NEW MUSIC: The Legends League presents Naturally Born Strangers (Rich Kidd, Tona & Adam Bomb) – A Gun and a Pack of Sandwiches (Prod. Rich Kidd)
Coming from the The Great White North by way of Toronto, the highly popular Legends League clothing company presents a brand new project of the auditory kind. Naturally Born Strangers is the musical equivalent to the brand, consisting of MCs Rich Kidd, Tona & Adam Bomb under the creative direction of LL’s commander in chief Bryan Espiritu. Where does the idea of Naturally Born Strangers stem from? Espiritu puts it best, “It was a proclamation of pride in the power of being disliked, unwanted, weird or foreign to the norm. But the embracing of that understanding made me who I am and makes way for new communities of outcasts; the antithesis to the neighborhood and the cynics of its circles.”
The debut track “A Gun & A Pack Of Sandwiches” sees the three Toronto spitters go bar for bar over Rich Kidd’s dark and eerie instrumental, which samples Radiohead’s “Talk Show Host.” The cut takes listeners through the experience of being an outcast in the eyes of others. When those antagonists bump, this is how you bump back, with a gun and a pack of sandwiches dawg!
Be on the lookout for the Naturally Born Strangers mixtape, which will coincide with the release of The Legend League’s newest collection, dropping soon. NBS will have you, ”dying for some more like them Concord sneaks.”

The lead-single from Marco Polo’s forthcoming LP, PA2: The Director’s Cut, accomplishes what no one else has been able to pull off in over a decade–reunite Organized Konfusion. Since the duo disbanded in 1997, there has been no new OK material and every few years or so the usual “reunion rumors” emerge and then disappear.
Marco Polo’s forthcoming LP, “PA2: The Director’s Cut” will be released on 11-12-2013 via Soulspazm Records, with exclusive vinyl courtesy of Slice of Spice. The album features appearances from Talib Kweli, DJ Premier, Posdnuos, Masta Ace, Kardinal Offishall, Styles P, Lil Fame, Alchemist, Oh No, MC Eiht, King Tee, Michael Rapport, Large Professor, Inspectah Deck, Rah Digga, Slaine, Ill Bill, Organized Konfusion, Doppelgangaz & many more.

Listen to my first single “Always” off of my upcoming project:
This is the official music video for my “From Time” cover by Drake & Jhene Aiko
When I first heard the song “From Time”, the melody of the instrumental immediately reminded me of some Michael Jackson chords, so I decided to do a cover song by giving it a more soulful vibe, while blending the two (“Drake – From Time” & “Michael Jackson – The lady in my life”) together, with some beatboxing and additional instrumentation by me. I also wanted to show off my recording studio (RCR Studios) which is located in the downtown Toronto region. Hope you enjoy
