BROTHER ALI: UK tour dates announced

He dropped arguably the best hip-hop long-player of 2009 so it’d be rude not to pop along and catch the man, should you find Brother Ali round your way in March. And while locating a good hip-hop LP these days is more difficult than finding a job; finding out if Ali’s in your hood couldn’t be simpler – details below:
(PRESS RELEASE) Brother Ali has announced a run of UK headline dates next month. The rapper, signed to Rhymesayers Entertainment, released his latest album “Us” last year to much critical acclaim and played his first headline show at a sold-out Barfly in London after having previously been over as support for Atmosphere at their sold-out Koko and Scala shows.
