Summary: One Of His Best Tracks
Comment: I just started constantly rockin' to his Shadows on the Sun CD, almost 2 years after the release and this is just one of my favorites. He's got such a great aura to him and I've been 'got' since.

Comment: For all those who say Brother Ali stinks should just go listen to their Ludacris and Nelly crap. Fast food junk rap.

Summary: Brother Ali Is The Furture Of Hip Hop
Comment: Brother Ali spits so much emotion in this song, and you can definitely feel it. This song is kind of like his version of Nas "Project Windows". Ant flips an ill beat on this one, aggressive yet soulful. Classic plain and simple.

Summary: Simply A Good Song.
Comment: Thought I would review this now. The beat is aight, actually ain't all that bad, Ant always is pretty decent with his beats. Ali comes correct with his lyrics.

Summary: Average Overall
Comment: This song was average at best, the lyrics flow too fast and are constantly trying to keep up with the beat.

Comment: Ali is a great songwriter and emcee, period. He possesses a talent equal to any great blues singer in that he can channel his personal anguish through the microphone and reach the listener in a meaningful way. Make no mistakes, he spits fire. Ant's production is heavy too. Pure gulley with the horns and a depressing/haunting vocal sample crying away in the background.

Summary: Passion And Power
Comment: In this song Brother Ali displays his creative storytelling prowess capturing your imagination and taking you on a journey through his everyday life. His poetic style reigns supreme over the beat. I recommend anyone to see him live because it is mind blowing.

Summary: Top Five Emcee Out!!!!!!
Comment: INCREDIBLE… that is all you can say. This huge (possible three hundred pound) albino guy from Minn. is as good or better than Sage, Sole, Eyedea, and Slug. I saw him in concert twice and if you get a chance to see his show this summer, DO NOT MISS IT!

Comment: This beat starts off weak, and when it gets into it is only average compared to mainstream sh*t. Lyrics are garbage sometimes, but the rest of the time they are aight. Not much more than that.

Summary: Nice Lyrics, Beat Could Be Better
Comment: I'm feeling this song, but I do agree that this could have been over a better beat. Brother Ali definitely has the talent though... represent!

Comment: This track does paint quite a picture and when I saw him do this acapella at two shows here in Florida (Gainesville and Miami) it was just as dope. Good sh*t and I'm definitely coppin' his album when it drops.

Summary: This Is Hip Hop...
Comment: I give his lyrics good ratings, simply because it's about his life and his environment- that's what hip-hop started out as. His beat though, is unimpressive- he needs to work on it!

Summary: Beat Is Nice
Comment: Brother Ali's a little too energetic for me. Beat is nice, but gets old quick. Vocals in the background should've been left out.

Comment: Uhh…this sounds like it was in a Lugz commercial or something. The other track is better.

Summary: First I've Heard
Comment: For my first time listening to Brother Ali, I was pretty impressed. The concept was cool, the beat was nice, and overall it made for a good song. Although the lyrics were a bit lacking, I'll be sure to keep checking for Ali's work.

Summary: Great Rhymes
Comment: The Beat is way above average and the lyrics are unbelieveable. I love shit that paints a picture. Rhymesayers have been representing underground with consistently head nodding music.

Summary: Ali Is Nuts!
Comment: I seen the same show the dude seen in Bloomington though in Louisville. He did this in spoken word and you were drawn in to what he was saying. He painted a hell of a picture. Being as though I heard this in spoken word and not over a beat, when I heard the beat come in, I about fell out of my seat. This is what an emcee is supposed to sound like.

Summary: I Actually Registered To Do This
Comment: I thought this is one of the most listenable tracks from the underground I have heard in a long minute. I actually rewinded the joint. Keep it up Brother Ali.

Summary: Loved Him At The Show, Gonna Love His New CD!
Comment: I remember when I went to the Atmosphere show back in Bloomington earlier this year and had no idea who this guy was or what he was about. About 10 min. into the show, I knew. During that night, Ali performed this track, except it was in spoken word format. He put the lyrics into the song well! I can't wait for the CD to drop!

Comment: Nice single from this cat. Verbal niceness and smooth/hype produced beat. In my opinion, it deserves the props.

Summary: Rhymesayers Once Again!
Comment: Along with Slug and Eyedea's label is Brother Ali. He raps with an energetic flow to an addicting and powerful beat. This is the type of hip hop that should be on the radio. None of that Ja Rule bullsh*t.
