New video from Masta Ace, “Mathematics” is taken from the legendary emcee’s newest album ‘The Falling Season’ (M3 Records/HHV) and is produced by Kic Beats. Not just a song title, the lyrics drop a lot of mathematical terms as metaphors of the emcee’s philosophy of life and hip hop. Reflective of the content the video directed by Lucrative Sight includes images of Black mathematicians of note throughout history.
The Falling Season (entirely produced by Kic Beats) is a concept piece centered on Masta Ace’s years at Sheepshead Bay High School in the early 80’s. Album guests include Chuck D (Public Enemy), Cormega, A.G, Your Old Droog, Torae, Wordsworth, Stricklin, The World’s Famous Supreme Team and Queen Herawin.
Starting his career with the legendary Juice Crew in the late 80’s, Masta Ace will be celebrating his 50th Birthday Celebration on his home turf of New York City on December 4th. The event will include DJ sets by the mighty Marley Marl, Mister Cee and The Freedom Party DJs Herbert Holler and DJ Cosi. Hosting duties will be handled in part by fellow Juice Crew members Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap & DJ Polo, Roxanne Shante, Craig G and more (info link below).
Later in the month, Ace will also be performing with his Juice Crew cohorts with two reunion shows in the tri-state area. These include BB Kings in NYC for Dec 29th and The Wellmont Theater in Montlclair, NJ for Dec 30th. (info links below).
