Get Educated.

At 33, Brother Ali has put out six lauded hip-hop albums, played to SRO crowds on several continents and made repeat appearances on national television. Legally blind and albino, he has two kids, a jillion Twitter followers and is active in a North Minneapolis mosque.

In his spare time, he's studying for his high school diploma. Celebrity notwithstanding, he wants young Minneapolitans who've drifted away from school to know how much he regrets not getting it the first time around.

At the request of Minneapolis Public Schools and Mayor R.T. Rybak, today Ali is filming a public service announcement for "We Want You Back," a campaign by the school disrict and the city's Youth Coordinating Board to lure recent dropouts back to school. (A colleague of Ali's, rapper Slug of Atmosphere recently taped his own spot with Minneapolis Superintendent Bernadeia Johnson.)

Over the next two months, the program hopes to recruit 600 community volunteers to bang on doors, text, tweet and call — or rap — to 2,000 Minneapolis youth who aren't currently enrolled in school. The goal this year: Re-enroll 200.

By even the most optimistic calculations, only two-thirds of Minneapolis Public Schools students graduate. The majority of them are poor and minority; for most, the lack of a diploma poses much bigger lifelong hurdles than it has for Ali. (Full disclosure: Ali works with my brother.)

In an interview with MinnPost, Ali opined that trouble landing a decent job is only the most obvious problem facing those who don't graduate. He's worried about Minnesota's achievement gap between minorities and whites — one of the worst in the nation — but he's also concerned about democracy, creativity and tolerance.

Here's a condensed transcript of our conversation:

MinnPost: When you were asked to get involved in "We Want You Back," what made you say yes?

Brother Ali:
When people ask me to do stuff and it's for a good cause, I almost never say no. But this one spoke to me particularly. I got married when I was still in high school, and at the time, I thought it was more important for me to get an apartment and work two jobs and stuff like that than finish high school.

They actually tried — the school [Robbinsdale's Cooper High School] reached out to me during that time and gave me the option to go to summer school and finish my degree. They let me walk in the graduation. My mom had a party for me and everything.

I still had two classes to make up in summer school. I finished one. The other one was a required class, and I made it all the way to the end. The last thing was a report and I wrote the report. That was always my strength in school, writing reports. I turned it in and it never came back, and I assumed that I was good. And I wasn't.

I had put on job applications that I had graduated from high school and I hadn't. I took some community college classes but, you know, they weren't for a particular degree so I didn't have to prove that I had graduated from high school.

Maybe seven or eight years after being out of school I tried to get a copy of my diploma, and they informed me I didn't get it. I didn't really think too much of it. I had already been touring and I was doing fine.

But I recently read the memoir of my favorite current scholar, Dr. Cornel West [a Princeton professor and author most recently of "Brother West: Living and Loving Out Loud"]. He was talking so much about this really deep education … an education that stirs something inside you and makes you want to be a better person and just really increases your base of knowledge and awareness.

It was a combination of reading his memoir and hearing what his education has done for him in terms of enriching his life and feeding his calling that he believes he has in life, which is to encourage people to learn and question.

That really inspired me, and I'm like, "Man, I'm gonna go to college." So I have been preparing to take my GED test.

I really wish I had finished up. I think a lot of people get really close, and just for whatever reason … A lot of people are like me — they have a need to worry about their here and now more than the future.

MP: You've tweeted a lot about the controversy surrounding a proposal to build a mosque near the former site of the World Trade Center in Manhattan.

I just recently spent several months overseas and really realized how under-educated and how under-informed we are as a society. Our knowledge base about really crucial topics is really shallow, and the way that we are informed is really shallow — as a society.

Like the "Ground Zero mosque" issue. I say that with quotations because it's not a Ground Zero mosque, and calling it that actually was done very intentionally to make an issue where there shouldn't be one. It's four or five blocks from the site. You can't see Ground Zero from the mosque, or won't be able to see it.

After it became an issue a group of Muslims said, "OK, well if you're going to make it this issue, this proximity to Ground Zero, let's really make this a community moment. Let's make this a teaching moment. Let's show you what it really means to be Muslim and to participate and contribute to this society we live in. Let's use this terrible tragedy to create a dialogue that should have been happening all along, so you can see that we are humble people who love God.

