Rap fans that only associate Jazzy Jeff with the image of him getting tossed out of the house by Uncle Phil need to wake up. On his excellent and aptly titled debut release, 2002's THE MAGNIFICENT, DJ Jazzy Jeff brought his production and scratch talents to a new generation of hip-hop listeners. With the sequel, THE RETURN OF THE MAGNIFICENT EP, Jeff continues to do his thing, proving himself every bit as skilled behind the boards as a 9th Wonder or a Pete Rock or any one of his purist super-producer contemporaries. Short but sweet with just five cuts, THE RETURN OF THE MAGNIFICENT sees Jeff collaborating with Rhymefest, Little Brother, CL Smooth, and Neo-Jazz vocalist Raheem DeVaughn.
