Stream: Brand New Brother Ali “Cassette Tape”
In addition to being incredibly talented and taking an increasing role as the social conscious of the Minneapolis music scene, Brother Ali seems to have that shark-like instinct of constantly needing to move to stay alive. That ability to think outside the box is on display with his latest release, a digital online “cassette tape.” The release is streaming online and can be bought in conjunction with new T-shirts both online and on his current tour with Immortal Technique. The “tape,” which is two sides of seamless music produced by Jake One, is by no means a hollow gimmick. It is Ali spitting his usually righteous blend of social commentary and just straight up spellbinding rhymes. It is a really cool release that is both different in its approach and top notch in terms of quality. Either grab it if the War and Peace tour is rolling through your town or head to the fifth element website.
