It is kind of funny how you can miss something that is directly in your backyard. Maker Chicago's beatsmith Marco Jacobo has been a DJ and producer since the mid 90’s. I had no idea who he was, let alone that he is right here in Chicago until Stones Throw released its Maker Vs. Now-Again record.

There is another interesting connection here too. Maker has worked with Washington based Emcees JFK and Onry Ozzborn of the Old Dominion crew. He also teams up with Qwel to form Chicago's Galapagos4 another hip hop group label I have been sleeping on. Yikes, I need to start studying.

Anyways, Maker marks his Now-Again Records debut with Maker Vs. Now-Again an entry in the same “music-library” series that saw the release of limited edition albums like Oh No Vs. Now-Again and Koushik Vs. Now-Again. This CD is only available at stonesthrow.com, and comes packaged in a “mini-LP” thick cardboard “tip-on” sleeve. Only 1000 copies of this CD were manufactured. Check out a sample. It is pretty jaw dropping.

Maker has put in mad work. Do your homework and your gonna find many albums worth of dope material. FYI; Galapagos 4 is a label not a group.
