Blurred Genre Lines: Early 90’s ”Jazz Rap” Groups

   

In the late 80s & early 90s, there were a lot of ”jazz rap” groups that were bringing something different & innovative to music. Some of these groups were A Tribe Called Quest, Digable Planets, US3, & De La Soul. I love how they infused jazz with rap to help blur the lines of simply placing music in one genre & still to this day, many people love these groups & their positivism theory inspired messages.
