Hip Hop Album Of The Year,
By A Customer
This review is from: Disposable Arts (Audio CD)
This album may only be available on import at the moment but if you have the money buy it (if you don't borrow or beg for the money to get it!). The lyrical content of this album is amazing. At a time when Nas returns once again with a lame album Masta Ace has provided us with a real show stopper from the shadows of Hip Hop. He sounds like a man on a mission, intent on telling stories in an original, realistic way but never boring us. The beats are phat, the hooks grab your attention, the skits are even funny and how often can you say that, the interplay between MC's is often incredible, all in all its a mind blowing album. When I thought Hip Hop was loosing the ability to produce accesible classics Masta Ace has provided one, so don't sleep on it. This is without doubt my album of 2001 and it has only just come out, impressive. If you love Hip Hop whether you are a Biggie, Nas, Jay Z fan or you are an underground head you'll appreciate what a five mike classic this album is.
