Introducing a T-shirt in collaboration with NY’s HIP HOP royalty and one of the best lyricists “Master Ace". Let me tell you a little bit about this amazing artist so that you’ll get an understanding of how important this collaboration is to me.

He’s one of the most amazing HIP-HOP musicians and I’ve been an avid listener for 32 years now. Yep! I am a huge fan of his, not even going to lie. His music inspires me a lot, his wordplay, the message he passes, his internal rhyme, storytelling and his beat selection is on a whole new level of its own. 

Master Ace’s music has evolved with the times in the 33 years of his career, gaining him new fans with every album he releases. He has a lot of hit songs and you can’t just brand him with the term “old school” or "legend" alone. There are times we don’t even remember that he was an integral part of a very popular HIP HOP group called Juice Crew in the late 1980s.

He has 12 albums at the moment, including the album "Take a Look Around" which was debuted in 1990.

Although we did not see much of him after his 1995 hit album " Sittin' On Chrome." During this period, Gangster rap like the East coast Hip-Hop group N.W.A became popular in the HIP HOP world.

During some of his interviews, he explained that the thought of retiring from rap had crossed his mind due to the use of Rap Music in quoting money, drugs, violence and sex.

Nevertheless, he released "Disposable Art" in 2001, followed by the album "A Long Hot Summer" in 2004 with his style still intact.

These two albums were ranked so high to the extent that they were sold for over $200 until the reissue was released. He was making the props in the Hip-Hop underground scene all over the world rock solid again.

In 2000, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), but he did not make it known to the public until 2013. This came as a surprise to his fans.

"Pharoahe Monch" were featured in the album "The Fight Song" which was released in 2018, the song personified the MS itself and and was composed by "Marco Polo”. It was described as the most "Amazing rap song ever".

This "Master Ace" collaboration T-shirt was art-directed and approved by Master Ace himself. The idea for the graphic designs came from the artworks done in the albums "Disposable Art" and "A Long Hot Summer".

These T-shirts are limited edition. Available July 7th 7:00 AM 2021.
