From Masta Ace and Marco Polo’s most recent collaborative album, A Breukelen Story (out on Fat Beats Records), “Get Shot” is old-school hip-hop at its finest, from an artist who’s been dedicated to the genre for 30+ years. Once a part of the Juice Crew (alongside Big Daddy Kane, Roxanne Shanté, Kool G Rap and more), Masta Ace has long insisted on infusing wisdom into his rhymes. Over beats by producer Marco Polo, Masta Ace has always shone, and “Get Shot” is no exception. Plus, the chorus samples Jay-Z’s “All I Need” and complements Ace’s verses well.
