The fifth studio album by rapper Masta Ace, an incredible release and one of my favorite albums of all time.
I'll never forget the first time i heard this record, it was about a year after it's release and for weeks it was the only album i would listen to.
I could consider this a classic, but i think that many people would disagree on that, but a near classic it's definitely the right definition.
The main thing that impressed me while listening to A Long Hot Summer was the street mood and the way all tracks follow a story, which sets as a prequel to Ace's previous album Disposable Arts.
The production is outstanding, very classical and harmonious beats make each song a treat for the ears.
On the street popular "Good Ol' Love" Ace raps about the struggle in the underground rap scene, Ace has been rapping for more than a decade now and he can be considered one of the most underrated artists alive, it has a very nice sample.
My favorite track on the album is "The Ways", a track that differs from the rest of the album, Ace takes a different approach on the track, aggressive lyrics and faster rapping, the main subject is the ways record labels control the rap scene, the beat is very simple and lets you focus more on the words.
Another standout song is "Revelations", a beautiful song where Ace expresses his emotional state, a track full of concern, anger and disappointment.
One of the best releases in the past years and a very recommended one.
