Editorial Reviews

Product Description

In 2000, Brother Ali joined Rhymesayers with a self-produced demo, "Rites of Passage". Three years later he released "Shadows On The Sun", followed by the critically acclaimed "Champion EP", which smacked hip-hop kids in the face worldwide. He spent the last seven years on tour. After struggling through a series of personal roadblocks, Brother Ali, along with Atmosphere producer and Shadows & Champion collaborator Ant, present his long-awaited sophomore full-length album. Personal, political, and more powerful than ever.

One of the first great voices to emerge from the underground this century. -- Pitchfork Media

5.0 out of 5 stars Brother Ali's Best Effort Yet April 10, 2007
By isaac
Format:Audio CD
Chances are you have never heard of Brother Ali. As an albino Muslim, he may not pass under the radar walking down the street, but he has managed to stay relatively unknown in the rap world. Well not for long...

3 years in the making, The Undisputed Truth is the excellent sophomore effort by Brother Ali. Featuring nearly 60 minutes of Ali and just Ali, there are no skits or featuring artists, so by the end of this CD, it seems as if you know Ali on a much more personal album than would seem possible after only one listen. This album features Ant form the duo Atmosphere producing most of the tracks, which feature his signature soul inflected beats. Make no mistake, this cd is all about Ali, but one can see the deveolpment of Ant as a producer, as he delves deeper into reggae inflected beats and creates a more unique style. This is not just a side project for Ant, and he pulls out some of his best production work to date. Ali rips almost every track, and his flow fits perfectly with Ants production.

Right from the beginning, it is visible how muhc music means to Brother Ali and how much effort he puts into every track. Each track shows raw emotion that is somehting that is surprisingly fresh to listen to, and is nothing like the stuff pumping through your radio. The first track Watcha Got is an absolute banger and will get you swaying your head immediatly. My only problem with this album is that there were not more bangers like this one, as it seems this is what Ali raps most comfortably over. Next comes Lookin at me sideways, which shows Alis stunning storytelling abilities.

Tracks pass quickly, and Ali bears his soul to the listener, and functions on a much mroe personal level than any rapper you may have heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Undisputed Excellence April 28, 2008
Format:Audio CD
If you've never heard of Brother Ali, then you're missing out. The Minneapolis based MC's second LP, The Undisputed Truth is a brilliant piece of heartfelt hip hop. To understand the music, it helps to have a cursory understanding of the man. Ali (born Jason Newman) grew up in Madison, WI, but left home at the age of 15 and moved to Minneapolis, which is when he began his involvement in hip hop. Despite reports that have been written to the contrary, Brother Ali is not a "black albino muslim." He is albino, and is muslim, but is of the caucasian race. That doesn't really matter in the long run, because white or black, he's damn good at what he does.

If you've ever heard any music from Rhymesayers Entertainment, the Minneapolis based record company that Ali is signed to, then you probably have at least heard music produced by Ant. Ant is, in my opinion, a genius. Between his work with Slug on Atmosphere's albums, and the production work that he does with most of the label's other projects, he's crafted some of the greatest hip hop instrumentals of the past decade. He's right up there with Pete Rock in my opinion.

His work on The Undisputed Truth is more brilliance. Just listen to the hip hop meets reggaeton beat of "Truth Is." Brother Ali has stated in interviews that Ant really takes his job seriously, and that job is to create music specifically for the MC he's partnering with at that time. There is not a beat on the album that sounds out of place, fully complimenting everything that Brother Ali does with his lyrics and his voice, creating a truly complete song.

Ali's voice is very versatile. He can be forceful, forthright, and extremely aggressive.

I actually got this album 5 days before it came out and i was chomping at the bit to tell EVERYONE I KNEW how great this album is. ( i set up what to search for on amazon actually)

I love brother ali for what he is and does. He speaks nothing but the unabashed truth.. all he does on this Lp is show how superior he is to anyone else in the game rite now. I honestly think the only person who can mess with him rite now is Nas. The best part of the whole ordeal is that this man is completely respected and he is staying true to his underground roots( RHYMESAYERS....MINNEAP BABY!!!!)in minneapolis. We have shown nothing but support and love to ali and all he has given us back is INCREDIBLE albums and heartfelt anthems.

ali is the best rapper alive, BUY THIS LP

4.0 out of 5 stars The Undisputed Truth - Bro Ali May 23, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was extremely impressed by the video and lyrics to Uncle Sam..., consequently I bought each CD. I returned all but The Undisputed Truth. Please keep in mind as you read this that I am a 51 year old woman and it is quite unusual for me to buy anything even resembling rap nowadays. I find Brother Ali refreshing and believe him to be a man with a strong social conciousness. I was not always impressed with the beats or rhythms in this CD...some sounded choppy to me... but I truly appreciated his lyrics.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 The Truth is Here! August 23, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Brother Ali comes through with an excellent album for all the true hip-hop heads out there. His second album is right on the same level as his first, which is top-notch. Ali's voice and flow are so powerful & passionate, you can't help but feel every word he's saying. Backed by some excellent production from Ant of Atmosphere, who is one of todays best beat makers. The second half of the album is definitely stronger in my opinion, with the last song being my favorite. The best tracks on the album are; "Watcha Got", "Daylight", "Here", "Take Me Home", "Walking Away", "Faheem", and "Ear To Ear". It's hard to say if this indeed is a classic album, but it is right on the brink of greatness.

I got mine at the borders store, because 1) the mixtape and the sticker were only for pre-orders and 2)i didn't want to wait until it got mailed to me and so had to buy it right away. But mine says it is a special edition with the bonus DVD.
