LET THE RECORD SHOW – MASTA ACE & MARCO POLO [VIDEO]

Let the Record Show, the crate-dug interview series in which artists discuss their favorite songs of all time as the tracks spin on vinyl, continues its third season today, as hosts Mike Pizzo and Warren Peace speak with legendary Brooklyn emcee Masta Ace and producer Marco Polo.

Following the release of his eighth album, A Breukelen Story – a collaborative LP with Toronto bred, BK-based producer Marco Polo – Masta Ace looks back on a career that spans thirty years, as the duo selects a list of vinyl cuts that shaped their individual tastes over the years. Their selections range from endlessly sampled breaks from Bob James and Donald Byrd to iron clad hip-hop classics from Run-DMC, Afrika Bambaataa and Gang Starr.

Masta Ace and Marco Polo’s appearance on Let the Record Show marks the 21st episode in the series and the sixth episode released this year, following each Georgia Anne Muldrow, Lil Jon, Kurupt, Just Blaze, and Flosstradamus. Season 3 of Let the Record Show will continue in the coming weeks with Mayer Hawthorne, Cut Chemist, and more.
