Masta Ace has always managed to remain current and
totally classic in the exact same breath. In his 1988 lyrical
debut, he took a stand along side Big Daddy Kane, Kool G. Rap and
Craig G on hip hop's most important posse cut, ‘The Symphony'. His
first full length album, the Marley Marl produced Take A Look
Around (1990), established the rookie emcee as a sophisticated
voice from the ghetto.
Slaughtahouse (1993) was an ingenious conversation with hip hop, as
Ace and his incorporated crew took on the entire gangsta rap genre.
In 1995, his Sittin' On Chrome LP unified American car culture as a
celebration of rims and rides and rap music. Then after a 6 year
hiatus, Ace caught the world off guard with the epic Disposable
Arts (2001). This classic theme album, complete with plot, main
characters and score, played like a feature film on wax. A Long Hot
Summer, (2004), was the prequel to Disposable Arts. These two
“flicks”, were connected, and although Ace was the only actual
recurring character, the storylines blended together in a well
thought out arrangement.
In 2004 he announced that “…Summer” would be his fifth and final
solo album. It seems that he was planning a unique and different
way to continue making contributions to Hip Hop. Ace has teamed up
with Wordsworth, Punchline and Stricklin to form the new group EMC.
All three were featured heavily on his last two releases and the
chemistry that resulted was undeniable. The album, "The Show" will
be released this summer on M3 Records, an upstart independent label
formed by Ace and his partners “Filthy Rich” and “DJ Rob”.
