Comment: Wow, this beat is crazy. It’s like Brother Ali meets disco meets futuristic rollerskating rink. Honestly, when you listen to this track, you should shut off all your lights except for your strobelite, then just visualize Brother Ali rhyming (center rink while kind of just swaying back and forth) on rollerskates as aliens, doing all that bounce roll trick stuff, whip past him. If only he’d let me make his videos for him. He’d be bigger than George Washington. For real though, this track is one of my favorite Brother Ali joints ever. I love the dude, but sometimes I need to listen to him in small doses. By the end of an entire Brother Ali album, I’m generally exhausted. And I mean that as a compliment. His lyrics are deep and his subject matter heavy. Good things. But by the end I feel as though I’ve filled my “this world is tough, times are hectic, let’s make that change” quota for the entire week. “Talkin’ My Shit” is a nice breath of fresh air as it offers us up more of a party-vibe, albeit in much appreciated non-traditional format. It ain’t like Brother Ali’s talking about poppin’ bubbly and scamming on moisties. It’s both refreshing for Brother Ali and for the far too stale vibe of popular hip hop party music. Brother Ali sets the mood from his opening lines, “Do you mind, I’m trying to build a kingdom here, walk to the store with your boy let’s get a ginger beer, listen here I’ve got some shit to sprinkle in your ear, ripping’s here, the kick and snare, whistle like Rakim was here.” That’s what’s up. Plus, Brother Ali gets bonus love for concluding his ultra-serious “Uncle Sam Goddamn” trio with this joint.
