FRESH VID: BROTHER ALI

by

Midwest native Brother Ali has been pulling his weight in the rap world for the past decade or so, releasing a series of critically well-received records on independent Minnesota label Rhymesayers Entertainment. Produced primarily by longtime friend and collaborator Ant (of Atmosphere), Brother Ali’s succinct, socially conscious rhymes flow smoothly over minimal, soul-sampled beats. Sure, his message of hopeful criticism isn’t anything shocking or revolutionary, but in these resigned, apathetic days, we all still need to be reminded that “you dont want to be just well-adjusted to injustice, well-adapted to indifference.” In this video Ali elaborates on the hopeless cope psychology of poor and isolated communities with his signature wit and ardor. Ali is currently on tour to promote his new album “Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color,” and he’ll be in town at the Paradise tomorrow to drop some perspective along with Blank Tape Beloved, Homeboy Sandman with DJ Sosa and The Reminders.
