Bet, one of the projects I couldn’t wait to hear is finally ready for our listening pleasures. Producer Marco Polo connects with acclaimed emcees Big Daddy Kane, Tragedy Khadafi, Lil Fame, The Artifacts, Torae and many more for the mixtape “Newport Authority 2”. Of the mixtape Polo states;
“The Newport Authority 2 album was inspired by politics & industry bullsh*t that prevented this material from being included on 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 mix tape. 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!”
