I figured that following Obama’s State of the Union, it might not be so bad to have a song with some political flare. Jay Electronica’s new single “Jazzmatazz” fits that mold, opening with the ever-inspirational verbage of Dr. Martin Luther King.
With this track, Jay pays tribute to MC Guru, a member of Gang Starr who passed away last year after battling cancer. From my perspective, it’s through-and-through good, jazzy hip-hop.
