Ali.GOOD, born Damon Mitchell, is a 23-year-old emcee from the west side of Detroit. Influenced by golden-era Nas and ’93 Cube, Ali places an emphasis on delivering unrestrained lyric-driven hip-hop based on his environment and experiences. As a student of lyricism, Ali’s music isn’t for “turning up” or sipping the latest drug. It’s for chill vibes, mental resurrection and good conversation. A newcomer to the hip-hop scene as an artist in February 2016. Ali began writing and recording his debut demo tape, Noir En Amérique — which he hopes to release by the end of the year.
