Masta Ace Kickin' Real Knowledge
MASTA ACE American rapper from Brownsville Brooklyn NYC, Masta Ace became a hip-hop DJ in the 70s before adjusting to MC status by 1983. He won a rapping competition two years later which earned him studio time with producer Marley Marl, before a collegiate interlude followed. He contributed to the In Control Volume 1 set by Marl, and the latter’s label, Cold Chillin’ Records, offered him a recording contract. His 1990 debut album, Take A Look Around, was fuelled by Marley Marl’s funk throb and included the hit duet, ‘Me And The Biz’. Songs like ‘Brooklyn Battles’ attempted to look through the blood and rage circus of urban decadent rap. Masta Ace had earlier contributed to the Brand New Heavies’ Heavy Rhyme Experience: Vol. 1. His second album, released under the Masta Ace “Incorporated”. The title-track, ‘Slaughtahouse’, a clever parody on the absurd machismo of gangsta rap: ‘99 rappers wanna kill to sound ill, You couldn’t find their brains with a drill’. However, the graphic presentation of the video failed to impress MTV who banned it. The album also included the radio hits ‘Jeep Ass Niguh’ and ‘Style Wars’. Masta Ace enjoyed more success with the Crooklyn Dodgers project with Special Ed and Buckshot of Black Moon, scoring with the Spike Lee soundtrack single, ‘Crooklyn’. His third album featured the radio hit ‘Born To Roll’, but following its release little was heard of Masta Ace in the mainstream media. He remained busy on the underground scene, however, releasing a series of singles and collaborating with several artists. The rapper broke his album silence in 2001 with the release of “Disposable Arts”.
Masta Ace - Acknowledge (High & Mighty Diss)
“Disposable Arts” became one of the most acclaimed underground hip hop releases of 2001, beloved for its pure hip hop style and clever album concept, which served as a fictional story, chronicling Ace’s time spent at a satirical rap school named the “Institute of Disposable Arts”. JCOR Records folded soon after the release, leaving it out-of-print, until being re-released in 2005 on Ace’s self-established M3 label. The album closer, “No Regrets”, led many fans to believe that it would be Ace’s final album, because of the line “I Don`t Know If It`s End,But Yo,It Might Be” Ace killed the rumors by returning in 2004 with his fifth album “A Long Hot Summer” another highly acclaimed effort. The story concept, similar to that on his last release, served as a prelude to the story told on “Disposable Arts”, chronicling the “Long Hot Summer” that led to his character’s incarceration at the beginning of the “Disposable Arts” album. Rumors once again spread about a retirement, which were again squashed, when Ace announced the formation of his new rap crew named eMC including himself, Punchline,Worsworth. Ace remarked in a December 2006 interview that he would no longer record as a solo artist, only with eMC.

eMC’s first group album, “The Show” was scheduled for early 2007 but was released in February 2008 digitally and April 2008 physically. In 2007, Masta Ace had a track included on the “Official Joints” Official Mixtape, a compilation of previously unreleased tracks by various NYC rappers.In 2009, Masta Ace joined forces with legendary Boston rapper Edo G to release “Arts & Entertainment” which was released on November 3, 2009.”Arts & Entertainment” got shortened to A&E which resulted in the cable TV channel A&E asking Masta and Edo to remove the symbol from their original album artwork. The albums already printed have been sold at live shows following the release of the record.In 2011 and in 2012 he coaches high school football for the Irvington Blue Knights in NJ. In 2012, Masta Ace is set to release “MA DOOM Son Of Yvonne”, produced entirely by MF Doom, as well as a 10th anniversary release of Disposable Arts, featuring new recordings of songs from the album with a Live Band.. The same site interviewed Masta Ace and he explained that “Son of Yvonne” helps him put across the things he didn’t get to say to his mother before she died. The beats on the album are sourced from the “Special Herbs” series of instrumental mixtapes by Metal Face..Doom did not directly collaborate with Masta Ace in the production of this album, instead merely signing off on the beats. The album features appearances from the legendary Big Daddy Kane, Pav Bundy, Reggie B, Milani the Artis and a verse from MF Doom. The album was released on July 17, 2012 via M3 Records and Fat Beats Records.
