Marco Polo cooks up another classic pairing for his “Newport Authority” mixtape. The beat is one he’s had in the stash for a short minute, sampling the Al. B Sure! cut “Night & Day.” He gave folks another listen at the recent Beat Society in NYC, probably hinting at what he had in the holster. Now we get to hear it finished with the legendary Big Daddy Kane pimping in some cougar’s ear.
It’s a little grittier than what Rashad Smith did with it for LL Cool J’s original “Loungin'” beat but Kane’s voice is a perfect match. Shylow on the cuts.
