Marco Polo - Newport Authority 2 [Free LP]
Before his producer album, PA2: The Director’s Cut, drops this July, Marco Polo blesses us with this album that’s too dope to be free. But it is, and I’ll let Marco explain why: “The Newport Authority 2 album was inspired by politics & industry bullsh*t that prevented this material from being included on my upcoming LP PA2: The Director’s Cut. Shylow and I went in and created a separate album to hold people over until PA2 drops in July. Attached with Intro, interludes and fully mixed & mastered by Joe Nardone. With confidence I can say this is not a mixtape. It will also be available on vinyl LP via Fat Beats for the heads that appreciate physical product, because I still do. I’ve included songs I recorded with legends such as Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Tragedy Khadafi, Lil Fame and The Artifacts. But, I’ve also got joints on here with some talented up and comers such as First Division, MidaZ and Big Gutta. Plus the sh*t is free – so enjoy!” Get the full project below, via 2db. And look for PA2 in July via Soulspazm Records (features from Organized Konfusion, Gangrene, Talib Kweli, DJ Premier, Masta Ace, Posdnous, Styles P, Large Pro, Inspectah Deck, Rah Digga, and more).
