No better way to kick this blog off.
Brother Ali is one of my favorite MCs — favorite musicians, period. This track is from his record All the Beauty in This Whole Life, released earlier this year. Always soulful, strong with a message, and ridiculously skilled on the mic (he’s got rhymes for days. Google his name + freestyle and watch the clips. Crazy), he goes spiritual on this latest record.
This song has been on regular repeat for me all year.
