Aceyalone first stepped into the limelight in the early 90's as one of the key figures in the legendary Los Angeles group, the Freestyle Fellowship. Over the course of four albums, the Fellowship helped redefine West coast hip hop. Defining albums such as "To Whom It May Concern" or "Innercity Griots" introduced Aceyalone as a thought-provoking, conceptual and outgoing MC. In 1995, Aceyalone launched a successful solo career. With timeless albums such as "All Balls Don't Bounce," "Accepted Ecclectic," and the unique "A Book of Human Language," Acey gained the respect of music fans and critics alike, proving himself to be one of the finest rappers of his time.
March 2006. Decon Media once again contacted Self-Hemployed to provide the props for a Hip Hop video.
Aceyalone, who just released his album Magnificent City together with RJD2 wanted a underground/ internet music video for his track 'Highlights'.
Of course Self-Hemployed jumped on the case. Still even with our friends and connects it's not always easy to find the right spot, at the right time. "We need FULLY flowering buds! We need some chocolate, some different kinds of smokeable weed, seeds and some nice girls along his side. Bongs, rollingpapers, blunts the whole nine yards."
Working in the growroom is always fun. "And you know this man.." There's nothing better then sitting in your room, looking at your babies waving in the wind of your fan. :) Eventhough this room was not to be compared with the room we went to with Ludacris, it was a very nice setup in Amsterdam. We smelled like some serious bud when we was done, that's for sure.