Since it's Ramadan, I've been re-reading the Quran cover to cover, which is a custom every year. In Ramadan, you have a month, so you divide the Quran up into 30ths and you read a 30th every day. It's the only book where God specifically says there are believers in other religions and you should respect them as believers.

It specifically mentions Christians and Jews but really says that anyone who believes in … being accountable for the way that you live your life we should value equally with ourselves. Muslims really do believe this and live our lives like this, especially in pluralistic societies like this.

We have a really shallow understanding of Islam and what it means to be Muslim these days. But we also have a really shallow understanding of our own democracy and what it really means. If we really had an understanding of democracy and of the concepts this country was founded on, we would see that it really is important to have a mosque there.

MP: Where do you want to go to college?

I haven't decided yet. Cornel West teaches at Princeton, so that seems like a good place. With a GED, I would be surprised if they took me. But I have a certain gravitas that makes me want to apply there.

It seems like a hopeless thing, but so was being an albino rapper from Minnesota — and that's kind of working.

Travie McCoy: Billionaire ft. Bruno Mars (LIVE ACOUSTIC)

Det finns någon oskriven regel om att man ska hata mainstreammusik. Den handlar bara om pengar. Den säljer ut sin själ. Den glömmer bort själva konsten och den kommer färdigpacketerad.
Men just nu är det lite skitsamma. Det är ju trots allt vad den här låten handlar om; att bli äckligt rik och kunna göra precis vad man vill när man vill. Och i det här klippet ser man ju ändå att sången och rappen inte är tusengångeromredigerad. Och det gillar vi. Sen är frågan om Travis McCoy går från GCH till Billionaire..?

Atmosphere - To All My Friends

Nytt från Rhymesayers egna Atmosphere;


Hotbilden växer

Att ingå bloggvänskap är inte enkla grejer. Om man har tillgång till någons blogg kan man ju i stort sett göra vad som helst i den personens namn, och sen är det bara en fråga om hur lång tid det tar förrän någon upptäcker att man konspirerar för att sabotera. Speciellt om bloggen i fråga har många läsare.
Skönt att DinGrinn inte går i sådana ondskefulla tankar nu när Toffer frågade om vi ville vara med och bidra lite i informationsflödet. Och det vill vi. Men det är inte utan smärre hot från Haninge..


skriv inget negativt bara
då hamnar du på twitter


Greetings From Russia

Från kommande släppet Greeting From Russia kan du nu lyssna på Queff & Denniz Primes låt Låtsas Som Du Sover.

Rekommenderar även att du tar och laddar ner låten medan du väntar på lite mer material från Väsby/ Årsta-killarna. Until then, lite smakprov på soundet;

Twin Peaks @ Mosebacke, STHLM

Kanadensiska gruppen Twin Peaks spelade igår på Mosebacke på Söder i vår kungliga huvudstad. Duon består av Munshine och Ghettosocks, som just nu är på turné i Europa. Det här var första gången de spelade i Stockholm, och förhoppningsvis är det inte sista. Det ryktas en del om samarbeten så jag håller tummen och ser vart det leder. Än så länge får Kanada bara kärlek från Stockholm. Spelningen var fet, grabbarna var sjukt trevliga och reppade verkligen Kanada, görlsen är de finaste i stan! Kvällen började igår kl 23 på Mose, och slutade 00:15 idag. Spontanitetskul är underbart!

Eminem - Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna

Alltså.. VAD är detta för video och VAFAN är detta för lyrics..? Vad försöker ni säga egentligen..?

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

I can't tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now there's a steel knife
In my windpipe
I can't breathe
But I still fight
While I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right
It's like I'm in flight
High of a love
Drunk from the hate
It's like I'm huffing paint
And I love it the more that I suffer
I sufficate
And right before im about to drown
She resuscitates me
She fucking hates me
And I love it
Where you going
I'm leaving you, No you ain't
Come back
We're running right back
Here we go again
It's so insane
Cause when it's going good
It's going great
I'm Superman
With the wind in his bag
She's Lois Lane
But when it's bad
It's awful
I feel so ashamed
I snap
Who's that dude
I don't even know his name
I laid hands on her
I'll never stoop so low again
I guess I don't know my own strength

