talents with the World in a different type of showcasing venue - Art Galleries. More details to be announced soon!
