MASTA ACE & MARCO POLO /USA/
When Masta Ace & Marco Polo released their first single from their album The Breukelen Story, an ode to their Brooklyn neighborhood, and asked Smif N Wessun to feature on the track, they shut it down. The past. The message. Nostalgia. The present. Crooklyn Dodgers. D&D Allstars. Those four minutes managed to tie it all together. Experienced veterans in their best form. Masta Polo is a duo that you’ve been meeting for years. Ace cosigned Marco at the beginning of his career and in return, Marco gave a new life to Ace’s rhymes. After couple of singles, there goes a whole album. One of the best of 2018. Period.
