        Hi FTD! :)

        The problem with hip-hop... shit nothing at all / It's an artform that
        ranges and it changes it evolves / It's not always for the better, but
        be patient with it yall / For our time will come and the wicked will
        On 2007’s “Nostalgia,” a memorable track off Marco Polo’s album, Port
        Authority, chemistry between Polo and guest MC Masta Ace is easily heard
        and felt. What was a quick one-off collab was not only a reminder of
        Masta Ace’s timelessness, but it was also the impetus for a larger, more
        fleshed out concept between the Toronto beatsmith Polo and the legendary
        MC. The pair since formed a duo and the result is a powerfully
        evenhanded project, A Breukelen Story.

        In 2018 we find hip-hop’s storied journeyman, Masta Ace, at the helm of
        another sharp, tightly wrought project. He’s traversed hip-hop’s
        ever-changing landscape for nearly three decades, navigating different
        eras while expanding his already extensive catalogue. From his formative
        work with the legendary Juice Crew, to a bombastically renowned stint
        with Delicious Vinyl, it’s hard to find a more humble master of ceremony
        than Ace—even harder is finding another figure whose work is equally
        embraced on both coasts, East and West, as well as abroad.

        Despite amassing 7 solo albums, 5 collaborative projects and countless
        additional one-offs, Ace is still trying to show and prove, still moving
        the needle forward for himself, his fans, and his career. Says Ace: “My
        goal on A Breukelen Story was to do more lyrical stuff. I’ve done a lot
        of concept songs, and a lot of topical records, but I made a point to
        put a couple straight rhyming joints on here to remind dudes I can still
        do this.”

        “I met Masta Ace for the first time while interning at Cutting Room
        studios in Manhattan,” says Marco Polo, longtime Canadian producer whose
        exploration of samples and boom-bap aesthetics certainly suite his
        moniker. “Ace came in for a session in the studio years and I introduced
        myself and gave him a beat CD.” While Polo was a young intern on the
        rise, he quickly worked the situation to his advantage, eventually
        producing for giants he grew up admiring— Kool G Rap, Large Professor,
        Scarface, Sean Price, Black Thought, Talib Kweli, to name a few.

        Polo is not new to forming quality collabs with others in the art form,
        with notable stints on the aforementioned Port Authority as well as it’s
        follow up, PA2, and others like 2016’s work with young MC, A-F-R-O,
        fittingly titled A-F-R-O Polo. Yet out of Polo’s previous collaborative
        efforts, this one stands out and is a bit more special, according to
        Polo: “Ace does not like to write random songs, its usually conceptual
        and topical,” he says. “But we do have some straight spitting joints on
        A Breukelen Story which is what makes this album possibly the most
        diverse of all of my collaborative albums.”

        The random meeting and a beat CD resultantly birthed A Breukelen Story,
        a collaborative release between the venerable veteran and an incredibly
        detailed and prolific producer. 14 tracks with pronounced guests
        (Pharoahe Monch on “The Fight Song” for example) all strewn together
        through Ace’s signature skits and interludes that frame the music and
        while telling the story of Polo manifesting his vision of being an NY
        transplant via Toronto while pursuing his dream of being a renowned
        record producer. Other guests range from younger MCs like Marlon Craft
        to spry OGs like Lil Fame (of M.O.P.), to Smif ‘n’ Wessun, to Styles P
        (of the Lox) Polo’s pastiche style boom-bap is the drum-driven
        centerpiece that perfectly couches Masta Ace’s thoughtful stanzas and
        vivid storytelling for this effusive Brooklyn narrative.
