This EP is fire from front to back. BA is my favorite emcee in the game today, his flow, delivery, and lyrical content really set him apart from other emcees, espescially on the underground. I for one live for this underground hip hop, but a lot of it tends to be redundant. Brother Ali has a style unlike any other emcee I have ever heard, and believe it or not, Ive done heard em all. The only reason this album doesnt get 5 stars is because of the length. I get sad everytime its over, and its over relatively quick. I cannot wait for his next full length release, because this album and shadows on the sun have me on the edge of my seat, waiting for more. Standout tracks include "self taught", "rain water", and "love on display". Those are my favorites at least, but all of them are fire, and any other person could pick out a totally different list. BA puts tons of emotion in this EP, and really defines himself as one of the most heartfelt artists in music today.
