Just Announced: Brother Ali @ Fox Theatre | 10/13/12

Z2 Entertainment is proud to present Mourning America Tour Feat. Brother Ali with Blank Tape Beloved, Homeboy Sandman, DJ Sosa & The Reminders at the Fox Theatre on Saturday, October 13th.  Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, June 29th for $15.00 in advance and $18.00 day of show.

Brother Ali is hitting the road this fall to celebrate the release of his new album Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color dropping August 21st. Ali will be accompanied by his new band, Blank Tape Beloved, a 5 piece ensemble that incorporates Jake One's thundering drums with a powerhouse horn section, keys and guitar. He'll be joined on the road by Homeboy Sandman, the newest emcee signed to Stones Throw Records as well as The Reminders, a hip- hop duo from Colorado.

Fully recharged and inspired by his eye-opening first trip to Mecca, the 2011 uprisings in the Middle East, and the world wide Occupy movements, Brother Ali is prepared to unveil his fourth full-length offering Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color. Created during a self-imposed two-month exile in Seattle and helmed by platinum-selling producer Jake One (50 Cent, T.I., Wiz Khalifa), the album presents a scathing yet honest critique of America and its many flaws while simultaneously presenting a hopeful outlook of its possibilities. Preceded by the release of free music downloads with accompanying music videos such as “Shine On," "Writer’s Block,” and “Not A Day Goes By," Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color is the pièce de résistance.

In an age of hip-hop where the paradigm of swag over substance reigns supreme, few emcees are willing to use their platform to tackle the hot-button topics and pressing social maladies of our time - but it’s apparent that Minneapolis-based hip-hop artist Brother Ali is one of those few. Over the course of 14 tracks with assists from esteemed author/ professor Dr. Cornel West, revered Southern hip-hop icon Bun B, and Def Poetry Jam poet Amir Sulaiman, the album brazenly holds a mirror to the idiosyncrasies of American life while simultaneously painting a vibrant portrait of its wondrous potential.
