Sacramento, CA, hip hop superstars Blackalicious announced today on their Facebook page that they’d be bringing their brief fall tour to Gabe’s in Iowa City on Sep. 28, linking a Bandsintown page for the event. Ticket prices and opening acts have yet to be announced.

Blackalicious, formed in 1994 by master lyricist Gift of Gab and his beatman, Chief Xcel, released their fourth studio album, Imani Vol. 1, last September. It had been 10 years since their previous project together, 2005’s The Craft. Gift of Gab told the website in January, 2015 that Imani Vol. I is intended as the first in a three volume series of albums.
