    Blackalicious - "Make You Feel That Way"

    Producer: Chief Xcel

    With the help of trumpeter Anthony Coleman, Blackalicious producer Chief Xcel orchestrated one of the most memorable, beautiful tracks in the group's catalog, at once hopeful and melancholic. Mining the mournful, expressive tones of the trumpet, Coleman adds a gorgeous dimension to Gift of Gab's nostalgic, thankful rhymes; it's conscious, positive rap that never feels corny, due in large part to the key addition of a bit of brass.
