Marco Polo – Strange Brew ft. Gangrene (Oh No & Alchemist) [Audio]

Brooklyn, NY – Don’t miss our review of the new Marco Polo album, PA2: The Director’s Cut. One of the many bangers on the project is “Strange Brew” featuring West coast duo Gangrene (Oh No & Alchemist) with cuts by DJ Romes. The song premiered earlier today on AllHipHop. You can purchase PA2 on iTunes.

“Hope y’all dig it.” – Marco Polo

The next installment in a series of drops from his brand new album PA2: The Director’s Cut, Marco Polo keeps on with his love of the west, engaging 3 more of Cali’s finest, who take it to a dark place on “Strange Brew”. With hard hitting lyrics from the gutter water duo, Oh No and Alchemist, also know as Gangrene, and aggressive cuts massacred by the one and only DJ Romes (one third of the legendary Lootpack), this song delivers the ruggedness that you’ve have come to expect from Marco Polo collaborations. Although obviously one of his favorite styles of rap to explore in the lab, this song is just one of the many flavors that Marco presents on his 19 track opus, PA2.
