VIDEO: Brother Ali Shares His Daughter’s Love For “Uncle Freeway”; Updates On Status Of Collabo Project


Last week, featured Rhymesayers Entertainment’s Brother Ali in an exclusive interview where he spoke on his last release, The Bite-Marked Heart, his upcoming album, Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color, the new music he’s created with Jake One, and a slew of other topics.

Today (March 15) we’ve got Ali speaking on his close friend and fellow rapper Freeway, who his daughter refers to as “Uncle Free” and when fans can expect their highly-anticipated collaborative project. Here’s a hint: it’s going to be a while.

The last time Ali spoke on the project was in early November when the MC from Minneapolis told HHDX, “The album with [Freeway] is still way too early to talk about. We’re definitely going to keep making that one but it’s way too soon to start talking about. I don’t like to start the excitement to try to get people excited about stuff way early because then it feels like, ‘Come on, you’re taking forever,’ and it’s like, ‘No, I’m just taking the time that I need to take.'”

Ali first hooked up with Freeway in 2008 on Jake One’s “The Truth” from the producer’s White Van Music, and the two MCs came together again one year later for “Best At It,” which also featured Joell Ortiz and was featured on Ali’s album Us.
