Producer Marco Polo has been featured quite a bit on GOF the last few weeks (here and here), and now we have the “Newport Authority 2″ album to hold us over until this summer when his “PA2: The Director’s Cut” full-length is released. With industry politics keeping a slew of tracks off of that “official” release, Polo decided to put them together and offer them up as a free album – and rest assured this is no simple mixtape, but rather a fully realized project that features heavyweight guests Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Tragedy Khadafi, Lil Fame and The Artifacts. He also has some newcomers like First Division, MidaZ and Big Gutta to keep things fresh. Check out the great first track Fame For President below and then head over to Audiomack to listen and download the whole record. If only half of the music for sale out there was nearly as good as this sh*t we might actually be getting somewhere in this hip-hop game. Highly recommended.
