Awhile back I posted a video of a promo for Brother Ali’s video for “Good Lord”. Well as you can see above the video is finally here, and it’s awesome. The video was shot at the Malcom X & Betty Shabazz Center, and was produced by Rik Cordero. This is a great video for an even better song. If you haven’t gotten The Truth is Here EP I have little to no faith in you.

Also, KarmaLoop had a chance to catch up with Brother Ali in Boston at one of his shows. Brother Ali talks about the people that listen to his music and how they probably grew up different than he did. He also talks about the song “Forest Whitiker” and the fact that he is really glad to be in the skin that he’s in. Brother Ali bring a great introspect into music because he’s lived on both sides of the street (ghetto and suburb) and he’s one of the most humble people you’ll ever meet. It’s great to hear an emcee like Brother Ali talking about how happy he is to be where he’s at.

One of them being J Dilla. He says in the interview that he was the first emcee (on a major) to buy a beat from Dilla. He also says that he passed on some of the biggest hits that Dilla ever produced. This guy can really do his thing, and I can see why Dilla liked working with him. Continue reading
