24 years ago today, Guru of the legendary Gang Starr, dropped the hip-hop/jazz fusion album “Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1”. At a time when sampling jazz music was heavy in hip-hop beats, Guru decided to take it all the way there and expose hip-hop fans to the artists they’ve been listening to unknowingly. It was the first time we heard Keith without Premier, and he would go on to release a couple more Jazzmatazz albums. It dropped May 18th, 1993.
