Hannibal Stax & Marco Polo - 46 Bars of Death
January’s DJBooth-hosted The Honorable Mixtape, the latest street album from B.K. emcee Hannibal Stax, featured numerous joints produced by Soulspazm labelmate Marco Polo. Those who were feeling their collaborative chemistry will be happy to hear that, just a few short months after that project’s arrival, the twosome are getting ready to drop a full-blown collaborative set. On the lead single off the forthcoming full-length, released along with some gritty official visuals, Stax unleashes 46 Bars of Death over his partner’s thumping boom-bap boardwork. Why 46, you ask? Why not—with no hook to break up his bars, the rhymesayer is free to spit for as long as he damn well pleases. Complete with cuts by Shylow, this low-key banger is just one of many quality jams set to appear on Seize the Day, scheduled to hit record stores and online retailers May 7.
