Masta Ace Says New Single “Globetrotter” Will Whet Fans’ Palates For Upcoming Solo Album 

“Globetrotter” is set to feature on the reissue of Ace’s 2004 album, “A Long Hot Summer.”

Masta Ace says that his newly released single “Globetrotter” will whet fans’ palates for his upcoming solo album, The Falling Season.

During a recently published interview withThe Source, the iconic Brownsville emcee spoke about the song — which features London, England-based lyricist AKD (Arise King David) — and its history.

“I had been sitting on that ‘Globetrotter’ beat for over three years, just scheming on a way to use it,” Masta Ace said during the interview. “At first, we were gonna use it on an eMC album, but we never got it done. I had a little 16 on there and that was it. When the idea of adding new music to the reissue of A Long Hot Summer came up, it was a no brainer. I just extended my first verse and wrote a second one. My dude AKD just happened to be visiting the studio that day I was laying it down. I felt another verse/voice was needed and he was like, ‘Yo I might have something.’ I gave him a shot and he did his thing. It’s a classic example of being in the right place at the right time.”

The beat for “Globetrotter” appears to sample Chic’s “Savoir Faire,” a cut off the band’s 1978 album, C’est Chic. That same beat was also sampled by will.i.am on The Game’s The Documentary 2 track, “LA.”

“I’m glad people get to hear some new music from me now,” Masta Ace later said. “This [‘Globetrotter’] should whet their palates for my new solo album. KIC just spent a week out here mixing with us. I have a real emotional attachment to this album as it’s somewhat autobiographical and a glimpse into my life from 1980-1984.”
