Burnside Album Details

D.Black, Ali'yah

Fresh off of his national appearance on Jake One's White Van Music, Seattle MC D.Black has returned with his sophomore project titled Ali'Yah, released on Sportn' Life/MYX Music Label. The album explores the soulful side of hip hop. It provokes thought while also providing hard hitting beats. With production from the likes of Jake One, Vitamin D and B. Brown, Ali'Yah is a far departure from Black's debut CD. His confident flow adds layers to the music, making the album seem like a veteran created it. Laced with a spiritual essence Ali'Yah has the strength of a mass choir and leaves you feeling enthused about hip hop. It inspires, and touches you in a place that's needed, to get through the tough and trying times we live in today. It's a brilliant work that further confirms that the Northwest is still one of the world's hot beds for musical talent.
