Default Jazz Rap

I was recently introduced to some hip-hop/rap music that incorporates jazz (thanks Pobody's_Nerfect). The group I like the most is ArtOfficial. Anybody else dig this stuff? For me it's the perfect combo.

Check out some videos:

Yeah I really like Artofficial, finally got around to digging up their full LP. Some other good jazz hip hop groups are Jazz Addixx and Gang Starr

I also quite enjoyed that 'Humming Jazz' disc, I think this genre really should be bigger than it is.

Artofficial sounds real good, like a jazzy and more acidy version of the roots. I really like mc solarr, us3 and Buckshot LeFonque. Try those if havent hear em yet

I've heard a little Gang Starr, I like it pretty well. I don't know if we'd put Gruvis Malt in this category but they got some jazz and rappin goin on for em. I should get into this though, sounds like good stuff.

Default Typical Cats?

I recently found Artofficial too, and I reallly love them. Anybody like Typical Cats? They are awesome. They have some really neat beats, and good flows.

check them out, some great songs are "Snake Oil" "Any Day" and "Qweloquiallisms" but all of their stuff is really awesome.

I only have the EP for Artoffical up right now, but I'll be more than happy to upload their full length LP tonight before I go to bed and shoot you a link in the morning.
