Brother Ali on his spiritual journey and new album All The Beauty In This Whole Life
6 days ago
For over a decade, Minneapolis Hip Hop artist and activist Brother Ali has promoted consciousness in rap through his lyrically agile social commentary. His new album, All the Beauty in This Whole Life, explores the notion of love as absolute truth and absolute freedom through the death of ego. He also considers a world where his Black son is not safe because of tainted societal perceptions of Blackness.
Race, religion, and identity are all pervasive themes on the album and Jesse Menendez spoke with Brother Ali about the project.
