    Hailing from Sacramento, Calif., hip-hop duo Blackalicious hit their peak in the early 2000s. Popular tunes include the piano-stomp ballad “Deception” and the lyrically strenuous “Alphabet Aerobics,” in which MC Gift of Gab delivers 26 fast-paced alliterative and alphabetized rhyming couplets. In 2015, the group emerged after a 10-year absence with Imani Vol. 1, a well-received, funked-out return to form. Known for extensive collaborations, the pair frequently teams up with rap stars such as Lateef, Lyrics Born, Cut Chemist and Fantastic Negrito. Blackalicious perform on Tuesday, February 19, at ArtsRiot in Burlington. Locals Jarv, Loupo and Crusty Cuts add support. at ArtsRiot in Burlington (map). $18/20.
