Brother Ali presents the Undisputed Truth tour

Lots of heads hate on Rhymesayers. The backpacks, the earnest boom bap rhymes, the multicultural lineup … it’s all very oppressive. But you can’t knock their hustle. Over this decade, the Minneapolis crew built a reputation as indie-rap road warriors, carving out territory from major markets like New York City to small college towns like Humboldt, Calif. and Gainesville, Fla.

So it’s only natural that Brother Ali would set off his forthcoming album The Undisputed Truth with a huge 40+ date tour (following a warm up date at the Paid Dues Festival). After you purchase the album on April 10, you can go see the big man in the flesh alongside DJ BK One, with hot prospect Psalm One opening and Twin Cities hypeman Toki Wright hosting. Trama, Reef the Lost Cauze, One Be Lo and Boom Bap Project will join him in select cities. Tour dates are below.
