Throwback Music: The Fabulous Chi Ali

Chi-Ali (Chi Griffith) was part of hip hop's legendary "Native Tongues Family" (Consisted of De La Soul, Black Sheep, A Tribe Called Quest, Queen Latifah etc). One of his 1st appearances in the rap game was on the track called "Pass The 40" off of Black Sheeps debut album "A Wolf In Sheeps Clothing" and then he released his own solo album at the age of 14 titled "The Fabulous Chi-Ali" produced by The Beatnuts and Black Sheep's Mista Lawnge. The album had the hits "Roadrunner", "Funky Lemonade" and "Age Ain't Nuthin' But A #". I remember blaring this album through my yellow Panasonic Headphones/Walkman hard in 1992.

And if you become a fan (go buy the album)

Chi Ali was like basketball's Gary Coleman of rap music...young, eloquent, a prodigy equipped with all of the skills needed to make his mark, but never gets to. Chi Ali got in a dispute with his girlfriend's brother Sean Raymond over $300 that Ali was owed, when he didn't get his cash he decided to go jackin' for beats and stole over 60 of Sean's rare cd's. On the14th of January 2000 the two argued about it on the phone and later that night Chi-Ali and a friend jumped Sean Raymond on Quincy Avenue in their Throgs Neck neighbourhood in the Bronx and Chi shot him 5 times.

He was on the run from the cops for over a year and appeared on Americas Most Wanted twice. He was 10 minutes away from being caught in Atlanta before he returned to his home town, only a week after A.M.W. aired his story for second time on the 24th of Febuary 2001 the cops were tipped off to where he was hiding in the Throgs Neck Houses on 1575 Odell St. in the Bronx and the next day he got raided and was found armed before being arrested for murder and becoming the 657th person shown on A.M.W. captured. He should be about 32 years old now...and 2012 is the year of his expected release from jail after a 14 year sentence.

Stay Strong Chi...
