In his confident preacher style, Brother Ali delivers a blend of the personal and the political without ever getting preachy. His voice, treated well by the passing of time, has aged like a good wine. It’s buttery with a smooth finish and pairs well with Evidence’s warm, funk-soul hip hop beats.

Favourite Tracks: ‘Abu Enzo’, ‘Father Figures’ & ‘Apple Tree’
