During an interview with Slam Online, Masta Ace explained, "Marley was definitely a mentor, as my first professional producer. My influences in the early days were LL Cool J and Rakim, and even before them, a guy in my neighborhood named Charlie Wop. He used to rap at the neighborhood summer time jams on the basketball court in my projects—the Howard Houses. I used to see Pearl Washington and World B Free out there quite often."
 
He then spoke about how the music industry has changed, adding, "The amount of money artists made in the late ’80s, early ’90s pales in comparison to what began to happen in the late ‘90s and going into to new millennium. Artists began to get record deals where they owned their own masters/publishing and therefore made the lion’s share of long-term profits. The internet and digital age has led to the decline of many labels and record stores."
