..NAS: "Pay homage, respect..Acknowledge the rep"! Masta Ace, has always been a straight dynamite rapper... I remember my brother sayin from back in the days no one was givin him the props he deserved - so it goes to show that he clearly was ahead of time. Ain't no fair that this time passed already. Legend 
I do agree a bit with TheAbbott. Although I love Son Of Yvonne. Ace still manages to make these beats feel fresh. But it's time to let these beats die. No more new shit over them, they need to be retired.
No doubt that Ace is still the shit! But SHAME on Doom for recycling his shit for years and years. I would prefer decent or even average new beats by literally anyone rather than dope beats that I'm bored to death with. It's an almost ruined album despite Ace is on point.
