LA underground legend, Aceyalone, has constantly reinvented himself with each release. His classic debut, All Balls Don’t Bounce found him rhyming over jazz breaks in the early 90′s, while it’s follow-up, A Book Of Human Language took him to the depths of the concept album underground.

Here’s something Aceyalone and RJD2 did for EA’s The Sims 3 soundtrack. Dun Fact: Back when Acey and RJ were recording their first LP together, the name of the group was going to be ACD2, but RJ did not want to use the name because of his dislike of the “mash-up” fad. Check it out [cont.]

The voice belonged to Aceyalone, and with All Balls Don’t Bounce, he ventured on his first solo mission, with a ridiculous [cont.]
Working as a “hold-us-over” project, Aceyalone and producer Elusive deliver the better late than never Hip-Hop And The World We Live In, a weekend experiment recorded somewhere around 2000-2001, now surfacing as an “indy shop only” gem for the fans. Heads first got a taste of this release on the 12-inch single “Bigger They Come”, which [cont.]
All Wyclef jokes aside, as far as Aceyalone’s eclecticism is concerned, there are indeed too sides to his book, whether it be one of simple mic-checking or a deeper volume of human language. Accepted Electic is Acey’s third release, combining the best of both worlds - the off-the-ball bouncing of his debut, as well as the dark [cont.]
