Emc Canadian Tour
(Masta Ace, Wordsworth, Stricklin And Punchline)
with Kids

Great rhymes plus great beats equals great music! This is the formula that any hip-hop artist truly dedicated to their craft should choose to live by. The hip-hop world is constantly looking for a breath of fresh air. Well hip-hop fans need to look no further. Take a deep breath, inhale and become intoxicated by the sounds of the super-group eMC!

Formed in 2007, eMC is comprised of four spectacular lyricists: the Milwaukee born phenom Stricklin, the widely respected NYC duo and “Lyricist Lounge” emcees Punchline & Wordsworth and the legendary Brooklyn-bred, former Juice Crew member Masta Ace.

The Wisconsin native Stricklin made noise in the late 90’s when he was signed to Tommy Boy Records and was featured on several of the labels releases. Punchline & Wordsworth released an EP in 2000 and were both integral in the success of the groundbreaking MTV program “The Lyricist Lounge Show”. Wordsworth would later release a solo LP in 2004 entitled “Mirror Music”. These three talented artists obviously caught the ear of Masta Ace because he went on to feature them all on two of his own albums.

What makes this group so special is that its formation spawned as a result of the request of the fans. Having toured extensively with Ace since 2001, Stricklin, Punchline, and Wordsworth all became very close after realizing how natural their chemistry together was. The fans recognized this chemistry as well and often asked if there was a group album planned in the future. Well in 2008 that question was answered emphatically when the quartet released their critically acclaimed debut album “The Show” on M3/Traffic Entertainment.

“The Show” was an instant classic among hip-hop purists around the world and it’s great reception lead to eMC being established as one of the elite groups within the underground rap realm. After three years of extensive touring from 2006-2008, the group’s members branched off to re-establish their solo careers. Punchline released his powerful debut album “Underground Superstar” with Germany’s own DJ Soul Clap in 2012. The brilliant Wordsworth dropped his second solo effort “The Photo Album” in June of 2012. Masta Ace teamed up with rap veteran Edo G in 2009 to release “Arts & Entertainment” followed by an album released in 2012 dedicated to his late mother entitled “Son of Yvonne” which featured songs exclusively written over MF DOOM beats.
