CO: MUSLIM ‘OUTCAST’ HITS THE MARK WITH SECOND UNDERGROUND HIP-HOP ALBUM
This April, Brother Ali released his sophomore album, “The Undisputed Truth.” The long-awaited follow-up to 2003’s “Shadows on the Sun,” the album is a 15-track tale of political shortcomings, personal contemplation and the hope for a better tomorrow.
Coming off over 140 live shows in 2006, Ali is one of the most immensely talented wordsmiths in the current underground hip-hop game, earning a massive fan-base with his optimistic lyrics and distinct appearance.
Born albino, Ali’s overweight frame and self-proclaimed outcast status makes his rise as a hip-hop revolutionary that much more impressive. He’s a devout Muslim and the inclusion of Allah and the Koran in many of his songs furthers his place as the anti-stereotypical, undisputed king of lyrical adaptability.
“The Undisputed Truth” begins in classic Brother Ali form with head-swaying beats and a flawless flow of meaningful lyrics.
