In upholding hip-hop’s oft-underplayed element of speaking truth to power, even Brother Ali himself isn’t sure that the current musical climate is ready for his new studio album, Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color ― an honest, scathing but ultimately buoyant 14-track statement on the current Western world status quo.

“I think they have to be ready. I just make music that reflects how I feel about things,” he says.

Went to the Toronto show. Man this dude is a consummate performer. Peep the full interview with the uber-talented Brother Ali at Exclaim.
