Coming off two 2016 releases Traphouse Jodeci and “Private Suite” EYES & EDGE caught up with the hungry new R&B act YeAli. For a man who spent a lot of time on the move, his recent choice of stay has been Los Angeles. His music draws inspiration from the city life and his own past as well present experiences. YeAli’s songwriting aches for the stability of an invested woman while acknowledging the wandering temptations of lust. He is a man whose lyrics go beyond the R&B hits. His music resonates a deeper chord amongst the devious minds of singles spending their nights chasing club lighting in the city of Angels.
EYES & EDGE: Things are falling into place and your new album is super hot. How are you feeling since the project dropped? Ye Ali: Working on new music daily and just continuing to reach new fans. I always feel good so a positive response from the fans enhances my usual mood, a bit. Overall, I am focused on getting better and creating from a deeper place.

Dem Atlas kicked off the night with an intense performance connecting with the crowd in a way I have never seen. Up next was Brother Ali bringing great vibes and tunes the crowd enjoyed singing along to.
Then, the hammer, Atmosphere. I can not say enough great things about his set. Dropping high new energy tracks, straight into some of his classics the whole crowd knew and loved, and even proceeded to bring out Brother Ali for a song.
