During a recent interview, Brother Ali shared a story of how he kicked Justin Timberlake off his stage, accidentally of course. The year is 2008 and Ali is performing at a ski resort in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. During his set, JT snuck on stage and began beatboxing. Being Albino and legally blind, Ali couldn’t make out the megastar, snatched his mic and told him to exit stage left. Crazy right? Thankfully, his DJ informed him of his “mistake” and Ali was able to track down The 20/20 Experience crooner and got him back up on stage for an impromptu freestyle session.
In another clip from the same interview with ne-hiphop, Ali speaks on his recording process and mindset revolving around his studio albums. Revealing he’d like to switch things up and release music more frequently in the form of EPs and other creative outlets. Something I’m all for as Left in the Deck is one super dope piece of work!
