Momma Raised a King – [Ali]

Screen Shot 2015-03-07 at 12.59.39 PM

Ali preaches his way onto Chicago’s rap scene with his crazy new single “Momma Raised a King.” This track is produced by close friend of Ali’s and New Kingz counterpart, Lead Lockwood. The duo has been able to produce their own sound – it is a combination of natural Chicago sounds, similar to gospel, trap, and a bit of a rock element. Ali’s voicing skills are very peculiar as he proclaims that he deserves he throne, but surprisingly he spits with a certain humbleness that draws you to keep listening. I’m eager to hear more from the New Kingz camp. Check out Momma Raised a King below and be on the lookout for Ali’s debut tape, “The Natives EP.”
