Brother Ali

Find yourself needing more hip hop in your life? Mainstream rap just not cutting the mustard anymore? Well, LA Music Blog in conjunction with Goldenvoice is here to help because we have TWO pairs of tickets to the Brother Ali, Blank Tape Beloved, Homeboy Sandman with DJ Sosa, and The Reminders show at El Rey Theatre this Saturday (October 27th), and we are giving them away!

Brother Ali is a rare breed of MC from Minneapolis, Minnesota who is signed to the illustrious Rhymesayers Entertainment label. He first hit the underground scene with a cassette tape-only release of his first LP, Rites of Passage, which landed him his deal with Rhymesayers. In 2003, Ali released the critically acclaimed Shadows on the Sun. The album was embraced by the underground hip-hop community and established Ali as a top contender amongst the growing talent pool of the genre.

Ali has released 3 more LPs since Shadows on the Sun with his latest, Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color, coming out this year. That album was produced by Jake One, who has produced for the likes of Ghostface Killah, De La Soul, MF DOOM, Cypress Hill, 50 Cent, Freeway, Kendrick Lamar, and even a song for fun. Brother Ali will be performing with his band Blank Tape Beloved, and it promises to be a very exciting event.

Homeboy Sandman is a musician and rapper from Queens, NYC who is newly signed to underground label Stones Throw Records. He will be touring off his new album, First of a Living Breed, and two recent EPs, Subject: Matter and Chimera, and he’ll also be joined by Washington D.C. DJ, DJ Sosa.

And last but not least you got Aja Black and Big Samir performing as The Reminders, whose music is a mix of neo-soul and underground truth rap. They have played shows with the likes of KRS1, Snoop Lion, and Mos Def and should make an excellent addition to the concert.
