The legendary Masta Ace joins Beneficence on this Weirdo (of Crazeology) produced banger, accompanied by some clean cuts by Total Eclipse of The X-ecutioners. Off the upcoming Ill Adrenaline Records album Concrete Soul dropping Oct. 30th digitally, and in December on CD and wax.
With Masta Ace’s “collaborative project” with DOOM finally available (via Fat Beats and iTunes), Spotify gets the green light to stream the entire shibang. And while some folks were hoping it was a 100% original collab, the final project showcases Ace rocking over 16 cuts selected from DOOM’s Special Herbs instrumentals. Either way, it’s dope and you can take a listen after the jump.
Paul Nice & Slice-of-Spice’s latest release is finally here and can now be ordered via Slice-of-Spice now. This track was originally released in 2000 with a remix that never saw the light of day until now. The cover art was created by legendary graffiti artist EWOKONE (check for the trailer after the jump) and is pressed on red 7″ vinyl (via link above). Regular black vinyl can be copped at the usual suspects including HHV. Limited copies available so get up on it!
Slice-of-Spice Records has been busy as of late, prepping and releasing a grip of exclusive gems from underrated producer Paul Nice. For their latest release, they’ve dusted off a previously unreleased Masta Ace joint produced by Paul sometime in 2001. You may recall the familiar sample as heard on Premo’s remix to Kanye’s Classic; well Paul actually flipped it first. After finding the original DATs and remastering them, the song is finally ready to see the light of day. The b-side features a Paul Nice remix to showcase that he ain’t going anywhere anytime soon. This is pressed on a 7″ record, with an all black vinyl version sold at the usual suspects (HHV, UGHH, Fat Beats & Dusty Groove), while the limited blue version can only be ordered directly from Slice-of-Spice.
