Sittin’ on Chrome is the second album by Masta Ace Incorporated, released on May 2, 1995. Masta Ace, a notable figure in the hip-hop scene, leads the group. This album represents a departure from the group’s previous work, blending East Coast hip-hop with West Coast and Southern influences, particularly in its use of bass-heavy, G-funk inspired beats. The result is a sound that is both accessible and innovative, appealing to a broad audience while maintaining the lyrical integrity and storytelling prowess that Masta Ace is known for.

The album is a fusion of East Coast lyricism and the bass-heavy, melodic grooves of G-funk, which was dominant on the West Coast at the time. This hybrid style gives the album a unique place in hip-hop history. The production incorporates smooth, funk-influenced beats, heavy basslines, and melodic hooks, creating a laid-back yet dynamic sound.
