Masta Ace And MF Doom Ma Doom: Son Of Yvonne on 2LP + Download
Following the success of two collaborative releases (EMC The Show and Ace & Edo G Arts & Entertainment), Masta Ace joins forces with the metal faced MF Doom for Ma Doom: Son of Yvonne, a highly personal concept album that celebrates the life and legacy of Ace’s recently departed mother. Like his 2004 landmark Disposable Arts, Son of Yvonne is meticulously constructed with stories, settings, and characters that resonate with flesh and bone humanity.
Interstitial vignettes provide a thematic backbone to the experience, and each track complements and completes the previous to form a narrative whole: a sometimes visceral, sometimes nostalgic slice of Ace’s young life in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Entirely underscored by MF Doom’s iconic Special Herbs instrumentals, Son of Yvonne features the Juice Crew general Big Daddy Kane, new comers Pav Bundy (The Bundies), Reggie B and even MF Doom on the mic.
It’s Masta Ace’s no frills flow, however, that looms largest above the dusty samples and digger loops that define Doom’s production. Ace’s photo-realistic rhymes about stick-up kids, spraycan artists and wack emcees add extra gravity to his already celebrated reputation as a storyteller of the highest order!
