The first half of the album highlights and critiques the dire situation in which we live. The second half outlines the tremendous opportunity we have to re-imagine and reform our society. This song is an observation and a critique of our culture of death and murder. From actual war zones around the world to our own inner cities where this summer's death rates rival war zones. I also address our national hypocrisy regarding violence. We have a zero tolerance policy of violence committed against us, but we're a lot more lenient and patient when it comes to the violence we commit.

White Americans are confronted with their role in the legacy of slavery and their responsibility for the cultural and social structures it left behind. Immigrants, a child of divorced parents, and a self-hating gay teenager get a keep-your-head-up. The ostracized, leprous son of a plantation owner learns to sing from the field hands, only to reject his family's adulation of his talents when he realizes they won't let those same field hands inside their house.

Briefly homeless after his first marriage dissolved, he finally tasted success with 2007’s <em>The Undisputed Truth</em>, and now, on his fourth album’s “Fresh Air,” he’s playing Al Green records, making pancakes, and watching cartoons with his new wife and children. Happiness hasn’t blunted his keen social insight, though, as he empathizes with latchkey teens , reflects on friends trapped in the street life , and rues slavery’s consequences . For him, hip-hop means fighting for justice, and as Chuck D attests in <em>Us</em>' introduction, Ali is a “soldier in the war for love.”</p>RhymesayersFri, 25 Sep 2009 21:36:00 -0500The Freshest Kids feat.

Yet, Ali stands as one of the genre’s most highly-praised artists, defying the odds to make it happen. After battling doubt, ridicule and hardship, he grew out of his teen years with the confidence of a talented emcee and used that same grit to escape from poverty, a painful divorce and strained family ties. All of this has been well documented throughout his previous projects and while his story is an intriguing one, it seems he’s ready to shift gears on his latest offering.
