Years ago, Eminem once told Masta Ace that his 1993 Slaughtahouse album was a staple for the Detroit emcee in the uncertain years of his career portrayed in 8 Mile. In a strange turn of events, Eminem, now an Oscar-nominated, Grammy Award-winning producer, was able to remix the title track from Masta Ace Incorporated‘s aforementioned album [click to listen].
Released on June 3, Delicious Vinyl Records‘ RMXXOLOGY features classics from the Los Angeles-based Hip Hop independent label remixed by stars from an array of genres. Original tracks from Tone Loc, Young MC and Fatlip are remixed by Peaches, Aaron Lacrate and Debonair Samir [click to read] and Hot Chip. However, many are drawn in by the Eminem re-working.
“It’s an incredible honor that somebody so talented and accomplished in the game would wanna do a remix of my song,” Masta Ace told HipHopDX Wednesday morning, reacting to the work. The two, along with J. Black, appeared together on the rare track “Hellbound,” made early in Eminem‘s career.
