Brother Ali is back to doing what he does best; making hip-hop music with some substance. His newest album, Us delves into the deep issues of the human condition; the strengths and flaws that make us all human. “Breakin’ Dawn” is the second official video from the album, which was released September 22, 2009. The video is an epic five-minute tale, beautifully drawn by animators Rob Engle, Dave Irion, and Evan Sheldon. You can also find Brother Ali on the “How the Grouch Stole Christmas Tour” with The Grouch, Eligh, and Los Rakas.
