Jazzmataz (Guru Tribute)

Jay Electronica (Ft. Tone Treasure)

Jay Electronica’s tribute to MC Guru from Gang Starr. The beat he spits over was produced by DJ Premier, the other half of Gang Starr, and was originally used as the intro to the 1995 Group Home album Livin' Proof.

Guru lead a movement to unite hip-hop and jazz in the 1990s and 2000s, producing 4 guest-driven albums titled Jazzmatazz – each bypassing the art of sampling by calling on bonafide jazz musicians for studio recordings.
