Brother Ali’s Left In The Deck Dropped Five Years Ago Today

Brother Ali sits comfortably among an esteemed roster over at Rhymesayers. Aesop Rock, Atmosphere and the late great Eyedea are also part of the label’s legacy which has housed some of the most respected underground rappers in the world.

The Minnesota emcee spoke to HipHopDX around the time he released Left In The Deck about his unique love of demos. “Those are my favourite versions and I could never get them in the studio the way that they felt when they were just raw.”

Left In The Deck, produced entirely by Jake One, dropped five years ago today. A collection of 10 raw unmastered recordings from around the world, Brother Ali said these songs “are intended only for my family of direct supporters.”
