Brother Ali’s been on a break from making music — in the five years
since his last album, he’s travelled the world, studying up with
traditional Islamic scholars and deciding whether hip-hop was still
his purpose in life. The end product of that was his most recent
album, All The Beauty in This Whole Life, his most spiritual work
yet. Ali talks to Ahmed about prioritizing beauty, struggling with
judgement within radical and mosque communities, and how KRS-One is
a hip-hop sahaba. Plus, Ahmed reads some listener mail.
