During a time when everyone is a rapper, and every rapper packs their verses with lies about a lifestyle they never lived, in hopes to capture your attention and love, we are fortunate to have that rare artist breakthrough and make us think twice about what music rides with us in the morning to work or joins us at the gym in the evening. When every other rapper is telling stories of riches and glamour, Ali is regular guy working in the trenches, and when every other rapper sounds the same, Ali is drawing envy from the artist he is opening for! When you leave your favorite rappers concert, and you can’t help but think about the guy that opened up the show, that’s Ali Cashius Jr.
Ali began garnering respect as a rapper on the desolate Southwest Side of Detroit. He would battle any rapper at his High School and then sneak into night clubs around the city to battle grown men at the age of 16. Because of his mixed race, he had to learn to clap back quickly at kids who would target his ethnicity. With a father from the war torn country of Yemen, and a mother from Puerto Rico, Ali was constantly questioned about his nationality. Battle rap became less important daily, as Ali grew more frustrated watching his mother struggle with two jobs. With an absent father figure and a mother who was forced to bare the role of provider, Ali was left to come and go as he pleased, roaming the gang and drug infested streets on Detroit’s Southwest side. Losing friends to gang wars and drug deals gone wrong, Ali quickly learned that the place he loved could also be his downfall.
From that moment, he realized he had to use his gift to tell his story and be a voice for the friends he lost. Financial troubles continued to follow Ali and his mother, so he decided to take matters into his own hands, and the traveling began. He moved from Detroit to Atlanta, Baltimore, and eventually Phoenix. With growth comes sacrifice, and moving led Ali to miss the funeral of one of his best friends in Detroit. A three-day Greyhound trip, and Ali arrived back in the city one hour after his friend’s funeral ended. Devastated by loss and frustration, Ali vowed to not return home until he could make his family proud and prove all the people who doubted him wrong.
Since moving out West, Ali Cashius Jr. now has followers around the world who support the movement and new wave.

Jackson, Miss.- Mississippi-based rapper/ singer/ songwriter Infinite Starr Le Flair (AKA Monroe Kush) has initiated a champagne campaign from Maine to Spain like she was running for the presidency with seductively scandalous Country Boy Music-released hit single âIâm Off.â
Since its unofficial release last April, the single has grown legs on its own and caught on like a raging wildfire. In a handful of months, it has been featured on the top six hip-hop mixtapes in the country, enjoyed more than half-a-million online streams, boasts over 100,000 physical downloads and is spinning in mixshow rotation on several select radio stations across the Mid-South.
Killing them softly with biting, bitter/sweet vocals over menacing, mid-tempo production and hypnotizing chimes, the momentum continues to grow. And Infinite has no plans of letting up any time soon.
âIâve gotten so much attention for my music because Iâm not afraid to experiment with the music and create my own sound,â she reveals. âThatâs how Iâve been able to grow my own fan base organically. A lot of people are looking for a female artist to fill that creative niche.â
Fulfilling that ânicheâ is exactly what she has been doing since dropping her smashing debut mixtape Bi Mi Self/Gotta Be Me in 2006. Since then, she has built her brand from ground up with more than a dozen mixtapes, numerous awards and fans across the South and East Coast.
Last year, she set the industry on its ear as host of Strictly 4 Traps âN Trunks mixtape entitled Mississippi Edition, featuring exclusive music from Def Jam/ Universal artist Big K.R.I.T., as well as many of the stateâs brightest underground talents including Joker 2 Cold, Lil Mal, Kamikaze and Hollywood Luck, among others.
She also teamed up with rappers Sachmoe Phlanagan and Archangel for a sizzling hot collaborative project Jack Of All Trades Street Tapes Vol. 1. The 16-track mixtape is presented by Traps-N-Trunks, DJ Bigg V and DJ 1200 and includes special appearances by DJ Scream, Zaytoven, DJ Winn and comedian JJ Williamson of Johnson's Family Vacation.
Throughout her career, she was awarded Best Female Rap Artist two years in a row by the Jackson Music Awards, nominated for Best Female Mixtape by the Southern Entertainment Awards and nominated for an Indie Music Top 25 Award by the Indie-Music Awards.
Continuing to keep the momentum going full speed ahead, she continues to top herself with latest banger âIâm Offâ and is readying the release of upcoming EP Eight Talk, scheduled to drop summer 2018.
âMy whole career has been based off grinding and selling CDs,â Infinite admits. âI grind. I have only one goal in mind, and that's showing the world that I was born to do this!â
