1. Yasiin Gaye — The Return (Side Two) by
    Amerigo Gazaway (AUDIO).


    (Art: Drew Dernavich)

    The Soul Mates Series by Amerigo Gazaway continues with the next magical chapter in the Yasiin Bey ( Mos Def ) and Marvin Gaye connection. Oh, and good news, when you download the project, you get the revitalized "Ms. Fat Booty Pt. II" featuring Ghostface Killah 's vintage verse as a bonus track.

    Says Amerigo: "I wanted to build this side from more of Marvin's original production work. He was doing a lot of what we do now, in terms of looping and pulling samples from other pre-recorded sessions decades before hip-hop made it common practice to do so. This also gave me the room to feature other artist [Chuck Berry, The Temptations, Talib, etc.] and re-present those classic Mos [Def] versus in a new context."

      This album is genius. Musicological expertise plus a love for Hip Hop and using those skills to historically reconstruct and reblend is the future of this art form...
