A&E FYI: New Brother Ali EP+DVD coming March 10!


So sayeth the Rhymesayers machine:

It’s been two years since Brother Ali released the critically acclaimed
album The Undisputed Truth, and as the Rhymesayers lyrical heavyweight
and producer Ant put the finishing touches on their upcoming follow up
(Fall ‘09) the dynamic duo cap off the last two years with a new EP and a
full-length DVD called "The Truth is Here."
Nine tracks featuring two highly sought after b-sides and seven new and
previously unreleased songs including “Philistine David”, which was
featured in the Jonathan Demme directed documentary, Jimmy Carter
Man From Plains and “The Believer” a collaboration with Slug of
Atmosphere. In addition to the new EP, The Truth Is Here also contains
a full length DVD that features Brother Ali’s sold out homecoming
performance during The Undisputed Truth Tour at the legendary
First Avenue nightclub in Minneapolis as well as interviews, a special
commentary by Brother Ali, and videos of “Take Me Home” and “Uncle
Sam Goddamn” from The Undisputed Truth. The Truth Is Here captures
a key period in the career of what many have called one of the most
promising voices to emerge from the underground this century and will
be a must have for any and every Brother Ali fan.
