Chi Ali Documentary

In case you didn't already know, murdering a fellow human being is not a good thing to do. For those who don't remember, Chi Ali was the youngest member of The Native Tongues. He started rapping when he was 14 making guest appearances on songs by Black Sheep and De La Soul. His one and only album, The Fabulous Chi Ali came out in 1992. The album became an instant classic of The Golden Era. In 2000, he committed the crime of murdering his girlfriend's brother. He was arrested in 2001 and began serving a 14-year sentence for the offense. He will be released in two years. Man, seems like it was just yesterday that I was hearing the news of him being locked up. Can't believe dude is going to be released in a few years. Very interesting to watch a man discussing how his life went wrong.
