"Real Detroit Weekly 1/17/07"

by Tom Matich

From Wu-Gambinos to Roc La Familia, hip-hop maintains an obsession with mafia movies and mobsters as imaginary “kingpins” like Frank White rapped about “the commission.” In a city where the infamous Black Mafia Family was founded, there’s an authentic Italian MC in the abyss, Marco Polo.

“Hip-hop has had its changes from the original elements to nowadays everyone’s wanting to be in the mob just like the movies,” Marco says. “Those movies gave an image to fear 'true gangstas!' I guess these rappers you’re talking about wanna be feared and CAN relate to those movies. Me personally, being a full-blooded Italian, I grew up to NOT talk about mafia. No one wants to get indicted, capisce?”

Marco won’t be sleeping with the fishes anytime soon. He’s preparing the release of a new mixtape, Throw Away Jointz Vol. 2, featuring catchy Italiano-flavored club cuts like “Hey Marco” to help build more buzz for his upcoming album, The Import. “Yeah I’m in tha club,” Marco says. “I’m in tha studio. I'm covering up with jobs. I’m in tha streets. I’m with women. I’m kickin’ it with fam. I’m raw, I’m ol' skool, I’m new. I dumb it down, I feed ur mind. I’m east, west, south, I’m Detroit! I’m makin’ beats, I’m MCin’. I’m sharing real life experiences. I teach, I show, I prove. I’m ‘bout go and take what’s mine! Ask about me!”You can inquire about Marco at myspace.com/marcopoloitaliano or join him at Club 54 on Jan. 27 in celebration of Throw Away Jointz Vol. 2’s release.
