    Summary

    Brother Ali returns with the follow up to his critically acclaimed 2007 album The Undisputed Truth. Us is an album about the people closest to Ali...those that have shaped him as a person. Many of the stories are ones we know exist but might not have a personal understanding of. American slavery from the perspective of the enslaved as well as those that carry the burden and bloodline of the slave master, rape and the struggle to regain control after experiencing it, drug abuse, depression, homophobia, divorce and more. All heavy topics that very few can approach with the same human touch and understanding as Ali. Make no mistake Us is definitely a heavy album but as always Ali finds time to celebrate not only life's blessings but his respect and love for the art of MC'ing as well.

    As with all his previous releases, Ali's musical landscape has been crafted by Atmosphere beatsmith, Ant. Staying true to their soul and blues influence they've become known for, Us takes on a more lush and dense sonic quality with the duo's incorporation of live instrumentation. With guest appearances by Chuck D, Freeway, Joell Ortiz and Stokley Williams of Mint Condition, Brother Ali and Ant have once again crafted a beautifully intelligent and entertaining album for and about all of Us.

    Comment: Solid album. Not Ant's best production tho. I heard better. Especially " The undisputed Truth and Shadows of the Sun". Lyrics are always on point from Brother ali. I just feel that album gets a tiny boring towards the end.

    Comment: Listened to the album last night, definitely the best album this year. There's still 3 months left for something else to come along, but so far this album reigns supreme. "You Say" is my all-time favorite Brother Ali song already.

    Comment: Ever since I met and saw Brother Ali perform @ Paid Dues back in '07 I knew this mc was the shit. Since then my days of listening to commercial rap was over. Copped his undisputed truth (listening to tht right now) and it was a rap for me. Cant wait for this album to come out. Real hip hop!!!!!

    Comment: The new album is amazing. Nothing will ever top Shadows On The Sun but listen to The Travelers, Babygirl, Bad Mufucka Pt. II and tell me Ali isn't the best in the game. Ali representing the 612 baby. Buy this and support REAL hip hop. How many of you know what real hip hop is?

    Comment: This album is insanely disappointing. Huge Ali fan, think every album he's put out is classic. The production is not up to par with Ant's standards, Ali's bars don't hold up to his previous work. This album has a few solid tracks, but overall, it's a mess. 2/5 Stars.
