Since beginning in mid 80's, D.J. Ace activist, artist, and educator, had mentored up and coming artists throughout the Bed-Stuy community, beginning with the rap/breakdance group M.C. Express; next, becoming a co-founder of A.R.A.S. Record label, where he has several recordings under the label. He has performed throughout the country, in the field of rap, hip hop, gospel, and jazz music, working with artists including Wu-Tang Clan, DJ Red Alert, Positive K, Doug Harris, Randy Weston, Jeff King, Roland Alexander, Bob Cunningham, James Spaulding, Young Keith, and the Power Posse. Most notably, he’s one of the original D.Js who organized club “Soul Powers” in 1989, hosting underground parties, featuring local hip hop artists at monthly events, among those including Notorious B.I.G., Vybe Tribe, Much Finesse, and a host of others. 

His additional commitment to the youth includes spending time speaking, and working with youth on developing youth leadership skills, speaking at public youth events, planning youth programs for recreational purposes, and consultant to young artists, serving as a co-founder of the Educated Voices of Hip Hop, Inc.

After returning to the hip hop scene in 2012 from a long absence, D.J. Ace celebrated the release of his full CD, "Back To The Hip Hop", a 13-track combination of previous material including songs, "Non-Stop Groove" and "You Can't Get Wit' This" that were also pre-released on the introduction EP, "Make The First Move". From hip-hop artist to entrepreneur, D.J. Ace is currently in the process of completing two books, most recently, working on “Hip Hop History” (Volume 2 – The Brooklyn Bridge), where he shares his photographs, experiences, and thoughts with stories and history about his work in the hip-hop scene. As follow-up from “PUSH – Hip Hop History” (Volume 1), Ace discusses his rap/D.J. career from the late 80’s to the mid 90’s, his current hip hop involvement, and current state of today’s music industry. 

Much Finesse consists of numerous artists including a live band. In 2019, DJ Ace and Much Finesse will release their next album, "Make The Next Move"
