[CLASSIC N.Y. HIP HOP] The opportunities are few and far between to see a classic rapper like Masta Ace here in Portland. One of the many influential MCs that emerged from New York in the late ’80s, Masta Ace helped establish the now-distinct sound of early East Coast hip-hop. His most recent release came in 2012, with the MF DOOM-sampling MA_DOOM: Son of Yvonne—a tribute album to his late mother. And while the dude may have been born in 1966, I wouldn’t doubt his ability to own the stage as good as any of these young guns. He's got the rap equivalent of dad strength.
