DeMarco Williams of INsite magazine spoke with Chief Xcel and Gift of Gab from Blackalicious, getting their take on what cycle they feel hip hop is currently in. Xcel said, “I kinda feel like we’re on that upswing; this is just me speaking instinctually. We’re at that period right before [De La Soul’s] Three Feet High & Rising dropped. People are just waiting to see what happens.” Gab added, “Yeah, with all the people he mentioned, there’s a renaissance happening right now. It’s just taking effect, but it’s already started.”
