Professor A.L.I. is a Bay Area based, politically & socially conscious hip-hop artist and educator who explores global issues from vantage points of both rage and hope. He accomplishes this by taking on the persona of ‘Black Steven’ channeling the anger felt by victims of worldwide oppression, yet leaves the window open for hope of a better future through his expression as Professor A.L.I.
His music continues the traditions set by Brother J of X-Clan, KRS and Chuck D, and like the works of Immortal Technique seeks to educate through music. In light of the current trajectory of Hip-Hop, it looks like Professor A.L.I., and his XFactor album, are helping to create a new genre called Hip Hop Education.
