Brother Ali - Writer’s Block

Posted 4 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Jake One
Album:
Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color

Some folks drop tracks daily and projects weekly as quantity takes priority over quality. Not Brother Ali. He’s one of those emcees that’s deliberate in what he releases and when. As Ali says right from the beginning on his new release Writer’s Block, he’s not trying to be one of those dudes that makes hundreds of new songs and ain’t none of them good. With Jake One on production, he talks doubt, family life, his process and more, and because it’s been a minute since the last Brother Ali track (2010’s Breaking Dawn Boys, you find yourself taking in every word and appreciating each verse. This dope cut is off the upcoming Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color, a joint project with Jake One.
