Funky DL – Jazzmatic [Nas Remixes]


Just imagine if this happened and picture the setting…

It’s the late 1930’s and your local jazz club is packed to the brim with people awaiting the rapper Nas and his jazz musicians (orchestrated by Funky DL) along with featured artists to come and play a 10-track set to forever be remembered. The lights are dim and the hall is filled with smoke, whilst the clinking sound of champagne flutes ambiently gesture in the atmosphere. Nas and Funky DL are having their picture taken outside the club in an array of spotlights glaring from their vehicles (see artwork). Then it happens… The two step inside the club and “JAZZMATIC” erupts … All you have to do now is… “press play”…

Make no mistake, this ain’t no half hearted mash up or blend compilation, you can feel, that Funky DL crafted each track around Nas’ vocals and did his best to make it sound as if Nas had originally rhymed over each one.
