"Jazz Thing"

"Manifest" gave listeners a glimpse of Gang Starr's jazz-influenced sound, but with "Jazz Thing" the duo went all out, giving listeners a walk through music history and explaining how it lives on through hip hop. Gang Starr's cross-genre fusion was a huge influence on later efforts by Digable Planets, A Tribe Called Quest and countless others.
