4746When it comes to beats and rhymes, Canadian producer Marco Polo and Brooklyn MC Torae don’t play, just check their résumé. On his 2007 critically acclaimed album “Port Authority” (Rawkus / Soulspazm), Polo recruited a who’s who of MC’s to ride like Kool G Rap, Large Professor, Kardinall Offishal, Roc Marciano among many others over his hard-hitting instrumentals.
Torae, on the other hand, has certified his rep as one of the game’s illest lyricists in a similar fashion, with remarkable wordplay on his highly touted 2008 street album “Daily Conversation” which featured production by Khrysis, DJ Premier, 9th Wonder, Black Milk, Mr.Attic, Marco Polo. The album solidifyed him as a true emerging Brooklyn MC. So, in the spirit of great hip-hop duos (Gang Starr, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, etc), the producer and the MC signed with Duck Down Records to release their collaborative album “Double Barrel”.

“Double Barrel” features guest appearaances by DJ Premier, Lil Fame, of M.O.P., Sean Price, Guilty Simpson, DJ Revolution, and Masta Ace. Marco Polo, whose debut album, “Port Authority,” garnered him a 2008 Juno Award nomination for best Rap Recording of the year, entirely produced the album. His discography includes production for Masta Ace, Rasco, Bootcamp Clik, Sadat X, Large Professor, Heltah Skeltah and many others.
