Brother Ali - Work Everyday
This is my favorite song off of Brother Ali’s new album “Mourning In America And Dreaming In Color”. As always, Brother Ali’s lyrics and delivery act as the driving force behind his work. He is the definition of “real hip-hop”, as in that he’s NEVER made one song that goes against his beliefs. I didn’t like the exceptionally brief chorus at first, but the more I listened to Work Everyday, the more I began to understand the song. I realized the short potent cries of having to “work everyday” are extremely appropriate for the average American’s whimper of desperation for their hopeless/endless life of labor…only more musical though. Not to mention Brother Ali low-key adds his 2 cents in each chorus. It took me a couple listens to realize this. If you like Work Everyday, some of my other favorite songs by Brother Ali include Forest Whitaker, Good Lord, and Lookin’ At Me Sideways. Here are the LYRICS to Work Everyday, which I recommend you read while you listen to this song.
