Midnight In A Perfect World: Brother Ali & Last Word


Minneapolis MC, community activist, and KEXP favorite Brother Ali has been a fixture within the hip-hop community for the past 17 years. He debuted on his long-time label Rhymesayers in the year 2000 with Rites Of Passage, the first of six studio albums that have showcased his deeply personal, socially conscious, and inspiring brand of hip-hop. For this special exclusive mix for Midnight in a Perfect World, he’s joined by Twin Cities DJ, producer, and touring partner Last Word of the Get Cryphy DJ crew. Currently on tour across North America in support of Brother Ali’s new album All This Beauty In This Whole Life, they’ve combined forces to create a mix to bring people together through care and love for one another, all through the power of music.
