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.
This attention provided the stepping stone for what is perhaps his proudest achievement so far: Project Blowed. Back in LA, hot on the heels of successful bands such as Freestyle Fellowship, Pharcyde or Jurassic 5, a new generation was coming to maturity. With the help of fellow A-Team member Abstract Rude, Aceyalone helped launch the revolution. In 1994, he moved the legendary open mic nights of the Good Life to a new location: Ben Caldwell's Kaos Network, a community film and arts workshop located in Leimart Park. Project Blowed was born. Still going strong after more than a decade, the party has become a staple of hip hop lyricism, bringing together emcees of all horizons. C.V.E, Ellay Khule, Busdriver, and Pigeon John emulated each other and launched their careers at the Blowed.
