After a few weeks of leaks, Marco Polo blesses his fans with the release of the second installment of the Newport Authority series, Newport Authority 2. You can download the album here and stream it below. The NYC producer is releasing the project for free. It's a 13-track album that has some big names including Rakim, Big Daddy Kane and Lil Fame of MOP, just to name a few. He tells 2DopeBoyz:

The Newport Authority 2 album was inspired by politics & industry bullsh*t that prevented this material from being included on PA2: The Director’s Cut. Shylow and I went in and created a separate album to hold people over until PA2 drops in July. Attached with Intro, interludes and fully mixed & mastered by Joe Nardone. With confidence I can say this is not a mix tape. It will also be available on vinyl LP via Fat Beats for the heads that appreciate physical product, because I still do. I’ve included songs I recorded with legends such as Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Tragedy Khadafi, Lil Fame and The Artifacts. But, I’ve also got joints on here with some talented up and comers such as First Division, MidaZ and Big Gutta. Plus the sh*t is free – so enjoy! -Marco Polo
