The Return of the Magnificant...

Published by Warren Dell under on Monday, March 12, 2007

While those whose heads don't nod to the Hip-Hop beat may forever associate Jazzy Jeff for being the guy who was always being thrown out of the Banks household in The Fresh Prince, those that do will know what high holding he has in music. Following on from the critical acclaim of his last long player and after a load of various Hip-Hop and Soulful House mixtapes, Jazzy Jeff drops an EP before the release of The Return of the Magnificant. The James Brown sampling and Rhymefest featuring Jeff N Ness takes it back to the days of when the MC and DJ went hand in hand, while fellow midwest rhymslingers Little Brother pop up on Whatever You Want. For the soul heads out there the excellent and vastly underated Raheem DeVaughn complements the smoothness of My Soul Ain't For Sale while the funky Bossynova maybe minus vocals but provides plenty of layers to get into. The EP is perfect for DJ's but it's the full LP I want to get my hands on, the wait isn't long.
