This album takes the definition of modern hip hop to the next level. I've never thought that Masta Ace would be one of my favourite artists. But since he came with EMC to Lodz (Poland) in 2008 on Outline Coulour Festival, I've made up my mind. All the songs were tremendous, mostly from this album and EMC - The show.
As for A long hot summer album - this is a complete new level of hip hop. Tracks like Good ol love, Beautiful, Bklyn Masala, Oh my god are the best in all ways. Lirycally and musically this album beats all the albums released in 2004. This one is a classic in my collection, so if you're wondering if it's worth to have it - trust me, it's really worth

This was the first Masta Ace album I had ever listened to...and it had me searching for his entire catalogue! One of 2004's hottest HipHop releases. Between "Da Grind", "Brooklyn Masala", "Revelations", "The Ways" and the 9th Wonder produced "Good Ol' Love", can't decide which track takes the top spot. But it doesn't really matter...coz this is one of the best albums packed with lyrics of the highest standards and excellent beat production. Whilst the skits tell a story...the tracks are strategically placed to stay in stride with the storyline. The end-product is a well-rounded album that defines the direction HipHop should be taking.
