Brother Ali’s “Breakin’ Dawn Tour”

Rhymesayers road dog Brother Ali kicks off another North American tour next month in support of last year’s excellent US. L.A. upstart Fashawn lends support.

Publicity stuff:

This spring, acclaimed Minneapolis rapper Brother Ali will set out on his second extensive North American tour in support of his latest album, Us. The tour, called the “Breakin’ Dawn Tour”, also features one of the biggest new hip-hop acts to break in 2009, California-based MC, Fashawn. The trek starts on March 29th in Fargo, winding its way through Canada and hits new cities in the southern and eastern regions of America. An ambitious task yes but nothing new for the dedicated and laborious Rhymesayers wordsmith – a true testament to the dedication and reach of his fans who cannot get enough. His heavy sound and thought-provoking rhymes have created a high demand by listeners from the farthest reaches of the continent. Now even more fans will have a chance to see this legend live. Upon completion of these dates, Brother Ali will have played a total of 77 North American cities in support of Us, which Pitchfork called “the most deeply thought-provoking work of Brother Ali’s career”.
