Buckshot Lefonque – Buckshot Lefonque

Pride Of Taranna Series Pt. 9: BMV #9, 3-For-$10 Deal #4 – Buckshot Lefonque – Buckshot Lefonque

This 1994 debut album from Branford Marsalis’ jazzy hip-hoppy soul r&b reggae rock project is an absolute keeper. The groove is complete, the mix of jazz, world music, hip hop, hell, all the ones I already listed, is perfect. Have a look at the personnel list (below), too. 

Throw this on, groove the night away. Add in vocals from Maya Angelou on I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, and a cover of Elton John’s Mona Lisas (And Mad Hatters), and… you know all you need to know.

I swear. SO GOOD.

Hit It Or Quit It? Hahahahahahahahaha HIT.
