MA_DOOM (Masta Ace & MF Doom) ~ I Did it (Video) (@mastaace)

The second video from Masta Ace’s MA_DOOM: Son of Yvonne features classic video clips from his illustrious career. In the song Ace lists the many reasons he got involved in Hip Hop and the music business. He expresses in the first verse all the reasons why he DID IT; some of his motivations and influences. As the listener starts to get the idea that Ace is summing up his career, the 2nd verse lists the reasons he is STILL doing it. He shouts out some of the local New York teams, the tri-state area, his family and the veterans who “paved the way” for him. MF DOOM’s production compliments Ace’s flow and delivery well and this certified Hip Hop banger.

Ugly Heroes (Apollo Brown, Verbal Kent, Red Pill) ~ Ugly Heroes ((Album))

An Ugly Hero is considered a myth. Growing up, the heroes we saw in cartoons and movies were perfectly chiseled, intelligent, and had senses none of us possess. An UGLY HERO is the everyday blue collar individual that makes the world go 'round. These are the heroes that work hard all day, everyday to help ensure that the lives around them are taken care of, and do it all without recognition. They wear themselves into the ground and sacrifice vanity for family. 

Apollo Brown, Verbal Kent, and Red Pill are UGLY HEROES.
