Ali performed in front of a sold out audience at the Middle East Restaurant & Nightclub on Friday in New York City. "To everyone out there who's a little different/I say damn a magazine, these are God's fingerprints." Ali exclaimed, with the crowd responding with: "Whatever comes up comes out/we don't put our hands over our mouth." lyrics from Forest Whitiker. Ali has been reported as being a fan of Soulja Boy, though preaches that he is completely different from corporate emcees, who rap about the same ld stereotypical gangster themes.
The show finishes off in Middle East where he performed a spontaneous verse of 'Ear to Ear', rapping "What can I say/I got a brand new baby daughter on the way."
