Every now and then I like to shine a light and some of our friends and affiliates.
I’ve been working with Tha Pyro a.k.a. Ace for about two years now. He’s a very intelligent emcee from Bridgeport, Connecticut steeped in the east coast traditions of razor sharp flows and punchline rhymes. In that time since we first linked up he’s released two mixtapes, I Know I’m A Genius Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. He’s currently prepping a third, 2 Genius 4 Hip-Hop. All this genius talk refers to Ace’s crew, Genius E.N.T., a movement consisting of emcees Minister Po, Kimmy K, and Brave Rage. Ace’s goal as a rapper is to provide a blend of commercial and intellectual rap, breaking longstanding dichotomies between what sells records and what makes listeners think–as the Genius E.N.T. mission statement puts it: “fighting ignorance one ear at a time.”
