Pitchfork premieres “Gift of Gab,” a documentary short that follows iconic Blackalicious MC Timothy “Gift of Gab” Parker and his journey to overcome a life-threatening kidney condition caused by type 1 diabetes. The film, directed by Strike Anywhere’s Michael Jacobs, is a portrait of creative resurgence spurned by difficult circumstances, as Gab uses his diagnosis as inspiration to write Imani Vol 1, Blackalicious’ first album in over a decade.
