Jazz has never been one of my favorite genres. Yet, it is the foundation of hip-hop samples (along with James Brown and Funkadelic). Chuwee’s Yes Yes Yo reminded me of this and inspired this week’s playlist. You’ll find A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Gang Starr, The Roots, Nas, Eric B. and Rakim and others.

Guaranteed to help make a smooth transition into the weekend.  Press play, sit back and enjoy. If you missed Yes Yes Yo by Chuwee, click here.
