Toronto native Marco Polo already has an impressive resumé: Kool G Rap, Copywrite, Sadat X, Masta Ace, Torae, Large Professor, Royce Da 5’9″, and more. Clearly impressed, he’s been picked up by Brooklyn Nets and YES, their official channel, for this funky snippet licensed for Nets broadcasts. Nice to see someone pretty dope get this type of exposure!
You don’t have to be a patron of the Barclays Center to be familiar with the soundscape that’s now symbolic of the Brooklyn Nets. The anthemic horns and infectious beat, composed by the Brooklyn by way of Toronto producer Marco Polo, is also used as officially licensed music for the Nets, courtesy of the YES Network, the team’s official cable broadcast channel. Those that tune into the games will be sure to recognize the animated video clip, which is used at both the intro and outro of all their broadcasts, as well as during highlights, commentary, and transitioning to and from commercial breaks, in the house that Hov built.
