PREMIERE: Recognize Ali x DJ TMB “Green State of Mind” Video

You’d think God would be impartial, but when Recognize Ali names his new album Allah’s Favorite, we ain’t arguing. Last year’s Too Visible To See longplayer and this year’s Diary of A Wild Child EP have solidified this lyrical beast as a name to watch. And while he has been working on three solo albums and various collab projects in 2017, Ali holds a special place in his heart for Allah’s Favorite. There’s top-shelf production by buzzing names like Eyedee, Clypto, and Sultan Mir; the guest line-up that includes King Magnetic, Hus Kingpin, Ruste Juxx, and Daniel Son; but most importantly, Ali serves up them raw raps in his trademark rasp. As good as any of the songs with features are, it’s the solos like “Under My Wings” and “Green State of Mind” that bang the hardest.

To celebrate the release we bring you the official music video for “Green State of Mind.” When a vid starts with the camera panning up from untied Tims to baggy camo pants, it’s a pretty good indicator of what kind of rap you’re about to hear. That solid boom bap. The visuals consist of nothing more than Ghana’s nicest rapping at the camera, but he spits like he can see wack MCs in the lens. While the “Green” in “Green State of Mind” refers to Ali’s hometown of Greenfield, his heavy eyelids suggest it may not be the only meaning behind the title.

You can grab Allah’s Favorite right now, right here.
