A&E (Masta Ace & EDO. G) - Little Young

Posted 7 years ago
Arts & Entertainment

Though plenty of hip-hop vets have stepped up to the mic to denounce the current state of the genre, most have limited their criticisms to metaphors and generalities—until now.  Masta Ace and EDO. G, two Northeastern greats who recently joined forces as A&E, aren’t afraid to name (lots of) names, and on this newly-leaked track of their forthcoming debut LP they do just that; over M-Phazes’ piano-driven boardwork, the seasoned emcees tell all the “Little Young”  rappers currently dominating the mainstream to get off hip-hop’s neatly-manicured lawn, or else!  Older heads will undoubtedly appreciate the message the collaborators bring to this track, but even a young whippersnapper like myself can’t deny Ace and EDO’s sharp-as-ever skills on the mic (and they do have a point about the surplus of unimaginative stage names).  Whether you’ve been around since hip-hop’s's inception or you’re simply old at heart, you won’t want to miss the time-tested lyrical fire these two will bring on their Arts & Entertainment LP, due out October 6th.
