Guru & Solar Set To Drop New Mixtape Jazzmatazz: The Time Bomb (Back To The Future)

Fresh off an international tour, Guru, super-producer, Solar, and 7 Grand Records announce the February 2008 release of Guru’s Jazzmatazz: The Timebomb/Back To The Future Mixtape, the “raw” companion to the Jazzmatazz Vol. 4 album. The Mixtape carefully and superbly crafted by Super-producer Solar exhibits the “Golden Era” New York essence along with a cutting edge futuristic twist! Hence the title, “Back To The Future.”

The tracks are pure “bangers” and the guest appearances are classic as they compliment Guru’s iconic yet streetwise vocals! The MC’s selected represent the best of America’s true Hip Hop artists that hail from the “Underground” scene that Guru has remained so true to. There are features such as reggae artist Damian Marley, Aceyalone and Zion I from the West Coast, Blue Scholars from Seattle, Mr. Lif from Boston, Yungun from London, as well as legends Lord Tariq from the Bronx, Nature from Queensbridge, C. Knowledge from Digable Planets and Tony Touch to name a few.

The album also features up-and-coming 7 Grand Records artists K. Born & Highpower from Philadelphia and Young Pablo from Paterson, New Jersey. This is no ordinary mixtape CD as it is hosted by the Mixtape King himself, DJ Doo Wop, who is featured on a couple of tracks. Watch out for the exclusive interview with Guru & Solar coming soon to Raptalk.net.
