PREMIERE: Masta Ace ft. AKD “Globetrotter”

Master Ace defines longevity in the game. This veteran Brooklyn emcee is the king of the concept album, and 2004’s A Long Hot Summer was no exception. Ace’s fifth LP was marked by stellar production from the likes of 9th Wonder, Marco Polo, Khrysis, and more.

A Long Hot Summer was recently reissued on CD by Dutch Hip-Hop label Below System Records and it includes two brand new bonus cuts! Today, we give you a taste of one of those two tracks, the laidback travellers anthem “Globetrotter.” To emphasize the theme, Ace has English b-boy AKD spit the second verse.
