If you look at Masta Ace’s complete discography, you will likely note that the Brownsville, Brooklyn MC/producer gives the same attention to detail and craft in guest work that he does on his own acclaimed releases. Kid Tsunami’s “TwoThousand40,” DJ K.O.’s “Ladder Of Success,” and R.A. The Rugged Man’s “The Dangerous Three” are just three examples, all released in the last few calendars.

Burgeoning artist/producer DJ Rob A teams up with Masta Ace for a song about reinvigorating the music and the culture. “Put To Paper” is put to the test with Ace recalling some vibes that he hopes to keep alive, with a ton of pep in his lyrical step:

#BonusBeat: Do not miss this just-released Crooklyn Dodgers re-edit putting Masta Ace’s 1994 vocals (as well as Buckshot and Special Ed) alongside DJ Premier’s 1995 Crooklyn Dodgers production. Heads always knew they’d sound great together, especially after that Hard To Earn interlude.
