Brother Ali - Shadows On The Sun
Poppin' in this disc would be definite gratification. Brother Ali (of Rhyme Sayers Entertainment) starts off strong with one style and rips into another with impassioned originality. Shadows of the Sun is like an equalizer.
The album starts off intense and then drops to a sullen medium. It has some downfalls, but comes back intense until the end. Everyone can relate to this album personally in some way. In "Blah Blah Blah", Ali and Slug (of Atmosphere) both make lyrical adjustments to each other, to make it the best song on the album. Blaring out various lyrics makes it sound somewhat freestyle. This track has an old school beat and outrageous execution to hip-hop styles. Choruses are somewhat a little too repetitive and he could have cut out the some of the backgroung singing and focused for some other style in that. But the beats and lyrics are hellacious. Overall, well put together, and unquestionably music to bob your head to.

Shadows on the sun is the seed which has sparked the Truth, which is starting to be a hit in the blak culture

Nice Review Lynzey. Based on your words I'm going to check out Shadows On The Sun. I'm quite familiar with Atmosphere and such so I'm sure it will fit along quite nicely.
