I've been busy for the last few days, but now I'm back and updating again, beginning with Marco Polo's "Newport Authority 2" for anyone who might've missed this gem. Released for free, the project which is put together by Shylow and Marco serves as the warm-up dish for this summer's official full-length "PA2: Director's Cut". This does not mean that it's light on heavy hitting material, exactly the opposite in fact as we are treated to nothinng but new material from the beat maestro who have invited big names like Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Lil' Fame, Das EFX, Tragedy, The Artifacts, MidaZ and many more. Check it out for free, and if you like it as much as me you'll be pleased to know that it will appear on wax via Fat Beats label later this year.. Enjoy!
