Records: Masta Ace - "Jeep Ass" & "Born To Roll" 12"s

Masta Ace is a legend. Dude rapped on the greatest posse cut ever with his verse on "The Symphony", was part of the mother fucking Juice Crew, and may be the most relevant rapper today who had hits in the 80's. There are many more Masta Ace record post coming, especially covering his Take A Look Around album, but this one is all about what in my mind is Ace's biggest solo record. Masta Ace had both New York and Los Angeles banging "Jeep Ass" due to the unforgettable "Born To Roll" remix. This is the definition of extending a song's life through a remix. I think my heart is still with the original and that bassline, but the "Knowledge Me" loop on the remix is undeniable.
