According to a study conducted by Swiss cheesemaker Beat Wampfler and a team of researchers from the Bern University of Arts, while hip-hop made it ‘funky’, cheese made whilst rocking out to Led Zeppelin or relaxed with Mozart had milder zests. Gouda thought it!
Came across this short video earlier. It’s very much just an introduction (it’s only twelve minutes long), and it’s a shame there’s no room for a genius like Nas, but it’s an interesting look at the lyrical skills involved in rap.
The Doo Bop Song by Miles featuring Easy Moe Bee. I bought this on import in 1992 from Soul Source in Luton, it was released just after Miles death the previous year.
Not rated among jazz cognoscenti, for me it indicates a desire to keep moving forward and explore new styles and sounds.
Mostly though it was just a great tune and in line with a lot of the other lazy, loping, jazzy hip hop I was listening to at the time such as Guru and Kool Chip.
