Rhymesayer Brother Ali is back with his first official release in five years. On All The Beauty In This Whole Life, he contrasts intensely heavy times with joyous ones. As soulful and conscious as ever—call it hip hop gospel if you will—with all 15 tracks produced by Ant of Atmosphere. Listen to the new single “Own Light (What Hearts Are For)” below, and stay tuned for the full album on May 5th.

 “Each of my albums are the result of the pain, growth and eventual healing that I experience. Articulating the pain and navigating the healing allows the people who really feel my music to travel with me. It’s not only that we hurt together, we heal together as well. Every word and note of this album is intended to either reflect beauty, or expose the ugliness that blocks us from living lives of meaning.” – Brother Ali
