The sound consists of my favorite elements in music: grunge, electronic &amp; hip-hop.

Aloe Blacc shows up as the the omniscient narrator of the video. Like the lyrics in the hook, he embodies the everyday environment the guys live through. The video comes full circle at the end when the MC's, Babu, and their spinners come together for the third verse performance in the iconic LA River. <br /><br /> <object width="560" height="315" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/S_imIk4eU08?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/S_imIk4eU08?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" /><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /></object><br /><br /><strong> Buy <em>Directors of Photography</em> NOW : </strong><br /><br />- <strong>DIGITAL: iTunes: </strong>http://bit.ly/DOPitunes<br />- <strong>PHYSICAL: Fifth Element: </strong>http://bit.ly/DOP_FE <br /><br /> http://rhymesayers.com/dilatedpeoples<br /> Dilated Peoples on Twitter: http://twitter.com/dilatedpeo...</p>RhymesayersTue, 04 Nov 2014 10:09:00 -0600Brother Ali elaborates on playing Boston, talks week six on the "Home Away From Home" tour.http://rhymesayers.com/news/1959http://rhymesayers.com/news/1959<p>The "Home Away From Home" tour hits the North East. <strong>Brother Ali </strong>checks in with us from the tour van and talks about how crazy Boston gets on Halloween! <br /><br /> <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/rCbXmAf1kVw" width="560" height="315"></iframe> <br /><br /><strong> Full list of remaining dates:</strong><br /> October 30 - Providence, RI - Met Cafe<br /> October 31 - Boston, MA - Middle East<br /> November 1 - Burlington, VT - Higher Ground<br /> November 4 - Montreal, QC - Phi Centre<br /> November 5 - Toronto, ON - Tattoo <br /> November 6 - London, ON - London Music Hall<br /> November 7 - Ithaca, NY - The Haunt <br /> November 8 - Cleveland, OH - Grog Shop <br /> November 10 - Columbus, OH - Skully's <br /> November 11 - Ann Arbor, MI - Blind Pig<br /> November 13 - Madison, WI - High Noon<br /> November 14 - Chicago, IL - Reggie's <br /><br /><strong> Connect with Brother Ali:</strong><br /> facebook.com/brotherali<br /> twitter.com/brotherali<br /> instagram.com/brotheraliisblind<br /> rhymesayers.com/brotherali<br /> brotheral...</p>RhymesayersThu, 30 Oct 2014 11:05:00 -0500Hail Mary Mallon Bestiary Packaging Revealed!http://rhymesayers.com/news/1958http://rhymesayers.com/news/1958<p>Get a closer look at ALL 3 COVERS of the physical packaging for <strong>Hail Mary Mallon</strong> 's <strong><em>Bestiary</em></strong>, coming in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS! <br /><br /> <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/4GmCeaqe7lA" width="560" height="315"></iframe> <br /><br /> Pre-order physical copies from <strong>Fifth Element</strong> at http://bit.ly/Bestiary</p>RhymesayersThu, 30 Oct 2014 10:27:00 -0500Brother Ali recaps the Southern states, his health and Boston on Halloween. http://rhymesayers.com/news/1957http://rhymesayers.com/news/1957<p>This snapshot into life on the road was shot and directed by <strong>Brother Ali</strong>'s multi talented tour mate <strong>Bambu</strong>.
