Minneapolis MC Brother Ali brings his nimble, socially conscious rhymes to Bowery Ballroom. Here you'll hear from the Rhymesayers signee's latest, Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color, a dark exploration of modern-day politics over hit-or-miss beats that tend to bow to the words at hand. The inventive local underground rhymer Homeboy Sandman leads off.
