Review

The word hip-hop should not be tossed around lightly when talking about the duo of Pace Won & Mr. Green. The Newark tag team of DJ (Mr. Green) and MC (Pace Won) have a profound love for making hardcore hip-hop. The group claims that the likes of Gangstarr and Eric B. & Rakim inspired them to keep it real when fakeness is on the rise. Immaculate lyrics lain down by Pace Won perfectly complement Mr. Green s unique classical style of production. The duo has already created a buzz through their single Children Sing and seemingly more will come if the group makes a strong first push into the hearts of underground hip-hop fans. This awaited push may come in the form of their LP, The Only Color that Matters is Green. The introductory track Four Quarters shows Mr. Green s abilities as a producer by combining gritty violin strings with a simple drum line. Pace Won takes this opportunity to introduce himself to the mic with the hook, White Collar/Blue Collar/I Holla/You Holla/ Let s get together four quarters makes a dolla, explaining that all different people can come together to make music. This kind of substance is found throughout the rest of the album. The next track that happens to be their single Children Sing portrays the come up of the two, explaining that they are finally starting to get things together in their lives through making their music. To contrast this come up story is the song Let A Shot Go. Pace Won goes to the other extent by laying down cold lyrics straight from the streets explaining that he will do anything to get to where he needs to. The next track that relates to this style of a go-getter is the song I Need Money. This track samples the all too familiar line from the Junior Mafia track Get Money to set the tone of a go-getter s story. Pace Won uniquely puts a twist on this explaining how he needs money and the fantasies that would come with this cash. The duo then goes in a different direction with the lighter track She Be So Cold. Light symbols with a harsh but steady piano key hit combine to make a nicely laced track by Mr. Green. Pace Won explains the troubles of a relationship with catchy lines like, And even under/The spell that I was under/I wonder why she always called me from a block number. Each track pieces together to lead up to what I feel was the strongest song on the entire album, Hip Hop. This track seems to be an overview of the entire album in its own sense. Each element of the album from the dubs and ice to the M-I-C is equally explained through the one word that pushes the group to be hardcore, hip-hop. Pace Won explains what hip-hop is to the group through his lyrics while Mr. Green explains through the earthly classical beat. To tie everything together is the final track The Joker which utilizes an unearthly beat along with a whining electric guitar riff. Pace Won makes a joke into punch lines to finish off his lyrical massacre on the rest of the album. Between simplistic yet substance filled lyrics from Pace Won and the classical and gritty tracks by Mr. Green it is hard not to see success in the future of this duo. Only time will tell if the Newark natives can hold up in the game. This LP is more than a push into the game and will only be material for them to ride on into a successful career. Not giving this album a few listens would be a hate crime to real underground hip-hop. --ArtofRhyme.Com

Albums like this is why I fell in love with Hip Hop in the first place. I think of very few albums as classics & this is one of them. Easily this is one of the best Hip Hop albums of the decade. Mr. Green's beats are just flawless and Pacewon's lyrics are hard hitting and make complete sense. The whole album is completely dope. They also have a few videos from the album that are worth checking out. It's a absolute shame that not many people have heard this album. I just hope that Mr.Green and Pacewon continue to work together because it's a great combination. BIG A+ for this album.

This album is very, very dope. A must-have. Classic hip-hop.

The reason this review is four years late is because I just learned about Mr. Green and Pacewon thanks to their new release, "The Only Number That Matters Is Won." The new album isn't as good as this one, but it's still solid.

Thank you Mr. Green and Pacewon for creating this awesome music.

Whether it's Ghostface's forthcoming collab with DOOM, or Jake One's debut (which featured a collaboration between Freeway & Brother Ali), it seems like musicians these days are growing more and more willing to work with people outside of their artistic circle's. Take Pacewon & Mr. Green; even aside from the fact that Pacewon is a tall raspy voiced black man, and Green is a short, soft-spoken white male, these two really don't seem like the type that would get along, much less meet-up and make a rap album together. No matter it's a good thing they did, because together these two talents have the capacity to make some of the dumbest Hip-Hop you'll ever here (in a good way).
Right off the first cut ("Four Quarters") a sample taken from "He Got Game" sets the record straight; "Your black, I'm white, and this is green. When making a business decision, the only color that matters is green." Combined with the song's chorus the message is made crystal clear: green = dope music, and Pacewon & Green have come here to create it.
After "Four Quarters," the duo kicks the album into high gear delivering what can only be described as one of the hottest tracks all year with "Children Sing." Pacewon kills it to be sure, but the real show-stealer here is the ridiculous beat. As the title suggests, the beat consists of a chopped and screwed sample of a singing Sunday school choir. The end result is possibly the best example I've ever seen of simple but effective production.
