Masta Ace & Marco Polo | A Breukelen Story
According to Daryl McIntosh: “Masta Ace, who hails from one of the most notorious neighborhoods within the borough, Brownsville, has teamed with Toronto native turned Brooklyn transplant Marco Polo for their collaborative concept album A Breukelen Story. The talented tag team effectively gives a fresh spin on the familiar tale of what it means to be a Brooklyn resident.
The LP is a perfect rallying cry for fans of adult contemporary hip-hop, who are interested in seeing a producer who can skillfully score the narration of a veteran emcee speaking on relevant issues with maturity and clarity. The story of Brooklyn has always been interesting to the masses, as it has stood as an example of cultural clashes and simultaneous cohesiveness as one of America’s most tightly condensed melting pots. With A Breukelen Story, Ace and Polo craft the musical equivalent of a screenplay or novel, by sharing their personal stories and memories reflective of life in one of America’s great microcosms.”
