Sho Baraka releases "Ali" the first single from his upcoming album "Talented Xth" releasing via Lions and Liars on Tuesday January 15th, 2013.

Since I fucked around and had a kid, I haven't had time to make beats. But, I did come across this track on the internets and drop lyrical fried gold atop it. Dead Horse Beats, out of Toronto, is the man behind the beat.
This song is about the nagging compulsion I feel to spit hot fire, despite that my fanbase is holding steady somewhere around one persons. Good lookin' out, mom!

This song is the sum of all my most genuine fears on the path to success. I didn't try to speak for everyone when I wrote it, I just felt like I needed to express all the fear, loss and fuck it that goes on in those quiet moments away from the mic. There's triumph in the end though. When through it all you realize that there's nothing you would change. You accept the challenge and know that it only makes the success sweeter. - Trek Life
