You’re late if you haven’t listened to Masta Ace and Marco Polo’s excellent A Breukelen Story album. Photos, flyers and album covers make up the video that gives you a history lesson for the emcee and producer.
The best kept secret in hip hop is that Masta Ace never fails when it comes to album releases. His latest effort with Marco Polo behind the board is no exception. A Breukelen Story is 19 tracks of dopeness that features the likes of Styles P, Smif-N-Wessun, Elzhi, Pharoahe Monch and others assisting. The album is available to be streamed in its entirety and you should do so now.
Masta Ace — who was inexplicably called a “one hit wonder” by The Root — connects with Smif N Wessun as the trio vibe out over Marco Polo production on “Breukelen.” This joint is from Ace and Polo’s forthcoming joint album A Breukelen Story dropping on November 9th.
DJ Tomo and Masta Ace join forces for a re-imagining of the legendary Goblin’s Theme from the movie Profondo Rosso.

The visuals in the video reflect this with graffiti strewn train platforms, soot-stained brick buildings and other visuals from the dawn of hip-hop.
