Accepted Eclectic is the third solo album by Los Angeles rapper Aceyalone, released in March 2001. This time around, production duties were handled by seven different producers, whereas Aceyalone's previous album A Book of Human Language was produced entirely by Mumbles. The album was executive produced by Aceyalone himself. Three singles were released from the album – "Rappers Rappers Rappers", "Accepted Eclectic" (with "B-Boy Real McCoy" as the b-side) and "Microphones".

"I Got to Have It Too" is a remake of "I Got to Have It" by Ed O.G. & Da Bulldogs.

In 2010, the album was reissued by Decon Records.[1]

Source Rating
allmusic 4.5/5 stars [2]
rapreviews.com 9/10 stars [3]
  • allmusic - "A strikingly consistent album that's packed with imaginative, smooth-flowing rhymes, and a simple joy in creating them."
  • RapReviews.com - "Aceyalone has been accused of being inaccessible by the masses due to beats which emphasize his flow but don't enhance the head-nod. There's no truth to that argument on this release . . . If you appreciate cutting edge rap music which resonates with personal soul and not just more tired cliches about being hard or making money, there's absolutely no reason you shouldn't own this album." Music Vibes: 9 of 10, Lyric Vibes: 9 of 10, TOTAL Vibes: 9 of 10
