  • Artist: Chali 2na
  • Track: Step Yo Game Up
  • Producer: Scott Storch
  • Album: Fish Market Series (Vol. 2)

There’s no shortage of people who need to step their game up right now (I’m looking at you guys fixing the Lousiana oil spill), and former Jurassic 5/Ozomatli frontman and recent Decon Records signee Chali 2na, who made his Booth debut a year ago with the Kweli-assisted Lock S**t Down, has no problem telling them so on his new leak Step Yo Game Up. Production wise Scott Storch, who’s slowly beginning to put together a comeback of sorts, delivers an engaging if not particularly remarkable beat, but with a voice like Chali’s it almost doesn’t matter. While his baritone delivery, as always, takes center stage, it’s Chali’s cadence and flow that truly prove yet again what an elite emcee Chali is, although I’m sure there will be no shortage of naysayers waiting to, well, naysay. We’ll separate the supporters from the detractors soon. For more hip-hop rich in Omega 3s, be sure to cop Chali’s Fish Market Series (Vol. 2) mixtape, set to hit dry land on June 8.
