Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG New York, NY -- Continuing to add to its growing roster of artists, Duck Down Records welcomes Torae & Marco Polo to the Duck Down family. The MC/Producer team is prepping a new album entitled Double Barrel, which will be entirely produced by Marco Polo and is set to be released this Spring.

Torae, a Coney Island native, is one of the hardest working MCs in the game today. His last mixtape, Daily Conversation (released in 2008) featured production from DJ Premier, 9th Wonder, Black Milk, Khrysis and of course Marco Polo, and received high accolades from the Hip Hop Community.

Marco Polo has proven to be a dynamic producer in Hip Hop working with Kardinal Offishall, Rakim, Kool G Rap, Masta Ace, Boot Camp Clik, Heltah Skeltah, Buckshot, Sadat X, and Large Professor. In the Spring of 2007, Marco Polo released his critically acclaimed album, Port Authority. Now, less than two years later, he has teamed up with Torae to present Double Barrel.

Marco Polo states he "was getting tired of Rappers not rapping anymore. Double Barrel sounds like some exciting sh*t you turn up LOUD and get amped to. Good fighting music, training music, driving music, killing music."
