He said "I need to talk to you Ali
This is what you were born to do, but not me"
So after Soundset two thousand and ten
Say goodbye to my Deejay but not my friend

from Brother Ali – Stop the Press Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Ali explained the loss of his musical team, including BK-One, in an interview w/ HipHopDX:

2010 was a big year of change for me. My deejay that I worked with forever [DJ BK-One] retired from the road. Then, Ant made two Atmosphere albums and toured for two years. So, I wasn’t able to work with people I always worked with. Then, even my engineer – I made all of my other five albums with the same engineer. Same producer, same engineer and same deejay performing it so it was like the same team of people. None of them were able to do this one. So, I worked with all new people and it made me have to approach things in different ways.
