HipHopDX Premiere – As a member of Jurassic 5 and Ozomatli, Chali 2na’s deep, booming voice has captivated audiences all over the world. Same goes for his impact as a solo artist.
In 2013, the Chi Town native embarked on a career-defining mission called “Against The Current,” a music and art project that combined a five-part series of genre-bending EPs with a coffee table book featuring Chali’s original artwork and photography.

Now, Chali has dropped a new single called “Change The World” featuring singer Res and additional contributions from a member of his three-piece band House Of Vibe and two others from BreakScience.
“‘Change The World’ is a collaboration between myself, Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee of BreakScience,” Chali tells HipHopDX. “It’s brought to life — meaning it’s recreated with live instruments — by Anthony Brewster of the House of Vibe. Maximum respect goes out to Res who sang the hook exactly like a sample, adding the finishing touches to this audio painting.”
