In addition to the noodly guitar synonymous with jam music and the requisite funk and jazz influences expected from a respectable New Orleans group, Galactic has demonstrated a particular fondness for hip-hop, collaborating with MCs like Lyrics Born, Juvenile and Blackalicious’ Gift of Gab. Galactic’s most recent album, From the Corner to the Block, was their most rap-driven yet, and for the group’s 8 p.m. show tonight at Shank Hall, they’ll share the stage with Chali 2na, the recognizable baritone rapper from now-defunct old-school rap advocates Jurassic 5.
