Brother Ali – Tight Rope (Video)

blame it on Shake March 23, 2010

Before giving an in studio performance, Brother Ali breaks down the idea behind the record off his latest release US. Filmed at Different Fur Studios. Shouts to yourstru.ly.

Brother Ali’s “Tight Rope” tells a story in three parts. Verse 1 tells of the Somalian refugees who try to find home and hope in Ali’s native Minneapolis. Verse 2 touches on the all too familiar subject of the broken home and the insurmountable obstacles of going on like normal when there’s really no such thing. Verse 3 boldly explores the psyche of a young man outcast by homosexuality, desperately trying to hold up what’s left of an open identity.

    brother ali is in my top 5, but US was smelly puss juice.. and I bought it… it was kind of like when atmos dropped lemons and was a huge let down, especially coming off of prolly atmos best work to date “how much fun”. same can be said for ali and the “undistributed truth”. I still support and got nothing for love, but was just let down.

  • One of my favorite tracks off US. Great song.
