Frequently Asked Questions about booking Blackalicious.

Blackalicious's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of an offer.
CTI can give you exact pricing once we submit your event details to Blackalicious. How much Blackalicious does cost to do an event depends on many variables and the fees we show is based on a range derived from our past experience with booking. Popularity, career stage, and current demand can cause an increase or decrease in pricing. The final fee may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for Blackalicious to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI can not give out direct contact information for the agent or manager of Blackalicious. If you want to send them a message, a gift, or request a free appearance or donation of time, then we will not pass along such material or communications to any of our contacts.
There is low probability for Blackalicious to work a gig for anything substantially less than the published price range. We will negotiate with Blackalicious on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Blackalicious, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider Blackalicious's travel costs, as they may require an entourage of staff and equipment. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Blackalicious, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
