Comment: polo is a producer why would he touch the mic?...Thats a retarded statement...He captures his concepts/emotion through the music...its the emcees job to verbally relay the feeling. Nostalgia doesnt necessarily mean you have to talk about the culture or industry the way it was. it is anything that holds true and gives you memories. So there was much to say in that sense... You sound like a hater or your ignorant becuase your main discrepancies dont make sense! This track was decent, I do agree that polo should have brought a little more to the table. but all in all the feeling of nostalgia was captured.

Comment: Aside from having a video to go along with it, “Nostalgia,” the b-side to Marco Polo’s first single from his upcoming album, Port Authority, it’s Masta Ace that steals the show. While Marco Polo is only a producer, a track such as “Nostalgia” should demand something a little more from Polo, who doesn’t even attempt touch the microphone. The quintessential question becomes one of, if Masta Ace can explain the nostalgic value of “back-in-the-day” raps and the foundations of hip-hop culture, how can someone who doesn’t even rap on the song explain that feeling? Certainly the upbeat production counts for something, being on Rawkus Records is nostalgic in a sense and having an old “rhyme slinger” such as Masta Ace adds to the overall effect. But when old-school culture is being paid homage to, not having anything to say cripples the point of a song such as “Nostalgia.”
