BROTHER ALI: An MC For the People.

Of everybody I've ever interviewed in my lifetime, Brother Ali is by far one of the greatest. He's easy going, laid back, extremely willing to talk, and best of all, thoughtful with his responses. Fuck a generic, canned, cookie cutter answer, Ali is about being open with the audience and expressing himself. And that's what he did in this interview. If you notice, we just let him talk. Not too much editing, cutting, or flashiness. Why? Because it doesn't need it.

In this one, Brother Ali talks about battling as a youngin’, his origins of being an emcee and how his next album, The Street Preacher, will reflect the people’s struggle, as opposed to his auto-biographical ways on his previous efforts. Shout out to Ali, thanks for the great interview.