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

You ever love somebody so much
You can barely breathe
When you're with them
You meet
And neither one of you
Even know what hit 'em
Got that warm fuzzy feeling
Yeah them chills
Used to get 'em
Now you're getting fucking sick
Of looking at 'em
You swore you've never hit 'em
Never do nothing to hurt 'em
Now you're in each other's face
Spewing venom
And these words
When you spit 'em
You push
Pull each other's hair
Scratch, claw, bit 'em
Throw 'em down
Pin 'em
So lost in the moments
When you're in 'em
It's the rage that took over
It controls you both
So they say it's best
To go your separate ways
Guess that they don't know ya
Cause today
That was yesterday
Yesterday is over
It's a different day
Sound like broken records
Playin' over
But you promised her
Next time you'll show restraint
You don't get another chance
Life is no Nintendo game
But you lied again
Now you get to watch her leave
Out the window
Guess that's why they call it window pane

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

Now I know we said things
Did things
That we didn't mean
And we fall back
Into the same patterns
Same routine
But your temper's just as bad
As mine is
You're the same as me
But when it comes to love
You're just as blinded
Baby please come back
It wasn't you
Baby it was me
Maybe our relationship
Isn't as crazy as it seems
Maybe that's what happens
When a tornado meets a volcano
All I know is
I love you too much
To walk away though
Come inside
Pick up your bags off the sidewalk
Don't you hear sincerity
In my voice when I talk
Told you this is my fault
Look me in the eyeball
Next time I'm pissed
I'll aim my fist
At the dry wall
Next time
There will be no next time
I apologize
Even though I know it's lies
I'm tired of the games
I just want her back
I know I'm a liar
If she ever tries to fucking leave again
I'mma tie her to the bed
And set the house on fire

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

Alicia Keys - Unthinkable (I'm Ready)


Stockholms Coolaste Daddy!

Ett ENORMT GRATTIS till Stockholmsyndromets Skizzo som idag blev far!



You See Me? Hi Hater!

Mitt på dansgolvet i lördags skriker någon mitt namn och efternamn. Vi är ju vänner Emilia!
Jag hade ingen aning vem det var, men det visar sig att vi pratat någon gång ute. Full snubbe på Mosebacke som inte kunde bestämma sig för om han tyckte jag var soft eller om han ville hata på mig. Efter att jag försökte förklara hundra gånger att jag gärna snackar med honom någon annan gång när jag inte är med mina polare (och han inte är så full att han knappt kan stå) så lackade han och började proklamera vilken skit som helst. Först handlade det om hur jag skulle rösta (eftersom han hade sett det på min Facebookstatus...) och att folk som röstade som jag var idioter och helt hjärntvättade.
Ja, ja, ok, ja.. var mina svar. Jag ville helst av allt att snubben skulle gå men det var lättare sagt än gjort. Vi tar det här någon annan gång ok. Så gick han två minuter och kom sen tillbaka och började skrika att jag inte var äkta eftersom jag diggar Aesop Rock. Vilket han också sett på min Facebook. Snubben hade sjuk koll på min Facebook.. Lite freaky.
Han gav sig inte. Skulle förhöra mig om hiphop och om hur äkta jag var. Klockrenaste kommentaren, och jag har aldrig fått den jämförelsen förr:
Du är precis som hon Duvetinte..Ni kan fan inte ett skit..
Det hör till saken att han var enorm och gick på mig som ett tåg. När han blev irriterad över hur lite jag var intresserad av att bevisa nåt för honom, började han skrika. Och då blev han utkastad. Sen kom vakten fram och tittade på mig med världens oroligaste ögon, klappade mig på axeln och sa Är det ok nu?
Ibland är vakter rätt fina människor.
Men när klubben sen stängde, var han där utanför och väntade.
Emilia där är du ju..
Jag sket i honom och återigen hade han bestämt sig för att inte släppa det och kom efter mig.
Asså du är en cool tjej asså kan vi inte ses nån dag så kan vi snacka? Blev du arg eller? Jag ville inte göra dig lessen asså. Jag kan lära dig saker. Asså du verkar ball...Förlåt om jag gjorde dig upprörd asså jag är lessen..

Hade du inte varit en snubbe med psykopatkoll på mig, och hade du inte varit idiotfull och haft en aggressiv ton från första början, så hade jag snackat med dig. Jag är inte en person som bråkar av ingen anledning och jag är inte kaxig med sånt här. Herregud, du är född 1977. Du är 33 bast. Get a fucking grip.
