Biography

For the first time in his life, Brother Ali has been enjoying some day-to-day stability. Gone is the turbulent marriage to his first wife, homelessness, and the associated drama—all of which Ali openly documented on his last LP, The Undisputed Truth.

His new album, Us, is a progression that will establish Brother Ali as one of Hip Hop’s most enduring figures. While ... Read more in Amazon's Brother Ali Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Going Strong March 10, 2009
Format:Audio CD
B. Ali is right back at it. True to his sound (ANT as well), true to fans, and true to himself. This is one solid little package. The EP itself is well worth the price, let alone the bonus DVD! The pre-order edition also came with a Brother Ali poster/lyric sheet, sticker, and an Atmosphere and POS sticker from the new albums. Thank you by the way Rhymesayers for the incredible value and product.

I'll do a brief overview of both the CD and DVD.

The EP:
More great beats from ANT (some reminiscent of Shadows on the Sun/Champoin) and of course, more inspired words of truth delivered with Ali's signature flow and passion. Once again, Ali invites you into his life and tells you what's been up lately. The first song particuarly, recaps some of the events that have occurred in his life over the last tour and what not. I won't give any stories away, but I will say that as always, Ali is upclose and personal. Also, as always, his words are well thought out and well placed, and his flow continues to be a favorite.

Basically, it's more great ANT and Ali doin' their thing. It's all there- the beats, the rhymes, the delivery, etc. If you have been a fan of Ali especially, you should in NO way be disappointed. With the new album out this fall, you couldn't wet your appetite any better.

The DVD:
This is a very nice addition to the Ali collection. The bulk of it is Ali's sold-out homecoming show at First Ave in Minn after The Undisputed Truth tour. In between the songs there are cuts of Ali talking one on one with the camera about the tour, coming home, his hometown (includes a take of him in his old hood), etc. The show itself is a great one. Good sound quality as well. I don't want to spoil anything, but the end of the show is cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Truth? It's Right Here! (5 stars) April 3, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I couldn't imagine a better voice to support Minnesota's thriving hip-hop scene other than Brother Ali. The quality he brings to the table each and every time out is simply astonishing. While Ali continues to grow as a lyricist and songwriter, Ant continues to make tremendous strides as a producer, bringing even more heat and impressiveness to this extended EP (which is 34 minutes in length). This duo holds the mass appeal that the mainstream aspect of the game truly needs. This is real hip-hop in it's truest sense.

Fresh off of his critically acclaimed sophomore album, "The Undisputed Truth", Ali picks up where he left off. Ali continues to grow as a person, and his music is a testament of his real life tales and struggles - the "truth" as Ali will continue to pound into your skull. He reaches listeners on a personal level, and this material is arguably his best to date, as I say with every Brother Ali release (even though "Shadows On The Sun" still my personal favorite). Ant's soundscapes continue to evolve with infectious funk, boom bap, and jazz flavored elements, among others. Every beat and lyric here is truly gripping in my humble opinion. My favorite cuts are "Real As Can Be", "Philistine David", "Palm The Joker", "Talkin' My Sh**" (my favorite), & the excellent closer "Begin Here". The DVD portion of this package is also very nice, which features a great concert at the legendary First Avenue club in Minneapolis. There is also a commentary track which is very interesting. Highly recommended to any hip-hop listener.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Truth Is Here... Great album! October 25, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I was introduced to Brother Ali while in jail. He was all that I listened to when I got a chance to and his positive, soldier like, concience approach to his artistry captured me immediately. Can wait to hear his latest!
