Going over Kanye (or Diddy’s) I’m So Appalled, via 2dopeboyz.
We had 15 inches of snow in Minnesota over the past few days. My holiday was over a month ago and I’ve been stuck in my house the last few days. To entertain myself, I chopped up a Kanye West song called “I’m So Appalled” and did a super rough homemade recording of some bars. This is what I do when I’m bored!
The Presence of Greatness.
Last week I flew out to New York to sit in with The Legendary Roots Crew on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. I’m a huge fan of these dudes. Questlove is one of the greatest producers/band leaders of all time, Black Thought is among the greatest MC’s and The Roots are in my top 10 most influential Hip Hop groups. -Look for an article on my top 10 later this week.- We played “The Preacher” and “Tight Rope” along with a few freestyle pieces. It’s a shame that most of what we did was during the commercial breaks but here’s the entire episode from last Tuesday.
Poppin’ bottles with Jimmy and The Roots.

Brother Ali is Hip Hop’s formidable Road Warrior. He tours at a relentless pace, something that is not only integral to his music career, but his actual musical output. His fan base is grassroots grown, and one that relates to Ali on a variety of levels. On his recent album, Us, Ali puts that relationship, as well as a plethora of others, front and center with the goal to bridge the gap between his friends and his fans. During a recent tour stop in Chicago, Ali sat down with RubyHornet.com’s DJ RTC to talk relationships, touring, and more. Check it out.
