Talkin’ all that jazz

Total respect to The Last Poets, The Watts Prophets, Gil Scott-Heron, Herbie Hancock & Grandmixer DXT, Prince Paul & Stetsasonic & De La Soul, DJ Premier & Guru of Gang Starr, Q-Tip & A Tribe Called Quest & The Jungle Brothers, and Large Pro for really kicking off the jazz influence in hip hop.

Here’s a new video carrying on the tradition.

Here’s Stetsasonic’s “Talkin’ all that jazz” from ’88.

Speaking of the legendary Stetsasonic, most Dead Prez fans probably have no idea where parts of their most popular songs came from.

And speaking of the great DJ Premier, here’s a new video for a track he produced for Joel Ortiz, plus a funny cameo appearance. Keeping grimy & hooligan-type sh!t alive, just how I like it.
