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.

Snoop Dogg talks his latest project, as well as his daughter’s burgeoning singing career.

While Snoop Dogg was honored at the BMI Urban Awards, the West Coast veteran had an opportunity to speak on a bevy of subjects, including his upcoming movie with Wiz Khalifa, High School.

“The movie’s done,” said Snoop in an interview with Rap-Up.com. “We’re just editing now, and the soundtrack will be out for a couple of months, so be on the lookout for that maybe January or February.”

High School will be a stoner comedy film, in a similar vein as How High and Up In Smoke.

Snoop also had a chance to speak on his daughter Cori B., who is starting her own music career. “That’s when I’ma retire, when my baby girl get her foot all the way in the game,” explained the excited father.

The up-and-comer explains that even though they haven’t collaborated much in the past, they’ll join forces in the future.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania rapper Mac Miller is gearing up to drop his label backed debut Blue Slide Park after releasing several mixtapes in the past few years, and he’s determined to blow up on his own merits. 

During an interview with BET, the 19-year-old explained why he hasn’t released any recent collaborations with Rostrum Records labelmate Wiz Khalifa. “We have one from awhile ago, but we don’t want to start doing stuff like that until I’ve got to a place where it makes sense,” he explained. “I would hate to look back at my career, I would hate to even be sitting on top of the game and be killing everything and selling millions and millions of record and feeling like I didn’t really do it.

“Not to say that Wiz and I aren’t gonna make any music in the future, because we’ll obviously make good music together but that’s not really our main focus,” he continued. “People are gonna talk and say ‘Oh Wiz is popping, so now all of a sudden Mac’s popping.’ And it really means a lot to me that people understand that I’m trying to do Mac Miller.”
