In this episode of ‘Who’s Next’ Ali Altalib performs his song Rest In peace. Ali states: “This song was inspired by the passing of someone very special, who was like an older brother to me. He returned to the Most Merciful a few years ago at the tender age of 35. This had a profound effect on me and a few days after his passing, I decided to write some of my feelings down in a spoken word format. My wife convinced me to add a beat to it and turn it into a rap song. I’ve held it close to the chest ever since, but I heard about this competition, I decided it would be a good way to pay tribute to him, and possibly allow others who lost loved ones to relate. I am 32 years old and I reside in Sterling, VA.”
