Earlier this summer, when we last left young Loj, he had endowed the world a mixtape of Theme Music, which was literally a collection of songs built on the samples of theme songs from popular movies and television shows. Some of these were pretty incredible. His latest project Who Got The Jazz, is again nostalgia driven, but has the rapper collabing with a Swedish producer named Vans Cal in search of a sound all but discarded by modern rap. “Smooth” even, is Loj extolling the term’s endless similes, inspired of course, by Vans Cal’s production. And though he doesn’t mention Smooth the “Female Mack” who’s “Strawberries” video was puberty realized for a countrywide after-school Rap City constituent, we’ll be damned if the kid don’t know from smooth. Pick up the rest of Who Got The Jazz here.
