[Brother Ali:]
I don’t want to see you in a screen
I want to feel you in the flesh and on the scene
I love all the words and what it mean
But it’s so much to say in the spaces in between
I don’t want to watch dots disappear
Listen here first reactions are crystal clear
I want the uncut sentiment
Before you had a chance to second guess and edit it
I love you for the first draft you
All the technology on Earth can’t improve
No special effect and no Santa Claus
Uncut, acoustic and analog
A lifetime measured in breaths
The face is a mirror that your heart reflects
And when the eyes meet, they directly connect
And that’s what you call true special effects

[DeM atlaS:]
Staring at your picture hanging nicely on the wall
Longing to be near you because life is way too short
I traveled through the night ’til morning light broke through the storm
Just to see your face again

[Brother Ali:]
I don’t want to watch your life in pictures
I’m trying to be right there with ya
We’ll be so rich at the end of all of this
We can scroll through memories without any filter
I’m trying to share life as it comes
No time-line from the night to the sun
Crème de la crème and crust and the crumbs
Let me not hear your voice in a speaker
I’m tryna feel the breath as it leaves ya
Message receieved, you best to believe
Your real life friend is requesting to see you
I’m here to watch your story unfold
I don’t really want to only be told
Everything I hold is pressed to my chest
That’s what you call special effects

[DeM atlaS:]
Staring at your picture hanging nicely on the wall
Longing to be near you because life is way too short
I traveled through the night ’til morning light broke through the storm
Just to see your face again

[Brother Ali:]
Into me you see I see
Inherit in here I hear
I give fidelity free
See my peers appear my dear
Groove to the beat that frees your mind state
Put your heartbeat on vibrate
In other words what
In other words huh

○ Listen to “Brother Ali” Songs

● “Uncle Sam Goddamn ”

[ Quotable ]
All must bow to the fat and lazy
The fuck you, obey me, and why do they hate me?
Only two generations away
From the world’s most despicable slavery trade
Pioneered so many ways to degrade a human being
That it can’t be changed to this day
Legacy so ingrained in the way that we think;
We no longer need chains to be slaves
Lord it’s a shameful display
The overseers even got raped along the way
Because the children can’t escape from the pain

● “Forest Whitiker ”

[ Quotable ]
Ayo, dependin’ on the day, and dependin’ on what I ate
I’m anywhere from twenty to thirty-five pounds overweight
I got red eyes and one of em’s lazy
And they both squint when the sun shines so I look crazy
I’m albino man, I know I’m pink and pale
And I’m hairy as hell, everywhere but fingernails

● “Breakin’ Dawn ”

[ Quotable ]
See good Lord, I’ve been waitin so long
For y’all to come out here and take me in the home
The world’s so cold with no place to belong
They said “come on in boy, sing your song”
He stepped inside and to his surprise
It was so damn fly, he can’t believe his eyes
Ate and he drank and he felt satisfied
‘Til he sat by the window and he glanced out-side
Loved ones out workin
Eyes got full and his heart start hurtin
Cause them folk been singin for years
But ain’t any one of them set foot up in here
