Underground9 Overview:
This is the debut album by Canadian Hip Hop producer Marco Polo.
What you should know first is that Marco Polo doesn't rap, instead he managed to get some of the biggest names in Hip Hop's underground scene on this album and most do an outstanding job on the rich Polo beats.
What you probably have already heard is the single "Nostalgia" that features legend Masta Ace, the track has a beautiful sample, Ace doesn't disappoint and his verses stand out greatly, i was pleased to see Ace back, the video was a nice surprise as well.
Overall my personal favorite is "Marquee", the incredible beat is made of an abstract sample, the catchy sound is richened by O.C.'s slow rapping that display a long mastered delivery.
Copywrite manages to stand up to the other most successful artists on "Get Busy", a great flow that impressed me, the strings in the background perfectly blend with Copywrite's voice.
What really disappointed me is how some high profile artists came out with poor lyrics, Buckshot greatly disappoints in "Go Around", while some beats like "Low Budget Allstars" are poor and stripped down.
Every release has ups and downs, you will find some songs on Port Authority incredible, while other ones will make your listen less enjoyable, a lot of people consider this the best release of 2007, it's definitely a great album worth checking out.
