After scolding Chali 2NA to get a "real job" on Quality Control, her son's full-length bow as a member of Jurassic 5, Mama 2NA opens this new mix CD by calling him from the fish market, launching this seventeen-cut lead-in to Chali's solo debut next year. A compilation of previously released tracks and new collabos, Fish Market finds him bringing barrier-busting baritone raps to electro chants ("Lunch Time" with J-5ers Akil and Zaakir along with Click the Supah Latin) and South London boom bap ("Join the Dots" with Roots Manuva). True to J-5's ensemble roots, Chali 2NA's Fish Market boasts no standout stars, only galaxies of style and sound.
