DJ Jazzy Jeff The Return of the Magnificent
- Words: Eric K. Arnold
- Label: BBE-Rapster
Known for the transformer scratch as well as his work with Will "Fresh Prince" Smith, DJ Jazzy Jeff's Hall of Famer credentials were sewn up 15 years ago. On the follow-up to his now-classic solo album The Magnificent, Jazzy again eschews an overly commercial aesthetic, hooks up some fresh-ta-deth tracks, and adds to his already legendary stature. Whether working with well-known artists (Posdnuos, Method Man, Jean Grae, CL Smooth, Big Daddy Kane, Raheem DeVaughn) or relative newcomers (Twone Gabz, ChinahBlac, Peedi Peedi, Rhymefest), Jazzy keeps the quality factor high, infusing each track with just the right amount of musical sensibility. More flavorful than a cheesesteak with extra peppers, this one lives up to its title.
