The Stupendous Adventures of Marco Polo artwork and track listing released

Brooklyn, NYMarco Polo recently did an interview with HipHopDX and released the official cover of his upcoming album The Stupendous Adventures of Marco Polo. The cover art was done by Michael Del Mundo who was also the art director for the Marco Polo/Ruste Juxx album The eXXecution. Click the jump for some interview quotes and the official album track listing.

Here are some quotes from the dope interview Marco Polo did with HipHopDX:

“I definitely think the title Shy came up, The Stupendous Adventures of Marco Polo, inspired Mike to go in fun/comedic direction. I have never worked with an artist whose first drafts have literally become the final cover. Mike is two-for-two with that. The eXXecution, now Stupendous. He fuckin’ gets it, everytime!”

“The cover has many specific images that mean something to me. We got the crazy beaver, which is a Canadian reference. I have my brother from another, Shylow, in the back taking pictures looking like a muthafuckin’ jolly-ass Santa Claus just happy to be along for the ride. Of course, the Duck Down [mascot] dude! All my albums on the dash and flying in the air, DVP sign on the highway which is Toronto all day… The shit is perfect.”

“I don’t really think that deeply about albums. It’s a simple formula for me. I pick the best beats for a certain artists sound or style. Every emcee has a specialty. Torae and [Ruste] Juxx both have that aggression that complements my newer style of production perfectly. Shylow and I always pick what beats should go to what artist as soon as it’s made. A bangin’ beat and a great artist doesn’t automically equal a classic song. [It] has to make sense.”
