Few artists have arrived on the scene with such a commanding presence as Scrooge. In Scrooge’s debut track, Marco Polo, it is immediately made clear that Scrooge is on a mission, or as he put it, “Went from penny pinching, dollars spendin’, thousands getting’ now it’s millions pending.” Marco Polo being the first official release from Scrooge’s freshmen mixtape has a lot riding on its shoulders. Produced by Shawdii P, Marco Polo is fully equipped with an arsenal of strong bass lines, glaring beats and snares over which Scrooge implants his indomitable raps and addictive wordplay. Rapping on how he’s managed to accumulate wealth, how life has changed since the hustle began, and some outright stunting-Marco Polo is an undeniably strong single. With Politics As Usual’s early November release date approaching, prepare for Scrooge’s name to pop up with increasing frequency.
