It's pretty much relegated to the underground but Jazz Rap is an incredible genre. Artists are hard to come by though. What I've heard and love is Freestyle Fellowship, Aceyalone, and Guru (from Gang Starr) Does anybody else know of any good Jazz Rap out there?

Hm... Sounds interesting. I'll have to check it out sometime.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.

It's my favourite rap subgenre
Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time
For y'all have knocked her up.
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.

check out NoNeedz, his beats are usually either reggae or jazz influenced. He also was a guest artist on High Tide's cd, Play Me Reggae (on Bammoth (Remix)), and Clear Conscience's cd What's Inside Counts (on Only Natural).

Madlib (especially Madvillainy by Madvillain)

The only advantage of home-schooling is that it gives you good reason to commit suicide.


Hit this once or twice, and you'll be twice as nice.

Madlib in his own is much more jazzy that Madvillain...

I know. But I like Madvillain better.
