Masta Ace recently addressed the beef between MC Shan and Marley Marl that sprung up over beat-jacking accusations. During the interview Brooklyn Bodega Radio on PNCRadio.fm, the Juice Crew member said that he was disappointed to see the pair trading barbs over a song recorded decades ago.
“It’s a little sad, man. To kind of think about the history of them. They both kind of came up together. To see kind of — after 30 years or something — dwindle down to taking shots at each other on the internet, I thought it was pretty bad. Pretty weak,” he said.
He also touched on the upcoming Juice Crew reunion tour in Europe, and that Kool G Rap is the sole member who isn’t on board. “We have a tour allegedly coming up in April. We’re going to Europe. All of us. Everybody. The whole Juice Crew. The only one up in the air still is G Rap. G Rap is still a little up in the air. We’re all supposed to be getting on a plane and riding in buses and vans together. I had meetings trying to get a camera crew or a couple of camera crews to travel with us. The reason why it hasn’t happened yet is because the people that are organizing the tour don’t have their stuff together.”
