awesome great album classic underground rap but good lyrics
poetry lyrical real life thank you brother all read book he life story
A bit less personal, with each song having a distinct concept, this was a different sound for Ali. Ant’s production was also evolving at this stage, incorporating a lot more live instrumentation. It all works fantastically though, resulting in an emotional and mature album.
The beauty of Brother Ali's music is the fact that I can never point out a filler line or song in any of his discography. Every track is made with passion and you can feel it. Tight rope is also a S tier hip hop song and this album just really doesn't miss for the most part. Thought provoking messages, good instrumentation and consistent af. Furthermore reasoning on why he's one of the best to ever do it.
With Us Brother Ali dropped another gem, Hip Hop for thinking people. Thought-provoking lyrics laced with truth and emotion – Ali never disappoints. Following Shadows On The Sun (2003) and The Undisputed Truth (2007), Us is another Brother Ali sure shot, and of 2009’s best releases.
