VIDEO: Brother Ali - Writers Block

The Brother is back at it again, with a sermon on a topic I have known well at times in my life: Writer's Block. And here's a name I've been typing a lot lately: Jake-One. His signature heavy hitting sample drums provide a solid foundation on which to build the organs and pianos, but mostly just for Ali to bear his soul on.

He says "sometimes I don't write a lot/ I know folks out there call that writer's block/ I just call it my process/ it comes out when it's ready to I guess/". Well, Brother, this one sure came out. And I really dig the references to my fair city, and the downtown shots from out the window of what I assume to be Jake's crib. Check the song, and look for his new album "Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color" comin SOON.
