Just in time for the political season, agit-rapper Brother Ali has a new album, Mourning In America And Dreaming In Color, due for a September 18 release via Rhymesayers. Of course, the title is a critique on President Reagan’s famous “Morning In America” ad, and now Brother Ali has released the sort-of title track in video form.
With violent, militaristic images flooding the scenes, Ali spits out his rhymes at a rapid-fire clip, railing against the injustice of current society. His voice wavers between a rough bark and a tenuous rasp, reflecting the emotionality of the lyrics and message. Watch the video below.
