Brother Ali Arrested For Protesting At Occupy Homes MN Rally

Brother Ali was one of 13 reportedly arrested at a rally in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Brother Ali was arrested Thursday evening at an Occupy Homes MN rally in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

According to CBS Minnesota, the rapper was one of 13 reportedly arrested at the Cruz family's home in south Minneapolis. He was pinched on charges of trespassing and refusing to depart. Four hours after his arrest, Ali posted the $50 bail and left the Hennepin County Jail.

The Cruz home went into foreclosure in 2011 after PNC Bank didn't accept an online mortgage payment, and instead punished the family by imposing a fine of two months payment. They were unable to pay, and the home went into foreclosure. The court ordered authorities to evict the home on April 26th, but protesters have continued to tie themselves to the home during each attempt.

Ali is due in court on July 5th.

    Maybe this will give him the street cred that most of these faggot mainstream trap crap fans need from their artists. Shit this 4 hours in jail is more than any of the "thugs" in the game now a days claim to have done. Brother Ali is someone that you fools should look up to and respect. Props to you people below me that didn't dis-respect this man.

      True shit. Only causes most rappers get behind is "free (insert guilty nigga)". Ali was fighting to help a family in need. Only cause anyone else cares about is wearing T-shirts supporting people who are actually guilty of heinous crimes like murder, selling drugs to their own people, rape.

      LOL @ wack , go educate yourself you small minded fool.Ali is helping keep the art Hip Hop alive. Go listen to The Freeway track with Ali "the truth" if you aint back that you aint back hip hop period. God forbid a hip hop artist gets arrested for doing something positive like protesting for a struggling family and not drugs,guns,and violence. This culture and artform does not have room for people like you black. Move along son.
