Days before reuniting with his Juice Crew comrades near the end of the year, rap veteran Masta Ace is letting fans see a show from his perspective.

Masta Ace recently released a deluxe edition his 2004 album Long Hot Summer with two new bonus tracksTo celebrate the occasion he has released a new music video for "Good Ol' Love," a beloved highlight from the album produced by 9th Wonder.

Masta Ace recorded the video on a Go Pro camera, and shows life from Masta Ace's first-person perspective on tour. It shows the thrill of performing on stage with fans cheering you on, but also shows the grunt work like preparing merchandise, living on the road, and exercising to stay in top performance shape. After all the video footage, the video ends with photos of Ace posing with his groupmates and fans from around the world.

The video comes days after Ace celebrated his 50th birthday. At his celebration, video footage of Eminem rapping Ace's verse on the Juice Crew's timeless 1988 posse cut "The Symphony" was shown from a projector.

Ace will also wrap up his European tour with two huge Juice Crew reunion concerts: one in New York City on Thursday, Dec. 29, and the second on Friday, Dec. 30.

"Good Ol' Love" originally had Ace reflecting on his years in the game and how he doesn't get the proper respect. But with these two videos, it looks like Ace is getting some of the kudos he deserves.

Purchase the rereleased version of Long Hot Summer on UGHH, HHV.DE, or Below System Records.
