We’re Talking About Practice

DJ Jazzy Jeff Revolutionizes the Game. No, really.

By Jake Appleman   

When I was in Sevilla over two months ago, my buddy and I were walking down the street late at night and we noticed a poster for a DJ Jazzy Jeff concert that was going to take place two days after we were gone. “Hmm…that’s too bad,” I thought, though I mostly figured, as an American, it would have been cool and easy to talk to “Jazz” about why he always got thrown out of the house and why he always wore that cologne that pissed off Uncle Phil so much. Little did I know, Jeff’s new album Return of the Magnificent, is, well, magnificent. At the very least the Allen Iverson inspired rant “Practice”, featuring J-Live, is fire. Check it out!

    I got the cd about a month ago and thought that track was crazy! I wonder what made Jazzy use A.I. for that.

    I’m sorry DP (I hesitate to think what it stands for), you need to retire “Play wit’ it” – it’s getting super-tired.

    The song is about Practice, not a game.. not a game… not a game, PRACTICE! That was classic.

    So glad you told me about this album, I’m leaving right now to grab it.

    Jazzy Jeff’s last album was good, too.

    Jazzy Jeff is one of the most underrated DJs of all time. A couple of years ago right after JMJ passed they had a tribute on an awards show with a bunch of famous DJs and Jazzy murdered them all.

    DP – Slobodan and Chukaz are not, to my knowledge, the same person.However, you are right – play wit it is awesome, whatever the hell it means.It’s part of the social fabric of slamonline.

    God it’s fun to see what slips through the censors. Play wit it.

  • Slobodan Chutzpah

    Chukaz and yours truly are indeed not the same person. @DP: fair enough, you go ahead and play wit’ it, son. (Not like that!) I was probably just feeling cranky.

    Eion is a cool dude. I guess slobodan is cool as well. play wit it.

    We’ve played this album at least 10 times in the SLAMDome. Very good. The skit where Jeff calls Will and asks if anyone is ever looking for him is really funny too.

  • Chris O

    I like the track after this one. Jean Gray? I think that’s her name. She kills it. And J-Live is all kinds of cool.

    Jean Grae is the best female MC in the game.

    I’ve been using those as sound bites and drops for my radio show for quite some time now. That practice joint never gets old.

    Thank you Jake. I just finally got this to download. It’s awesome. J-Live should rename himself DJ Amb!en he’s so slept on. I’ma buy this shortly.

    You know I love J-Live, he puts on a great live show. But when are you going to give some SLAM love to my man J-Zone aka Captain Backslap??
