Pre-Order Brother Ali “Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color” | http://bit.ly/NbZfy1
As I reported early May when Brother Ali dropped a video for the single “Not a Day Goes By” news has finally reached the blogosphere that Brother Ali will be releasing his new album Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color on 21st August 2012 via Rhymesayers Entertainment. Brother Ali has been supportive, and has been supported by Hip-Hop Kings for a number of years, and I’m as excited as ever to hear some new material to a man who’s widely regarded as an underground Hip-Hop legend. As always from Rhymesayers, look out for some innovative and exciting promotion leading up to the album release, however in the meantime you can view the official artwork and pre-order link for Brother Ali - Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color above.
