BROTHER ALI /USA/
His stoic calm can make one nervous. An albino with beard. Is he white? Is he black? And then the topics nobody really wants to talk about. Sensitive, controversial, provoking… handling everything with ease. Things that make you angry and your blood boiling, he wants to solve with love. He is not afraid to talk against all the evil of this world while also discovering the beauty of it. As a peaceful Muslim he is breaking all the stereotypes and prejudice. He wears his heart on his sleeve… Minneapolis is not exactly the “mecca” of rap music. Minneapolis is not the capital of “the” scene where all the talent comes from. There are gems though. His label Rhymesayers and all the indie rappers, that’s a different story. After 11 years Brother Ali returns to Hip Hop Kemp.
