Brother Ali

Rapper Brother Ali spent much of his life living in various cities in the Upper Midwest, starting in Madison, Wisconsin, then moving to Michigan as a young child -- where he was first introduced to breakdancing and graffiti and rapping -- and finally settling in northern Minneapolis with his family when he was 15. Eventually, his demo tape Rites of Passage made it into the hands of the still young Rhymesayers crew, who signed the MC and brought him along with them to the 2000 Scribble Jam, at which Ali was a finalist. In 2003 his debut, Shadows on the Sun, produced by Atmosphere's Ant and including a song ("Forest Whitiker") that spoke of his albinoism, came out, followed by the Champion EP in 2004. The next few years were tough for Ali, a devout Muslim, as he was dealing with a divorce and struggling for custody of his son. However, all of this just provided fodder for his music, and in the spring of 2007, after a few months of delays, Brother Ali's sophomore record, The Undisputed Truth, hit shelves. His 2009 effort Us advocated a return to true hip-hop, and was followed in 2012 by the more political minded Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi

Great song
This and Uncle Sam Goddamn are my favorites.

This is an amazing song. I've always loved it
Don't read this because it actually works.
You will be kissed on the nearest possible
Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow
will be the beat say of your life. However if
you don't post this you will die in 2 days.
Now you've started reading so don't stop.
This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs
n 143 minutes. When done press f6 and
your lover's name will come on the screen
In big letters. This is so scary because it
actually works

Thank you Pandora! I think I say that on behalf of most of us.: )
You can call me ugly but can't take Nuthin from me; I am who I am doctah u ain't got love me-
stazja01
I believe his flow might best be described as ill
If you like Brother Ali, one of my all time favorites, you'll like Atmosphere too. They're actually the top similar artist suggestion by Pandora. Same DJ as Ali, his name is Ant, with a rapper named Slug, who is phenomenal. They play shows with Ali sometimes, and I would give my left nut to see them together. Give them a shot, you won't be disappointed .
He is awesome
Unfortunatel y he will never be as big as he deserves because of what he talks about in his songs White America and wall street aren't ready to hear it they dumbed hip hop down for a reason brother Ali brings it back to its true form
revodeel
One of the deepest thinkers I've been exposed to recently. Thank goodness Pandora played him XD
Great tunes.
I like him. He reminds me of the positive rap that comes from Nappy Roots.... He should be huge.
found his music thru youtube by mistake,best mistake I ever run across. love his music already
Best guy ever
Found this guy thru vinnie paz and immortal technique
