    @Morty, Thanks Homie !! You posted 2 great tracks by 2 great artists . Arrested Development played a free show in my home town about 14 years ago and they were amazing !! I was also lucky enough to catch the Digable Planets reunion tour last year and it was a bucket list moment for me . Digable Planets have always had a place in my playlist .
    Bumpin this right now ..

    @Morty , bummed I never got to see Tribe . I did see Phife Dawg when he was on tour promoting the Ventilation : Da Lp album . He was great . When I lived in Florida , Tribe came through on their reunion tour . All other shows were affordable , but the venue they were at that was close to me charge $400 for general admission !!!! That was out of my range at the time . Still sad I had to miss it .
    Here’s a few more I listened to today

    My man! Thank you for this! Seriously diggin' it hard! Love, love, love the vibraphones! People don't understand till you see (feel) them live. Reverberates through your whole being! Still my favorite instrument.

    Jazz is freedom!

    Dude, this place is hot fire! This is where all the Jazz guys go where I live to play the real shit after their paying gigs. This place is unreal! Some of the coolest shit I've ever seen...usually for no more than a $10er! Everyone should experience music like this at least once in their lives. Jams that can sometimes go on for hours non-stop! So so hip...

    Jazz rap!

    Lots of rap has jazz elements but my first intro to heavily influenced jazz rap was Guru, his smooth vocals/flow is a perfect pairing.

    @felon167inc I couldn’t agree more . Music is the goods !! Any genre . I’ve had a conversation going with @Morty that started with Roy Ayers , and it has ran the gambit of genres since it started . You can just about pick any genre and spend a few minutes and come up with a dope track from that genre .
    Never listened to Chronnix , but he sounds good . Not the same , but reminds me of Collie Buddz

    That Nyoil joint is serious !!!! Premier , Rakim , Nas , and KRS-One couldn’t be called anything but classic !!!!! Great posts homie !!!! I recently caught KRS live and that dude is still on top of his game . It’s like he’s still in his 20s , but with the wisdom of a god that’s been here forever ...
    @Razshiro , you hit a soft spot in my heart with Ice Cube . I caught him live a few years ago and it was amazing as well . He puts it all out there for the fans and doesn’t let the fame get to him ( at least it seemed that way ) .

    ^^ all fire . Keep that good shit coming .
    That whole deal with Bam was fucked up , and really hit me hard . KRS definitely took an L with his stance on that . I hope that 13 and good was meant to be an eye opening fictional story and not a hint to how he lives. Being a father , I can’t even wrap my head around abusing kids ....
    Geto Boys , Rakim your killin it . And Big L !!
