First of all, let me start off by saying that “Freshest Kids” might be the track of the year. This shit is just plain ridiculous. I posted a video of Brother Ali & Toki recording this track a little while back, and this is the finished product. The beat on this track is incredible and all three emcees spits verses so hot it might leave your ears with third degree burns. I gotta give it up to BK-One, he’s concocted one of the best beats I’ve heard this year with this track. I’m bowing to these guys right now. And to think, they only recorded this track just for the tour… make sure you catch these guys when they come to your city, it’s going to be one hell of a show.

Damn this shit sounds like it is going to go hard as hell. Here is some footage of Brother Ali & Toki Wright in the studio during the making of a new track featuring Evidence entitled “The Freshest Kids”. Apparently they are making this track for the “Fresh Air Tour”, which I already have my tickets for (and you should to). If I may mention, the beat on this track sounds beyond sick. Also, listen for Toki going in at the end of the track, “Inglorious Bastards/enjoying this action, make audience backspin/kick like a 44 magnum, ribbed like a trojan magnum package/I’m askin’ how the kid rappin’ above average”. DAMN.

Above you can listen to Brother Ali’s new track “Fresh Air” which was released today digitally. I gotta say, this may be the best hip hop track I’ve heard all year. The beat is simply amazing (although I am a HUGE Ant fan so I’m a little biased). I heard this track live at Soundset and then again at One Day in July in downtown Minneapolis and have been waiting to get this track for a while now. This track is getting me more PUMPED for Ali’s Us due out September 22nd. Make sure you catch Ali with Evidence and Toki Wright on tour this fall.
