Brother Ali - Uncle Sam Goddamn

I'm a major fan of this dude from Minneapolis in the middle of America's Heartland. If you haven't heard of him you should pimp-slap your record shop assistant and cop his latest album, or one of the previous releases, from somewhere else.

Once we overcome the freak show curiosity and look beyond this muslim albino's face, right into his mind and heart, we get a man who's not only incredibly talented on the mic but may be one of the few who is so brutally honest about his own life, his failed marriage, his love for his son that it almost physically hurts (and I be damned if that track dedicated to his son Faheem doesn't squeeze a tear out of my eye.)

And if you don't believe me, take THEIR word for it.
What other great artists say about Brother Ali.

Do yourself a favour and check this cat out.
This is his video to "Uncle Sam Goddamn". It gives me the shivers.
