Rappers Edo G and Masta Ace will put their lyrical skills to the test with a joint project that is sure to bring listener’s back to the “golden age” of Hip Hop. Going under the alias A&E, the two east coast veteran emcees will release Arts & Entertainment on October 6.
Edo G and Masta Ace have collaborated in recent years, such as on Ace’s 2004 album A Long Hot Summer [click to read], and likewise on Edo’s album My Own Worst Enemy.
Previously working with his own group eMC [click to read] and releasing The Show [click to read] in 2008, this new album all but proves Masta Ace has stepped away from retiring, a notion that some fans were worried about in the past [click to read].
Arts & Entertainment will include features from Large Professor [click to read], Marsha Ambrosious [click to read] and KRS-One [click to read], as well as duo Chester French [click to read], who spoke to DX earlier this year about their collaboration with Ace and Edo [click to read]. The album’s first single, “Little Young,” produced by M-Phazes, has recently been released.
