Word To The Wise

Again, it seems to be the longer I leave between posts, the better the artist I find. I might even start doing it intentionally sometime.

I stumbled across a hip hop artist named Brother Ali and, without meaning to seem exaggerated, he is perhaps one of the best I have heard. Now onto his third album, Ali is a white Albinism sufferer, with much of his lyrics dealing with this. Throw into that extremely honest thoughts on crime, sexuality and and religion and you have an artist that will not shy away from issues. Yet happily this by no means defines him, and instead he leaves it to his soulful vocals and eclectic ranges of influences to speak volumes about the man and the talent.

This is one of the best from new album Us, as well as his most recent single entitled “Fresh Air.” Enjoy.

New album Us is out now.
