NEW MUSIC | BROTHER ALI (@BrotherAli) ‘SENSITIVE’

Over the past 17 years, Brother Ali has earned wide crit­ic­al acclaim for his deeply per­son­al, socially con­scious and inspir­ing brand of Hip-Hop. Under Rhymesay­ers Enter­tain­ment, he’s unleashed a series of lauded pro­jects, estab­lish­ing him­self as one of the most respec­ted inde­pend­ent voices in music. His latest album, All the Beau­ty in This Whole Life, rep­res­en­ted the newest and most refined chapter of his life’s jour­ney. “Each of my albums are the res­ult of the pain, growth and even­tu­al heal­ing that I exper­i­ence,” Ali said. “Artic­u­lat­ing the pain and nav­ig­at­ing the heal­ing allows the people who really feel my music to travel with me. It’s not only that we hurt togeth­er, we heal togeth­er as well.” This year, Brother Ali’s crit­ic­ally acclaimed debut album on Rhymesay­ers Enter­tain­ment, Shad­ows on the Sun, cel­eb­rates its 15th anniversary. To com­mem­or­ate this occa­sion, Brother Ali will embark on a spe­cial 13-date head­lining tour where he will per­form the monu­ment­al album in its entirety each night. The Shad­ows on the Sun 15-Year Anniversary Tour kicks off Novem­ber 1st in Wash­ing­ton D.C., with stops in New York, Min­neapol­is, Aus­tin, Los Ange­les, and more.

“Sens­it­ive’ deals with the real­ity that artists are often times faced with self doubt and a deep sense that the world isn’t hear­ing us as we’d like to be heard. This one was made at a time when I’d taken too long to release new music, had med­ic­al trouble with my voice and felt like I’d ali­en­ated fans with my polit­ic­al state­ments. Typ­ic­al ‘tor­tured artist’ vibe that not many people talk about in Hip-Hop, but we all exper­i­ence it on one level or another.”
