1. WATCH: Masta Ace — Fake "Rare and Real" Promo.


    Here is a quick rap fix, Masta Ace doing a spot for the Fake clothing brand in Montreal, Canada. While the world awaits the release of Ace's collab with M.F. Doom, MA_Doom's Son of Yvonne , the Masta takes a moment to spit some bars from the album, answering all the people who ask the rhyme veteran whose pro career has spanned 24-years why he still does it.

    Masta Ace raps: "I do it 'cause I could / I do it 'cause I'm good / I do it for the birds, I do it for the 'hood / I do it all day, I do it in the night / And when I do do it you know I do it right / I do it for the flight so I can see the world / I do it for my wife and my little girl / Superhero dad can save the day/ I do it for the cats that paved the way / I do it for the vets, I do it for the Jets / I do it for the Yanks, I do it for the Mets / I do it for the Knicks, I do it for the kicks / Then I cross the bridge and do it for the Bricks/ Then I drive South and do it up for Philly / I know what dudes do, but do they do it really? / Let's not be silly this foolishness is dumb/ I did it, still do it, and this is how it's done/ One."

    Peep the clip after the jump...

      "I do it for the vets" - he most certainly does, he ain't never fell off. He is a blueprint for how great emcees should "age" and not all that many can really claim consistent quality from the birth of his/her career to now. Plus a live show where cats can actually say, "that was live!" after attending.

      Edo.G, Scarface, Chuck D., Posdnuos, Large Professor, Pharoahe Monch...there are more, but the list is not all that long.

      Have to agree with you, man. It's not an easy thing to do, but he has done it, along with the others you mentioned.

      Still one of the best to do it. Very few can keep the same vitality that they once did. Ace is one of em.
