With the 10th annual Rhymesayers Soundset Festival kicking off tomorrow (May 28th), the Sway in the Morning crew have hit the road, broadcasting live from Minneapolis.

Following performances from Sa-Roc and Mod Sun, Sway — who is hosting tomorrow’s big show — invited Brother Ali to the floor to participate in the 5 Fingers of Death freestyle challenge.

After taking on the challenge effortlessly, the prophetic emcee and activist sat down to discuss his new album, The Beauty In This Whole Life and the praise he’s received in the wake of its release, what has been inspiring him, race, culture and the power of music, before performing “Dear Black Son” live.

Watch the interview and performance below and catch Brother Ali as he graces the stage at Soundset tomorrow.
