Every year, at just about this time – well, for the past three, anyway – the legendary Jazzy Jeff and MICK (formerly Mick Boogie) celebrate the season with some choice rhymes and R&B on their joint Summertime mixtape series.
On this, the 4th edition, the eponymous intro-version of Jeff & his then young partner’s warm weather anthem is handled by Talib Kweli.
“Jazzy Jeff and I are so thrilled to once again unleash [another] Summertime mix into the world. This is our fourth year,” said Mick in a press statement. “Jeff created something timeless in the ’90s with [the song] ‘Summertime,’ and we are so excited to keep pushing it further and further to new generations. Enjoy it and see us in a city near you.”
This year’s joint features Prince, Little Brother, D’Angelo, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Sade, Camp Lo, Intro, Hall and Oates, Biz, Diamond D, Main Source, One Way, Guy and more.
It’s perfect for beaches, barbecues and to and from the vacation spot. Bump this in your system.
