"Tight Rope" is one of my favorite tracks from US. It covers three separate stories of people struggling with hardships in their lives. Ali's rhyme skills, vivid storytelling ability, and grown-up attitude about a specific issue that far too many people are childish and ignorant about, make this one of my favorite Hip Hop songs to come along in a while.
I really hope everyone has heard this song (and the album) by now, so here is a studio version that Brother Ali recorded (taken from the site yourstru.ly). It was great to see him perform this (and many other songs) live this past year in Columbus, OH.
