This is OUR definition of a boombastic jazz style! We selected one video a year, based on the past twenty years of jazz-influenced hip hop. After the intro we start off with ATCQ’s classic ‘Jazz (We’ve Got)’, Guru’s Jazzmatazz marks the middle and we end with some modern day jazzy hip hop. This is twenty years of jazz-loving and head nodding according to The Find Magazine.

This ‘video tape’ (kind of like a Youtube mixtape) is our entry to DragOnTape’s app contest and we need to gather as much ‘Likes’ as possible. So if you’re into jazzy hip hop and dig our selection, please watch it from front to back, ‘Like’ our tape (there’s a Facebook button below the stream), leave a comment or share it with your friends.
