The second video from Masta Ace's MA_DOOM: Son of Yvonne features classic video clips from his illustrious career. In the song Ace lists the many reasons he got involved in Hip Hop and the music business. He expresses in the first verse all the reasons why he DID IT; some of his motivations and influences. As the listener starts to get the idea that Ace is summing up his career, the 2nd verse lists the reasons he is STILL doing it. He shouts out some of the local New York teams, the tri-state area, his family and the veterans who "paved the way" for him. MF DOOM's production compliments Ace's flow and delivery well and this certified Hip Hop banger.
Having recently toured through Europe in support of their latest self-produced album HARK, the "The Ghastly Duo" have kept their look more casual in recent videos, demonstrating their lyrical skill and engaging personalities. As in the video for the song "Barbiturates," this visual places group members Matter ov Fact and EP in relatable surroundings that allow their musical talents to shine through.
Over the past months, Chicago, with the dominance of its Drill scene and the emergence of artists like Chance The Rapper and the recently disbanded Kids These Days, has proven to be one of the most talented, diverse hotbeds for hip-hop music. Jahzel, who hails from the north side of the city, fits snuggly in the middle of these two scenes, delivering music that balances soulfully tangible songwriting with trunk-rattling production. That sounds is on display throughout Jahzel's forthcoming album, In God's Image, which will be released on July 2nd, and which Jahzel announced earlier this month accompanied by the release of a video for the album's title track. Today DJ Booth is premiering the latest single from the project, "Chapters."
