   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.

The Power of Nightmares - "The Rise of the Politics of Fear" (Full MUST SEE Documentary)

The Power of Nightmares - "The Rise of the Politics of Fear" 
(Full MUST SEE Documentary)

The Power of Nightmares - "The Rise of the Politics of Fear", is a BBC documentary film series, written and produced by Adam Curtis. The series consists of three one-hour films, consisting mostly of a montage of archive footage with Curtis’s narration, which were first broadcast in the United Kingdom in late 2004 and have been subsequently aired in multiple countries and shown in several film festivals, including the 2005 Cannes Film Festival.
The Power of Nightmares - "The Rise of the Politics of Fear" 
(Full MUST SEE Documentary)

The films compare the rise of the American Neo-Conservative movement and the radical Islamist movement, making comparisons on their origins and noting strong similarities between the two. More controversially, it argues that the threat of radical Islamism as a massive, sinister organised force of destruction, specifically in the form of al-Qaeda, is in fact a myth perpetrated by politicians in many countries—and particularly American Neo-Conservatives—in an attempt to unite and inspire their people following the failure of earlier, more utopian ideologies. Episodes included: Baby It’s Cold OutsideThe Phantom Victory and The Shadows in the Cave.

SHIRT KINGS: PIONEERS OF HIP HOP FASHION - A new Dokument Press book by Edwin PHADE Sacasa & Alan KET Foreword by MC Serch

A new book by Edwin PHADE Sacasa and Alan KET

Foreword by MC Serch

LL reppin Farmers Blvd!
"Shirt Kings brought the hip hop element into the clothes for real and integrated it, and it was the first time I saw hip hop culture completely merged with clothing."
- LL Cool J

Jamaica, Queens, New York in the mid 1980s. Rappers and hip hop fans came from all over the city to get their own customized t-shirt by The Mighty Shirt Kings. The style traveled all over the world through record covers and music videos, and the Shirt Kings designs soon became synonymous with hip hop and the 
culture of making something out of nothing.

Shirt Kings "Strictly Buisness"

SHIRT KINGS: PIONEERS OF HIP HOP FASHION looks at the early days of urban fashion through the lens of the pioneering group of artists known as the Shirt Kings. By adapting the graffiti skills from the trains and spray cans to shirts and airbrush they created a new look for a new generation. At the same time they laid down the ground for the streetwear industry of today. Edwin PHADE Sacasa is a founding artist of the group and it is through his archives that we are transported to the 1980s in New York City where the fashion was loud, colorful, and filled with cartoon imagery; but not just any cartoon imagery for the cartoons where urbanized. Mickey Mouse with a Fila suit, Casper the Friendly Ghost with gold teeth and Pink Panther with gold chains.

People from across the city made their way to Jamaica, Queens to a small shopping mall known as the Coliseum where you could easily bump into the biggest names in hip hop of the day. From DJ Red Alert to LL Cool J to Big Daddy Kane to Mike Tyson ˆ they all had to have their Shirt Kings designs.

SHIRT KINGS: PIONEERS OF HIP HOP FASHION chronicles the art, the styles, and the people who where loyal supporters of the Shirt Kings, and takes us on a trip down memory lane to when customization and art reigned supreme in New York City.
