Ain't No 1/2 Steppin': Marco Polo & Big Daddy Kane - "Night & Day" (Al B. Sure! Flip)

Canadian producer Marco Polo's currently putting the finishing touches on Newport Authority 2 [mixtape], which 2dopeboyz describes as, ""Legendary emcees on beats by Marco Polo" series with samples that were impossible to clear." He recruited the talents of seasoned lyrical assassin, Big Daddy Kane for "Night & Day." Marco Polo somehow managed to flip a sample pulled from Al B. Sure!'s cheese-tastic New Jack Swing/R&B hit, "Nite and Day" (1988); What ensues next are 3 hard-hitting, age-appropriate verses fit for a 44-year-old rapper. I've transcribed a few of Big Daddy Kane's sharp-tongued bars for the purposes of this here post: "You in your zone, tricking on Patron / with more shots of silver than a werewolf... Shit, baby girl, you said you don't feel appealing. Them breasts ain't looking pirky no more / Them dudes ain't acting thirsty no more." Newport Authority 2 is set to feature Rakim, Artifacts, Das EFX, Torae, Ruste Juxx, Lil Fame (M.O.P.), and should be released very soon! Marco Polo recruited friends-musicians Talib Kweli, DJ Premier, Posdnuos (De La Soul), Styles P, and Inspectah Deck for Port Authority 2. New York-based imprint, Soulspazm Records plans to release the follow-up to Polo's similarly-titled 2007 album sometime this upcoming spring.
