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.
