Today we’d like to introduce you to T. Ali.
Hi Ali, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I am an artist and producer born in the Bronx but raised in Baltimore. I’ve been making music for about 10 years. I’ve released about 3 official projects since then. I used to shadow producers and intern at studios coming up, and in doing that, I learned everything I know now about the music industry and just about music in general.
Can you talk to us about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
NOT. It’s been the hardest and most interesting journey. But I don’t think any worth road traveling is smooth, though. Fake promoters have scammed me, I’ve had my ideas stolen, lost lots of money, and I almost quit a few times.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I perform, write, and produce 90% of my music, and I recently began trying my best at acting. I have two solo LPs on all streaming platforms called UNDFND & Since We’re Being Honest. I have a lot of things to be proud of, but I think for me, creating two bodies of work pretty much alone and seeing those creations digested and respected in my community and throughout the world. The feeling that comes from seeing people appreciate my music is indescribable. What sets me apart from others is that rules or limitations do not bind me regarding my creativity. I’m not afraid to explore different sounds and methods of creating. I prefer not to stick to one formula.
Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
I love everything about Baltimore, but my favorite part is the art culture here. This is a special city that breeds very special people. We’ve lost a lot of the special people I mentioned to that. What I like the least about this city is the violence.
