Brother Ali "Sensitive" (Audio & Video)


A smile comes to my face when I see new music from Brother Ali, especially on limited 7" vinyl. I appreciate him for continuing to share his truth & his gifts with us, openly and honestly. To that end, I'll let Brother Ali explain his vulnerable new song: "Sensitive deals with the reality that artists are often times faced with self doubt and a deep sense that the world isn't hearing us as we'd like to be heard. This one was made at a time when I'd taken too long to release new music, had medical trouble with my voice and felt like I'd alienated fans with my political statements. Typical 'tortured artist' vibe that not many people talk about in Hip-Hop, but we all experience it on one level or another." An excerpt from the song's lyrics and stream are below.

"I didn't wanna pull my heart out, let you see in it
I just wanna grow privately, be free a minute
Plus my soul don't always have peace within it
I tell the truth, but I can see that I'm conceded with it..."
