I heard a few cuts on Hot 97 during future flavas ( Pete Rock and Marely Marl's show ).
Ace is dope as ever. Big ups to Mr.Cee for doing that whole thing for Ace.

Master Ace is back...I'm feeling this record...I'm especially feeling the cut he has with Rah Digga...She always puts it down..I'm not sure if he'll gain mainstream status with this record, but underground heads will definitely feel this one...He has a kat name Big Strict on a cut with Young Zee and song showcases lyrical skillz...Ace is holding it down...Peace

i'm gonna hold my judgment on the ace's rhymes although he kill high n mighty and boogaman on the track "acknowlege" But the whole premise of him leaving the bin and going to school is clever and funny , peep his roomates freesyle("i'm more funky then a 4 year old yoga mat" ha,ha). but the tracks are very well produce, i am loving the samples from "don't understand" and "hold U" w/jean grae. this album is a 3.5 out of 5.

i'd say 4.5 outta 5. This album is very well made. "Acknowledge", "Hold U", and "Dear Diary" are my favorite tracks. Masta Ace has always been one of my favorites and he continues rockin'.

Overall 4,5/5

This album is amazing and it has aged quite well. I wouldn't be surprised if I would rate this as a classic in a few years. The concept works (this album is the ONLY reason Paul Barman is still alive) and the beats and lyrics are dope as hell. It's a shame that Ace isn't going to release another album because this and "A Long Hot Summer" are both very very dope.

He's done releasing albums???? WTF?

Disposable Arts is probably my favorite Masta Ace album. Paul B is hillarious. I love the concept as well. The best track on there is "Don't Understand". I used to love to drive to this.

He said he'll still do a verse on other peoples records but he'll focuse on his label instead (M3). As far as I know there are no artists signed so he'll probably change his mind...

albums with this many tracks (and skits) usually lose thier flow and get a load of filler thrown in.


this doesnt. 4.25/5
