Update: Congrats to Chris Gary. He and a guest will be our guests at the show this evening.
Tonight, in support of his just released album, Us, Brother Ali hits the Ogden Theatre in the company of Evidence, Toki Wright and BK One. We've got tickets to the show. Wanna go? Drop us a line with the answers to the following questions, for your chance to win: What is Brother Ali's given name? What's the name of the famed albino MC's first demo, the cassette tape that reportedly attracted the attention of Rhymesayers Entertainment? Finally, what was Us, the new album, originally going to be titled? Got the drop? Hit us up. We'll pick a winner at random later this afternoon. In the meantime, check out Brother Ali's new album after the jump.
