With his latest full-length, PA2: The Director's Cut, slated for release this July via Soulspazm Records, veteran beatsmith Marco Polo is tiding fans over with the release of free album Newport Authority 2.
Mixed and mastered by Joey Nardone, the set is composed of 13 records which didn't make the former project's tracklist due to "politics [and] industry bullsh*t," among them DJBooth-acclaimed singles "What's Wrong" (featuring Rakim), "Nite & Day" (featuring Big Daddy Kane), "Back to Work" (featuring Artifacts), "Fame for President" (featuring Lil Fame) and "Stand Up (Remix)" (featuring Adrian Younge & the Delfonics). Additional guest appearances include Das EFX, Ruste Juxx and Torae. DJ Shylow provides cuts throughout. Watch for the vinyl version of Newport Authority 2 to drop soon via Fat Beats.
Premiered at 2DopeBoyz.com.
