Editors’ Notes

While his old-school partner in rhyme has since become one of the most powerful icons in Hollywood, Philly hip-hop pioneer DJ Jazzy Jeff hasn't exactly been slacking all these years. Though you may not hear him on the radio or see him on TV, he's been steadily working, producing new music, mentoring young artists, making dope mixtapes, and traveling the world as an in-demand DJ. In 2002 he dropped The Magnificent>, a stellar collection of top-shelf music featuring an array of artists affiliated with his Touch of Jazz studio, and the first album released under his own name. Five years later he's back with this follow-up, another strong (and totally slept-on) record that combines classic-minded production, expert-level scratching, and sharp rhymes from both all-stars and upstarts alike. Method Man absolutely murders it on the rowdy "Hold It Down," J Live gets loose on the Allen Iverson-sampling throwback "Practice," and Twone Gabz writes a love letter to rap music on "Hip Hop." Other features include Jean Grae, Big Daddy Kane, Posdnous, and CL Smooth. All in all a solid album from an under-rated legend.

Customer Reviews


DJ Jazzy Jeff ain't going anywhere. And it's obvious with this new album! This album is hot and has a lot of cool new songs and beats. Buy the album and support your and my favorite DJ of all time!!!

can't stop groovin' to this

DJ Jazzy Jeff came hard with this one, reminds me of hip hop back in the day when the right song could change your mood and make your day better. Very highly recommended.

True Hip-Hop!

DJ JJ has shown what hip-hop can be again. Hot beats and rhymes, not click tracks and yellin' about money, booty, cars and guns. I love what he's sayin' on the track "Hip-Hop". C'mon hip-hop, take this cue to get rap back on track as a forward-thinking, aware art-form. We have to bring ourselves up to a new level.

DJ Jazzy Jeff's accomplishments extend well beyond his status as one-half of a multi-platinum rap duo. Regarded as a pioneering turntable tactician for his well-honed skills and for his development of the transformer scratch, the Philadelphian (born Jeff Townes) founded a production house — called A Touch of Jazz — a few years into his alliance with Will Smith as DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince. Since parting ways with his partner, the DJ has worked on records by KRS-One, Kenny Lattimore,...
