This guy has a pretty comprehensive discography, including two albums with his group Masta Ace Incorporated[17] which are amazing. I'm only gonna pull some stuff from his solo albums but I highly suggest checking out the group albums

I have a day job and dinner to make!

Good to see some Masta Ace appreciation, I love your taste Tunaman. Honestly can't believe he isn't mentioned more when it comes to who the greats of hip/hop are, he seems to be one of the forgotten MC's - A Long Hot Summer is incredible.

[–]COmusashi 3 points4 points ago

That album changed my life. August 2004 was a crucial time and that shit legitimately did not leave the deck for probably 5 weeks. Even the skits were on point. Front to back not a bad track on there and the production was unreal.

A Long Hot Summer is one of the few albums that in my opinion are close to perfection. Such an amazing piece of music.

Tuna you should create a backlog of these posts if you're gonna keep doing this. Would be great to have a place to read about all the artists you write about.

[–]2naFied[S] 5 points6 points ago

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll add that in the top.

PLEASE! This will help those of us who are behind, and want to listen to only the most approved artists.

[–]The_DERG 2 points3 points ago

Thank you so much for making these posts, they're incredibly well done.

WARNING: Be aware that if you listen to Flava In Ya Ear it will be stuck in your head for the next 36-72 hours.

Also, I'd just like to quickly include my favorite track from Disposable Arts, Take A Walk. The beat on this song is, as they say, heavy.

[–]ChillinWitAFatty 2 points3 points ago

Love these posts. For those who don't know, Easy Mo Bee also did a lot of production on Ready to Die, including one of my favorite Big songs: Machine Gun Funk.

WHAAAAAATS LOOVE GOT TO DO - when im rippin on through your whole crew!

I know this is a throwback day but just in case people haven't kept up with MA (most people don't) he had a feature on an RA the rugged man track this year with brother ali called The Dangerous 3 and last year he released a project with MF DOOM where he used beats from special herbs and it's called MA DOOM: Son of Yvonne

[–]CaptScarbridge 2 points3 points ago

Keepin' it real. These throwbacks are a great way to expose people to the unsung legends of hip hop.

[–]iamsodaft 1 point2 points ago

I love those fast drums on the track by GZA/Genius. That beat is sick!

EDIT: RIP Heavy D. Dude has such a smooth voice.

EDIT 2: It does not get much better than that "Likwidation" album cover.

Tuna I love you but you're killing me here. Tunaback Tuesday, 2na Tuesday, whatever, just do these same amazing posts on Tuesday. Really though these are amazing thank you.

[–]2naFied[S] 2 points3 points ago

Can't do em on tuesdays, cuz that's not the throwback day!

Thanks though.

[–]CannaSwiss 1 point2 points ago

This will forever bother me as I continue to enjoy these posts.

[–]RipInTheUniverse 1 point2 points ago

Some Masta Ace appreciation! Well deserved. Love A Long Hot Summer. Only appropriate this week with Em-jerk-2013 in full effect.

[–]pdizzz 0 points1 point ago

Easy also produced Everything Remains Raw, which is arguably one of my favorite Busta songs. This guy is glorious, and did some of the best production of all time back in the day.

[–]ninjasenses 0 points1 point ago

Good work once again man, keep it up

[–]bowlforthedude 0 points1 point ago

It deserves a mention that Easy Moe was producing Miles Davis' debut hip-hop album before he died. The songs that exist are definitely worth checking out

[–]diabetess 0 points1 point ago

I've been trying to get into some older artist lately so these are great. Really appreciate it

Acknowledge is the shit too. The Gangstarr sample is so nice.

Appreciated as always Tuna. I'd admit my producer knowledge is lacking so I've been diggin these threads

[–]bo0b 0 points1 point ago

I love Long, Hot Summer and Disposable Arts, such cohesive albums, just so good in general.

Easy Mo Bee worked with 2Pac heavily as well.
