Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Brother Ali (rap vocals); Mankwe Ndosi (vocals); Eric Anderson (keyboards); Joe Mabbott (percussion).
  • Audio Mixer: Joe Mabbott.
  • Photographer: Jonathan Mannion.
  • Hands down the hottest albino rapper out there, Brother Ali is part of the Minnesota-based Rhymesayers crew that includes Atmosphere and Eyedea & Abilities. On his second full-length release, THE UNDISPUTED TRUTH, Ali hits with a slew of socially conscious lyrics, ranging from outwardly aggressive and politically charged to angst-ridden and introspectively emotional. His flow is hungry yet always in command over 15 butter, street-level beats courtesy of ANT. Ali lays out the complex details of his racial identity on "Daylight," decries the military's role in the lives of low-income Americans on "Letter From the Government," and speaks from the heart to his young son on "Faheem."
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.86) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Producer Ant perfectly underscores Ali's gruff cadence...with a melodic lope that scrunches soul vocals underneath loops of bluesy guitar."

Alternative Press (p.194) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Ali has evidently paid attention to old school tourmates like Rakim; even when he's just paraphrasing Public Enemy, his rhymes carry genuine heft."

The Wire (p.45) - "Minneapolis MC Brother Ali is a fierce battle rapper and a deep soul....Rhymesayers' in-house beatmaker Anthony Davis handles all THE UNDISPUTED TRUTH's fantastic production, smartly pairing reggae to personal freedom anthems..."

CMJ (p.38) - "[He] resurrects hip-hop that rocks just as it rivets, that testifies just as it philosophizes."
