DJ Jazzy Jeff & Rhymefest’s New Music Together Has A Lot Of People Hyped (Audio)
Last week, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Rhymefest revamped their “Jeff n’ Fess” tandem after nearly a decade. They released “Mr. Officer,” a powerful track featuring Eric Roberson that made no bones about showing the fear, the hurt, and the disconnect with Black citizens caused by police profiling and brutality.
“No Fear” keeps the greater good of people in mind, but takes another tone. Attached to Marvel’s Ta-Nehisi Coates-written Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet Part 6 the Chicago, Illinois award-winning veteran MC clears the table, speaking up. With Jeff (and Daniel Crawford) producing this track with a ton of chutzpah, ‘Fest digs into the beat and raps with a passion on why he’s a 38 year-old MC who feels ageless, why the wealthy bite their tongues, and why Chicago needs help, now. The perfect companion to a comic character who fights for the oppressed, this is an incredible, uplifting gem about charging up, and never backing down from what’s wrong or unjust.
For the beat Heads, Jeff sprinkled A Touch Of Jazz in the track and left the instrumental for MCs who are feeling brave—or fearless.
#BonusBeat: Marvel Studios made this video about part 6 of their series, which features Jeff n’ Fess’ song:
