It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Brother Ali, one of the most soulful hip-hop acts doing it today. But don’t think for a second that the span of time between his previous album, 2009’s incredible Us, and his planned new album, this year’s Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color, has anything to do with, well, “Writer’s Block.”
As he outlines in the new, Jake One-producer burner, Ali isn’t “trying to be one of them fools that makes hundreds of new songs but none of them are good.” Dude takes his time and, you know, we’re all better for it as his output has been consistently good-to-great. While you won’t hear “Writer’s Block” on Mourning In America, it’s clearly a sign of very, very good things to come. You can download the track here and watch the video below.
