Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color finds Brother Ali reborn and rejuvenated. On his fourth full length studio album, Ali teams up with seasoned producer Jake One (50 Cent, De La Soul, T.I., Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa) to tell a very different American story.

Fully recharged and inspired by his eye-opening first trip to Mecca, the 2011 uprisings in the Middle East, and the worldwide Occupy movements, Brother Ali is prepared to unveil Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color. Created during a prolific, self-imposed two-month exile in Seattle and helped by platinum-selling producer Jake One, the album represents a brave new phase in Brother Ali’s remarkable career trajectory. Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color presents a scathing, yet honest, critique of America and its many flaws while simultaneously presenting a hopeful outlook of its possibilities.

Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color, in all its sonic and lyrical glory, promises to be both the voice of a burgeoning new critical American consciousness as well as the beacon of hope for those that hold fast to its ideals and potential. This is Brother Ali as you’ve never heard him before.

Colin Munroe – Unsung Hero

September 12, 2012

Colin Munroe has long considered himself an Unsung Hero in the music game, and for good reason: the Ontario-repping singer, songwriter and producer’s spent the last several years just under the national radar, creating some of the dopest, most innovative work the music industry has seen in a minute. With today’s release of his latest street album via Karmaloop, however, he’s well on his way to getting the attention he deserves. A genre-blending melange of hip-hop, pop, rock, R&B and electronic influences, the project comes on the heels of much-buzzed-about singles “Over It,” “Your Eyes” and “Invincible,” and features an appropriately eclectic slate of guest artists, including Ab-Soul, Cassie, Kendrick Lamar, K.Flay, Memoryhouse and Pusha T. In addition to Munroe’s own production, Unsung Hero packs boardwork by Boi-1da & D10, RZA and more.

Rittz – Questions 2012

September 7, 2012

Rittz – Questions 2012

Producer: QDIII

Album: Unreleased

Label: Slumerican

As described in the Strange Music boss’ recent video announcement, Tech N9ne‘s recent decision to sign Booth fave Rittz was motivated as much by his personal respect for the ATL rhymesayer’s mic skills as it was by his business savvy. Likewise, Rittz had long been a fan of Tech’s dating back to the first time he heard the Kansas City underground mainstay on Gang Related soundtrack inclusion Questions (Rough Draft). Thus, it could hardly be more appropriate that the White Jesus rapper celebrates the beginning of their working relationship with a reimagining of the aforementioned joint. Making its world premiere right here in the Booth, Questions 2012 finds the emcee lacing QDIII‘s original boardwork with a quick verse describing some of his least favorite listener queries. While this dope homage is just a one-off release, those digging it can stay tuned for all the latest as the Booth fave settles into his new home.

Madchild of Swollen Members, was on a kamikaze run with the drug oxycontin that had pushed him to the brink of oblivion. Madchild had finally hit rock bottom. His drug addiction had spiraled out of control and destroyed everything the successful emcee had worked so hard to buildwith is platinum selling hip-hop group Swollen Members. The fancy cars, lavish houses and rock star luxuries were all gone, as his addiction had consumed over 3 million dollars worth of assets and finances in just over four years.

Clean from drugs for the first time in his adult life Madchild removed himself from temptation by walking away from his previous social life and bunkering down in his home studio secluded from the outside world. For the next 10 months, Madchild feverishly wrote and recorded his first ever solo album, ‘Dope Sick’.

Not only is ‘Dope Sick’ a story of triumph over adversity but it has allowed Madchild to be reborn creatively. Unshackled from the chains of his past indiscretions Madchild has confronted his darkest emotions and used them as a source of inspiration to create one of the most insanely captivating hip-hop releases of 2012.
