“If it wasn’t for a Mic Check you wouldn’t have a check at all” just as relevant today as 1995. Aceyalone broke out from The Freestyle Fellowship to drop his solo debut album All Balls Don’t Bounce in 1995 and it stands as one of the most original and under appreciated works in Hip-Hopdom. Then The Book of Human Language came out a couple years later and everything I thought about Hip-Hop music changed.
Freestyle Fellowship’s Self Jupiter & producer Bionik will be dropping an EP this summer. To keep the fans appetite quenched, they drop “Don’t Say Nathan”, a bass heavy deep track. Self Jupiter is in vintage form showing what makes him one of the best to call the west coast home. Groomed in the Los Angeles underground, Jupiter has been heavily influential in the hip-hop scene there. From Project Blowed to Good Life to Yoshi’s, there is not a stage that Self Jupiter has not blessed in the city. Bionik has been working with Jupiter’s bandmate, Aceyalone, bringing his own distinct sound to the cityscape.
West Coast veteran, Aceyalone aka Acey The Faceman aka Ace One, takes a stab at the “Draft Day” beat crafting a verbal resume for all the young bucks out there who might not be up on game. Ace has birthed more styles than just about anyone else in the brief history of this thing we call hip-hop music. His ability to ride over any beat in virtually unparalleled in the game.
Freestyle Fellowship/Project Blowed/Good Life veteran P.E.A.C.E. freestyles over a trap beat proving why he is the very embodiment of an EMCEE. If you are not up on P.E.A.C.E. or the FF or PB, then once again Google is your friend and be prepared to dig deep. These cats influenced some of your favorite emcees in the game. And by influenced I mean birthed their styles.
