X-Force ended because so many fans were pissed that their black op X-Men mag had been turned into its exact opposite: A brightly colored team that was in the spotlight, public, and all about making money off being heroes.

A fresh new voice from Maryland, Ace Cosgrove has youth on his side. He’s starting out with a crisp delivery, terrific beats (by Black Diamond, FredP, Khamsin, I.V., Merce, Royal, Stolbowsky and Thomas Foolery), and wild-and-crazy ideas. His new mixtape is 100% new material–no reproduced singles here–and 100% original.
You can download the whole thing free on Soundcloud, and it gets my highest recommendation.
