class=img_thumbleft>Aspiring hip-hop producers, don't wait to read the City Pages cover story
about Brother Ali
, or to check out online extras (including some goodies at my blog
), before you pick up an a capella version of Ali's "Original King" from Fifth Element
in Minneapolis and give it a new beat. Run Ya Jewels
will be hosting a "Brother Ali Remix Contest
" next Tuesday, April 17, at the Dinkytowner
in Minneapolis; 21+, 10:00 p.m. $3 admission/$10 to enter contest. Special Rhymesayers guest judges will be on hand, so it should be a treat for spectators in any case.
