I can’t remember where I got this from, I’m thinking on the Bust The Facts boars, but I could be wrong. Regardless, I thought it might be more rare than it actually is. When I started looking for info on this I realized it’s been on quite a few sites. I guess I’m slippin’ in my old age. Not sure if they are releasing this in a proper format. I only saw one site (a forum) selling it for $30 bucks.
I was a big 304 fan back in the day (not as big as WYDU contributor Brian) and consider 2nd II None’s debut album near classic. I’ve only listened to this only a couple times, and nothing really jumped out at me, but I’m going to tive it a few more listens before I write it off.

I probably should save this joint, since I’m going to have a cut from this “mixtape” appear on my own “Obscure Joints” that is going to follow up the Philaflava series. I couldn’t not share this though as I’ve been a big fan of Ace Lover since first hearing one of his singles on Underground Hip Hop.com back in the day. He is mad witty, with a wicked sense of humor and the true essence of what I picture a New York MC to be. He was a winner at the Braggin’ Writes MC battles and put an album as 2 For 5 with Oktober that is HEAVILY slept on.
This is just a collection of some of his earlier material. Some originally his, some just stuff he appeared on. I had heard about this a long time ago, but only just recently bumped into it (and no, not on the internet), so I was happy to see it. I haven’t heard anything from Ace Lover in awhile, but he has a myspace which makes it sound like he has something up his sleeve in the near future.
