More than just rapping about it, Brother Ali has always been one to take action to help uplift his community. Ali sets the soundtrack to his involvement in the Occupy Homes Minnesota movement to his Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color track, “Work Everyday” (Jake One on the beat). Says Ali: “Huge shout out to Occupy Homes Minnesota for premiering our new video, ‘Work Everyday.’ The video was directed by Andrew Melby and features Tom Morello, Jackson Browne, BK-One, Slug of Atmosphere, P.O.S, I Self Devine, and a host of my close activist friends. this video is a glimpse into the incredible work that’s being done by common people who have decided to work together to demand justice. Please feel free to share and spread around!” Check our original story on the movement (and Ali’s arrest) and get more info at the Occupy Homes Minnesota website.
I like ink and alcohol.... and I listen to music every now and then.
