"Chill Ali"

I’m a University at Buffalo junior, but very in tune with the local scene of hip hop, and honestly I love how Buffalo is starting to grow its art community. Recently I’ve been put on to a Buffalo artist by the name of Chill Ali. This guy, I tell you has it. He has the extra niche to expand Buffalo’s music scene into the light of the world.

The artist’s NY style vintage fashion, plus the deep lyrics in some of his storytelling abilities are bar none the best around Buffalo… and I listen to everybody. There’s just something about him – the Buffalo community should definitely tune into Chill Ali. Here’s a link to take a listen.

He recently dropped a vibe on behalf of his young brother who was incarcerated. You can hear WIVB news clips in the outro. Please take a listen, and check out Pac Warned Us. Let’s support fully. - JG (Buffalo Rising)

"The Wonder Theatre [Mixtape]"

Here is a new project from Buffalo’s indie artist Chill Ali titled The Wonder Theatre and I can say from start to finish this body of work can hold water next too a few heavyweights in the industry today. The tape seems too come together creatively as a movie thru the eyes of Chill as the songs provide the soundtrack of the day to day life of a 23 year old emcee. From vibes like “They Gone Do” too the visual assisted “MisGuided” the tape has a balance of both sides of rap. Trust me this is a sleeper. And we all need too wake up too Chill Ali. - The Daily Dose

"Chill Ali Drops New Track “Free Energy”"

Buffalo rapper Chill Ali is an artist who has the ability to keep his flow “chill” at all times. His latest track “Free Energy” is a testament to that, as Ali takes on real life hardships while still committed to the style that we’ve come to love. While speaking of friends and family who are users (“you give em what they’re asking for, but now they’re coming back for more.”) and watching other rappers stretch the truth (“a bunch of actors, how you play that tough?”)

Ali’s flow is composed as ever. It’s one of his realest songs to date, and an exciting hint at future material from one of the city’s coolest. Keep an eye out for a Chill Ali project in the near future, and check out the track below. - Buffablog

"Chill Ali Drops Video for “Misguided”"

Buffalo rapper Chill Ali is an artist whose sound is a perfect representation of his name. His songs are expected to feature smooth flows and an overall calm and relaxing vibe. On “Misguided,” Ali’s effortless presence on the mic makes the song a nice head-bobber, but the heavier lyrics take this track to the next level.

“Misguided” is Ali’s description for the youth that are forced to grow up without good parental figures, or parents at all. Their lives without guidance can lead to mischievous or even criminal behavior that could’ve all been avoided had they had someone in their life to point them in the right direction. When they’re left to fend for themselves, morality unfortunately can be thrown out the window. It’s a great message, and one that should always be remembered when you hear about young people acting up in the news. Ali is a good enough rapper to relay this message in a song that happens to be buttery-smooth as well as conscious. - Buffablog

"Chill Ali Drops “Paypa Thin” Video"

Chill Ali remains a model of consistency within the Buffalo rap scene. Within the Rich Slave umbrella, Ali has been a beacon of consistently chill releases for the last couple of years. Much like in his previous work, “Paypa Thin” has the dichotomy of smooth music but striking lyricism. Extremely personal lines, like Ali’s relationship with his mother and their struggles in finding safe places to stay, can get lost with your natural inclination to bob your head to his music. “Paypa Thin” in particular has a great beat to get lost in, with vocals samples from the same world as Ty $’s latest work with Kanye appearing within the production. Always chill, but multifaceted at the same time, Ali has come through again with a nice track. Peep below. - Buffablog

"Chill Ali’s Dope Debut before the Debut"

There are so many different styles in hip-hop, but there’s always refreshing about songs that take a personal, narrative approach. Buffalo hip-hop artist Chill Ali flexes his empirical muscles on T H R O W A W A Y S, a mixtape of tracks that didn’t make the cut for his upcoming album #FREEYAMIND.

One of the standout tracks, “Shit on You,” is Ali’s description of his special relationship his boo. Over a chill instrumental, Ali talks of how superior she is to the other ladies. It’s honest and genuine. He even goes as far as saying he wishes for her every night at 11:11, which is not only a cool bar, but also pretty damn meaningful because there’s so many things to wish for. “Fake 1z” is a gripping story about chasing success and avoiding betrayal. No spoilers, but it’s an impressive feat in songwriting and a track that I can’t believe isn’t making it on the album. It definitely could be “The Firm” influenced.

There’s also a snippet of “Gone,” that I’m presuming we’ll eventually see the full version of on #FREEYAMIND. Backed by a great beat from D.R.U.G.S, and a catchy chorus from Ali, it’s a song that I’m looking forward to checking out completely. Check out the album stream below to preview more of Chill Ali as he readies the release of his debut album, #FREEYAMIND - Buffablog
