Brother Ali – ‘Stop The Press’ (Prod. Jake One) | New Music

Coming off the release of the soulful (when is he not?) The Bite Marked Heart EP, Brother Ali is currently prepping his fifth studio album, Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color, which looks to add another passionate, inspirational and lyrical masterpiece to the long-time Rhymesayers emcee’s catalogue. Allow the LP’s first sample, “Stop The Press”, to be the perfect case in point.

Easing into yet another rich and brassy Jake One soundbed (seriously, how slept on is Jake One?!), Ali calls for a moment to stop the press and reflect on the past few years of his life: the loss of his Father, Eyedea‘s passing and more.

If you like what you hear, prepare to really enjoy Mourning In America…, as producer Jake will be composing the entire soundtrack, and Dr. Cornel West will be making a vocal appearance, blessing the project with even more social significance.

Mourning In America and Dreaming in Color is due out August 21st, and is available to pre-order now.
