RSE and Ali are offering a special pre-order deal of $9.99 and the opportunity to win a free ipod touch loaded up by Ali himself with all of his work including the out of print Rights of Passage. The album artwork is below:

In addition, they announced the Fresh Air tour (click here for dates and the official announcement) featuring Ali, Evidence, Toki Wright, and BK-One, which my man Tim recently posted about. Tickets are on sale now as a special Fan Pre-Sale and will go on sale for the general public next week.
