Hip-hop stalwart Aceyalone drops the lean, mean 'Ring Ding'

Posted on

Over the past 25 years, Los Angeles MC and Freestyle Fellowship member Aceyalone has remained immune to passing fads and established himself as a bedrock of classic rap values in a rapidly shifting genre. (Although he’s not too fusty to jump on Tove Lo’s “Habits (Stay High).”)

His latest album, Action (dropping April 7), finds him teaming up yet again with longtime collaborator Bionik for a hard-hitting 14 tracks, including “Ring Ding,” which pairs a menacingly funky beat with a long list of reasons why Aceyalone isn’t too impressed with today’s rappers.
