Young Ali Lets Us Into His Troubling Past Over Kendrick Lamar’s ‘FEEL’

Spending your childhood watching drug addicts shoot up and friends get shot on the daily will have lasting effects. The ones who use this experience to better their lives will prosper in their endeavors. Young Ali, who grew up in a Chicago neighborhood nicknamed “Death Valley,” is well on his way. He calls music his “release therapy,” “protecting him from self destruction.”

You’ll hear the passion in his newest record, FEEL FREEVERSE. Ali walks us through a major portion of his life over Sounwave’s haunting instrumental FEEL (off DAMN.)  His dizzying rhymes capture the statement “ain’t nobody praying for me,” repeated throughout the original track. Look out for a new project coming soon.
