“Terrorism is the war of the poor, hold up a mirror so the script get flipped/ Cause when it’s in reverse it ain’t wrong no more, Warfare’s the terrorism of the rich”

Newsflash, this country is far from perfect and our leaders sure ain’t saints. Yet, despite Hip-Hop having hundreds of torch carriers with an outlet to speak on our ill surroundings, Brother Ali is one of the few that has the gonads to actually say something.For the latest leak from his upcoming album Mourning In America And Dreaming In Color, the Rhymesayers MC paints a dreary picture of our current state of affairs in the good ol’ US of A, aiming to make listeners second guess their surroundings and stop giving in to a system that’s failing us.

While he may want us to reach for more, there isn’t much most fans can ask for from Ali beyond “Mourning,” as this type of brutal honesty is not only exactly what the Minneapolis veteran is known for, but just what the genre needs every once in a while.
