“Ace, the frontman of Indian hip-hop crew Mumbai’s Finest, has been a mainstay of the underground scene since day one. Stepping out for a solo effort, Second To None, he demonstrates his skill rapping in Hindi and English over electro-trap beats and heavy bass on the title track—an ode to the single-mindedness that’s got him to where he is today—while the R&B ballad “Don’t You Know” filters dancehall through murky synths. Solo cuts like “Drive Me Crazy” put his flow front and centre, but this born collaborator welcomes all comers, tapping talents like activist rapper Smokey The Ghost and fellow desi rap trailblazer Blaaze” – iTunes India Editorial Team

They also debuted in Bollywood with ‘Yatri Kripaya Dhyaan De’ from Love Per Square Foot. This album is sure to be a milestone in the Indian Rap Scene.
