Little Dragon – “Twice” (Marco Polo Remix)

My favorite Little Dragon song re-interpreted just for sh*ts & giggles…Enjoy.
Marco

Polo! You probably know a producer or two who does stuff just because. But, in large part because they are not Marco Polo, the result actually sounds like it was sh*ts & giggles. No disrespect. Just saying.

Such will never be the case for Marco. The “Twice” track by Little Dragon was fully explored by Marco Polo, who laid claim and made it his own… with this tight remix!

Rah Digga – “Storm Comin” feat. Chuck D (Prod. Marco Polo)

artworks-000084591176-b5k7be-t500x500

The start and end samples though… from the “Terminator” movie (ah… now the hook makes sense: there’s a “Storm Coming”). Rah Digga will have heads hollering ‘Message!’ on this one. Sure sex sells, but it’s gonna come down to rhymes in the end! Moreover, emcees (esp. females) Rah admonishes you to get your lives together.

F#ck cocacaine. Fame is a hell of a drug! How far you gone go trying to get that buzz? How many you gone f#ck trying to get that plug? In the future are you still gone get that love?

And the Chuck D outro…no more silence, just guidance. Take heed. Listen.
