Love to Hear the Story: Marco Polo "Nostalgia" feat. Masta Ace

Marco Polo "Nostalgia" (feat. Masta Ace)

dir. by Schackman Films

Speaking of not forgetting, here comes Masta Ace to remind us why we love this game so much, and that Rawkus still exists. This is fun, confrontational and skilled artistic expression. From break-dancing to beat-boxing, the video showcases every corner of the hip-hop block. The opening of the work, moving from the neighborhood shop to the streets in one take, grabs our attention from the get-go. Masta Ace keeps us there with some slick couplets, and the rest of clip is filled with a downright rarity in modern hip-hop - positive images of society, black and white.
