Despite the fact this was a track originally intended for release in 2009 for his album “Seventh Seal”, Rakim sounds better than most of the rappers you hear on the radio today still on the track“What’s Wrong”. This track was kept under wraps due to clearance issues and was nixed from the retail release of the project. Rakim gave the track back to producer Marco and he decided to use it for his forthcoming free-LP “Newport Authority 2” as Marco states
“I’ve recorded so much quality material over the last few years and I really want to share it all. It couldn’t all possibly fit on “Port Authority 2”; hence “Newport Authority 2” came to be.”
“Newport Authority 2” will feature appearances from Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Artifacts, Das Efx, Lil Fame (M.O.P.), Torae & Ruste Juxx all rocking over Marco’s production. Listen and download the track below.
