Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. I am continuing to pay tribute to the very influential Guru who died a couple weeks back. Guru is most famously known as the MC of the Hip-Hop duo Gangstarr, but he has also released a few albums under his own name. In the 90’s he started a series of Hip-Hop meets Jazz albums called Jazzmatazz. In 2000, he released the third installment, which featured more soul singers than jazz musicians, which is why it is my favorite volume in the series. Some of the amazing singers on this album include Erykah Badu, Kelis, Angie Stone, Donnell Jones, Amel Larriuex, Les Nubians, Macy Gray, and more. The album also features production from legends like the Neptunes, J Dilla, DJ Premier,DJ Scratch, and the Roots.
