Brother Ali – Own Light (What Hearts Are For)

Brother Ali’s latest album All The Beauty In This Whole Life is God’s latest gift to America. Every time he releases a new project, I swear it can’t get any better – the lyricism, flow, and heavy topics. Yet again I’m in love, sold and delivered on his relevance.

If you’re in Toronto or Detroit, you can catch him on the leg-end of his tour tonight 6/7 and tomorrow 6/8 along with the Sa-Roc aka the Goddess MC, and supporting artists Last Word and Sol-Messiah.  I was blessed to catch their show at the Santa Ana Observatory on May 17th. Sa-Roc came out clearing the space by burning sage before her hard-hitting set.  Brother Ali regaled us with new and old shit while asking us to enjoy the moment with him, not with our phones. It was a much-needed escape into conscious, reflective hip-hop that unites rather than divides.
