Masta Ace x MF DOOM – “Slow Down” | New Music


It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from either Masta Ace or MF DOOM, but both are back with a goodie that makes up for the months of absence. Entitled MA DOOM: Son of Yvonne, the Brooklyn-bred lyricist Ace will be bringing forth a new album for the masses this Summer that will see him tackle strictly DOOM production, and has offered up “Slow Down” as the first sample of this hip-hop epic.

It may be coming up to three years since we’ve been able to hold new Masta Ace product in our hands (the last being his collaborative album with Edo G, Arts & Entertainment, in ’09), but his penchant for storytelling hasn’t diminished one bit in this gap, maintaining his lyrical aptness from records like A Long Hot Summer (speaking of which, “Slow Down” sounds just the soundtrack to a long hot Summer).

Give it a listen below and look out for the eMC emcee to hit UK shores next month with dates in Bristol, Manchester, Derby, Edinburgh and London. Visit mastaace.com/events for more info.
