Accompanied by Evidence, Toki Wright, and BK-One, the Fresh Air tour's main goal is to promote this new album, "Us." Those looking for some hip-hop to smoke a blunt and drink a 40 to will be somewhat disappointed. Apart from "BadMuf*cker Pt. 2," Brother Ali forgoes most of the chest pounding found in a lot of rap today and instead presents his audience with more of a sermon. At times, the album even features a gospel choir and organ, all the while Brother Ali rhymes sincerely on a host of issue people face today. He touches on everything from a young kid with divorced parents to the effect of slavery on African-Americans today. Whatever the topic though, Brother Ali is a master lyricist.
