PaceWon is a New Jersey rapper and producer who rose to fame in the late 90s as one of the prominent and founding members of the rap group Outsidaz. He was first heard on The Fugees platinum album ‘The Score’ and on Redman’s ‘Malpractice’ LP. In 2002, he released his debut album, entitled ‘Won’, followed up by his second LP, ‘Telepathy’, co-produced by himself. After a string of singles, the rise of former crew member Eminem, and a few years of virtual absence, PaceWon managed to find a new producer for his gravelly vocals and one-liners in Mr. Green. They released two collaborative projects, ‘The Only Color That Matters Is Green’ and ‘Only Number That Matters Is Won’ featuring Snoop Dog and Masta Ace, via Raw Poetix Records.
He returns with a new tripped out animation video, “That’s That” featuring Rah Digga, Ren Thomas, & Mad Squablz, directed by Trippe Steff. “The main inspiration of the music video was mainly to reflect how crazy the beat is and make something just as insane and non traditional in a Hip Hop sense” says PaceWon. It is the first visual off the ‘Ghost In The Machine’ EP which is a different and darker themed project mainly produced by Mahdyar with one track by Misfit Soto. “Not many in the US Hip Hop scene know this, but Mahdyar is huge in Iran to where he had to flee for refugee status now living in Paris. This is the first dark conceptual album I have done with no love songs or any specific topics, just straight Hip Hop for the soul” says PaceWon. Check out the video below as well as the EP now on your preferred digital streaming provider via Raw Poetix Records.
