Chali 2Na is no stranger to collaboration. A founding member of Los Angeles hip-hop group Jurassic 5 and former contributor to eight-piece Latin/hip-hop/salsa fusion collective Ozomatli, he knows when to step aside and wait for his moment to shine.--- On his new solo album Fish Outta Water, he teams up with an impressive cast of artists including Anthony Hamilton, Beenie Man, Talib Kweli, Damien Marley and Stephen Marley. The talented emcee could easily command a room on his own, with a deep, smooth voice that’s instantly recognizable to anyone who grew up on his music. Tonight, though, he’ll be accompanied by a full band. Show time is 8 p.m. at The State Room which recently added a slew of forthcoming shows to its schedule. Check it out!
