Video: Masta Ace - "I Did It"

Though he may not get much radio play, Masta Ace has long held a spot in hip-hop's heart for his honest lyrics and concept albums, often building on album length stories of dramatic Brooklyn-centric characters. Last year, MA released an entire album over old MF Doom instrumentals and for nayone that didn't hear them the first time, the album came off as fresh and new for both artists. Not done in the typical "Mc spits over popular instrumentals" style of mixtapes, MA put out the project as an official album and breathed new life into some slept-on tracks by raps favorite masked man.

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. Here's hoping for more.
