Teaming with Okayplayer, this is the Masta Ace New Video Story of Me which is the brand new video from the Hip-Hop veteran.

Guest appearances on the record come from Pearl Gates and Denez Prigent and takes us original Masta Ace fans back to his earlier work. Our friend Alex Ghassan has directed the video and also a shout out to Kic Beats who produced the track. When speaking about Story of Me, Masta Ace said,

“This video is a journey back to my roots as an artist and as a person. I return to Brownsville, the neighborhood where I was raised and Coney Island, the exact location of the photo shoot from my debut album (which I hadn’t returned to since the original shoot in 1990). Alex and his team did a tremendous job showing Brownsville and CI in a way they have never been seen before. The beauty of the shots and my spiritual connection to the locations make this arguably the best video I have ever released.””

Masta Ace Disposable Arts Interview

Masta Ace Disposable Arts Interview

Masta Ace Disposable Arts is without question a Hip-Hop classic. In the second video from the “Kings of New York” series, Hip-Hop Kings present the Masta Ace Disposable Arts interview.

When Hip-Hop Kings owner Ryan Maxwell went to New York, Masta Ace was one of the first interviews conducted for The Kings of New York series. Masta Ace has recently re-issued  his classic album “Disposable Arts” as the physical went out of circulation. Masta Ace discusses the process behind the re-issue and talks about his favourite tracks from the record, along with the legnedary “Take a Walk”.

Later on in the interview, Masta Ace talks about the new two-hour documentary which celebrates the 20th anniversary of the album. Below System Records were responsible for making the re-issue and documentary happen, in partnership with Ace. If you haven’t seen the Masta Ace Disposable Arts documentary I highly recommend watching, as it’s a fantastic insight into the creation and history of the album.

Finally, the very last question confirms that Masta Ace is already working on a documentary of A Long Hot Summer nad filming has began. Please make sure you subscribe to the HHKMusic YouTube channel and share the video with a friend. You can watch the Masta Ace Disposable Arts Interview on the YouTube player below.

Masta Ace To Re-Release “A Long Hot Summer” With Two Bonus Tracks

I love debate in Hip-Hop. The diverse opinions among fans and artists regarding the greatest albums, artists and producers are a regular discssion point. However, not many argue that Masta Ace’s “A Long Hot Summer” doesn’t belong in a top 5 album list. Me included (definitely top 3) so the news that reached us today had to be shared.

Masta Ace will be re-releasing the classic “A Long Hot Summer” via Belo System Records. The 2004 classic re-release will also feature two brand new tracks, and also contain the legendary singles such as “Good Ol Love”, “Beautiful” and “Bklyn Masala”. Guest appearances include the familiar names of Wordsworth, Edo G, The Beatnuts, Razhel, Jean Grae and more.

Fans can pre-order the re-release from the Below System website above.
