Brother Ali

by

If Sarah Palin is really interested in someone inspirational who’s overcome adversity, she should profile this Midwest rapper. On top of his albinism and legally-blind status, he’s also gone through divorce and fought with major corporations over sponsorship, ultimately persevering to make one fine album after another. Since he’s vehemently anti-war, Palin would probably drop him quicker than LL Cool J, but it would be her loss. Anyway, Ali doesn’t need her—he’d prefer the Koran to her bible-thumping. With Fashawn and BK One.
