Masta Ace Says Joe Budden Made Wrong Decision To Battle Hollow Da Don

"There's so much ammunition that Hollow has," Masta Ace says. "There's not much that we know about Hollow."

With the group's latest album set to release tomorrow (it's already available on iTunes), eMC sat down with VladTV to answer questions about the Battle Rap scene at large as well the upcoming Joe Budden and Hollow Da Don match specifically. 

“I have an issue,” Masta Ace said. “I feel like the playing field is not level. Because Joe has so much that Hollow can aim at. He’s so much more known. He’s on reality TV. He’s been on Def Jam. We know his girlfriends. There’s so much ammunition that Hollow has. There’s not much that we know about Hollow other than what cats have already said in battles that Joe’s gonna regurgitate. I think dudes should need to be on the same kind of level of fame to be battling. I don’t think it was a good choice on his part. But I’m curious to see. He’s a good emcee so he’s gonna come with lines.”

During the interview Masta Ace, Wordsworth, and Punchline also addressed Canibus' loss to Dizaster in 2012 and whether or not any of the three would considering battling themselves.

    Realistically how can Hollow win when everybody can predict what he's gonna say about Joe already? We all know what L's Budden have taken over the years, Hollow is gonna be telling old news, not to mention the expectations about him winning being are a lot more pressure than Joe going up there experimenting, so even if he loses he's just gonna make song about and if he wins there's gonna be more recording artists battling.

      If Hollow wins he still goes back to the soup kitchen. Budden loses and dries his tears with Interscope's money. Let's not read to much into this.
