Comment: This track gets love just for the title. Jeff N Fess. Dope N Awesome. Stupid Fresh N Fly. Anyhow, this track can be found on The Return of the Magnificent EP, which is a little teaser to Jeff’s upcoming LP of the same title. On this joint, Jazz teams up with Chicago’s Rhymefest, who first earned his stripes on the battle circuit and then received more national exposure for winning a Grammy for co-writing Kanye’s Jesus Walks. However, unlike many battle emcees who fail to transcend their success on wax, Rhymefest has been making dope song after dope song the past few years. On this track, Jazz makes it easy for him by supplying an uptempo, scratch-laden beat that is well-suited to Rhymefest’s punchline heavy delivery. Upon repeated listens, I realized Jazz has strategically placed some James Brownesque “Huhhhs” in the background that serve to really push the pace of the song along. Honestly, I can’t remember the last DJ Jazzy Jeff produced track that I wasn’t feeling. And Rhymefest is on the top of his game right now. Kudos to both for having the sense to work together.
