    I love hip hop and Jazz, unfortunately there is not a whole lot of it out there. Or its so underground that you really got to search for it.


    I hope to hear other music and share ideas
  3. Then you'll probably like Hip-Hop Jazz!

  9. I love jazzy hip hop and this thread but there is so much missing:

    I could not agree with you more. I have spend much time exploring this underground world of jazzy hip hop and I feel I should share my findings. This is my guide to jazzy hip hop:

    Good Artists and (in my opinion) Their Best Album(s)
    Nujabes- Metaphorical Music, Modal Soul
    Eric B & Rakim- Don't Sweat the Technique
    Rakim- The Master
    Gang Starr (A duo of Guru and Dj Premier)- Moment of Truth
    Guru- Jazzmatazz
    Dj Premier - Any of his stuff while with Guru as Gang Starr
    re:star- Everlasting Truth
    Blazo- Colors of Jazz
    J Dilla- The Shining
    Shin-Ski- Shattered Soul on a Pastel Sky
    Dj Okawari- Mirror
    Shing02- Any of the Luv Sics or anything with Nujabes
    Pete Rock/Cl Smooth- Mecca and the Soul Brother
    Kondor- Peace of Soul
    CYNE- Evolution Flight
    Uyama Hiroto- A Son of the Sun
    Five Deez- Koolmotor
    Fat John (of Five Deez)- Samurai Champloo
    Pase Rock- Bullshit as Usual
    Nomak- Calm
    DSK- It Ain't Me
    Thomas Prime- Waiting for Tomorrow
    Substantial- To this Union a Sun was Born
    Gracias- Gracias EP is the only real album but 'feel me' is the best track
    Knowmads- The Knewbook
    A Tribe Called Quest- Midnight Marauders
    Clear Soul Forces- Detroit Revolution(s)

    These are some of the best (IMO) however there are many more- just never stop looking. Also check out bob42jh's youtube channel as he's got some great hip hop.

    Here are some of my favourite jazz/hip-hop songs:
