A-Plus has done what few artists have been able to do – enjoy a career spanning over 20 years with albums forever in the hip-hop canon, from Souls’ 93 ‘Til Infinity to his Hiero crew’s 3rd Eye Vision while staying fresh and relevant through it all. Add to that, A-Pleezy is still dropping new projects, like the EDM-inspired project Molly’s Dirty Water, along with a new Souls of Mischief project with Adrian Younge, and we have one of the most eclectic, time-tested MCs still bringing that fire. Check out our exclusive interview with A-Plus as he speaks on his new album, his Hiero crew, the new Souls project, working with his son, and much more. (more…)

Here’s the 5th and final leak before Marco Polo drops his free-LP, Newport Authority 2. Says Marco Polo: “I did a remix for “Stand Up” off the brand new Adrian Younge presents The Delfonics project (who am I big fan of, y’all should cop anything he’s a part of.) Adrian sent me the album early and I made this beat. Tragedy was originally gonna lay down one verse on this on some freestyle sh*t, but once I started hearing his bars I refused to let this be a one verse song! Three verses later and appropriate hook by Slap aka Fizzy Womack aka Lil Fame we have the “Stand Up” remix. Tragedy will have an alternate version of this song on his upcoming album as well. Now please enjoy the final leak from Newport Authority 2!”
