Brother Ali’s rap resolve

Rhymesayers star Brother Ali didn’t stop in Montreal on the tour behind his latest LP Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color, but that didn’t prevent Cult MTL from calling him up to discuss his decade in hip hop, a great year gone by for rap records and feeling unstoppable in the new year.

Today’s Sounds: Brother Ali

First off, I gotta come clean and say that I’m just about the biggest Brother Ali fan around. He is my favourite contemporary rapper and has been since the first time I dropped the needle on his debut, Shadows on the Sun. If the Brotha’ decided to record himself singing in the shower, I would pre-order the autographed limited edition soap-shaped vinyl.
