Brother Ali Announces New Album Us, On Rhymesayers Entertainment
Minneapolis rapper embarks on North American Tour in support of album

Brother Ali‘s last album, the critically acclaimed The Undisputed Truth, was a landmark in hip-hop, an album that carried weight equally with critics and fans alike, an album of bold statements and bolder beats, politically and socially aware without being preachy. His new album, Us (out September 22nd on Rhymesayers Entertainment), is a progression that will make Brother Ali one of the most enduring figures in hip-hop; while still aware, Ali has turned his gaze inward, and started examining the human condition from the outside in. A profound personal glimpse into a vulnerability seldom seen or heard in music, Us touches on the strengths and flaws of the human condition, exploring drug abuse, divorce, homophobia and many more topics that most people are scared to touch in their own lives, much less on an album for the world to see.

As with previous endeavors, the beats here are courtesy of Ant, whose production work seems to be getting more soulful and lush by the minute. The guest appearances only accentuate Brother Ali’s strengths, with Chuck D, Freeway, Joell Ortiz and Stokley Williams of Mint Condition making strong appearances.

In support of the new album, Ali is embarking on a North American tour of epic proportions, enlisting the help of labelmates and collaborators Evidence (of Dilated Peoples, recently signed to Rhymesayers), BK One and Toki Wright.

Fans can get presale tickets here as of today.

    Yeah true but the streets was still fucking with styles heavy and still is…

    But its funny how niggas don’t call out fifty for sucker shit like that, but when that rumor about jay shutting down chris brown niggas was quick to jump on jay.

    But we all know had 50 been good friends with rihanna, he would have done some shit like that…and niggas would have kept silent.

    50 had that suge knight appeal for a few years, buts its crumbling now.
