This past April, DJ 2-Tone Jones created one of the better mashup projects of the year with Shaolin Jazz: The 37th Chamber. It successfully paired up a cappellas from the Wu-Tang Clan canon with classic Be-Bop jazz tracks. And it appears that the Jones wasn’t done juxtaposing the Wu with seminal works just yet.
The DJ has now released The Gil Scott Suite, a three-track EP that blends more Wu raps with samples from Gil Scott-Heron’s storied catalog. You can get a sampling of just how well Jones pulls this off on opening track “Gil’s Pinky Ring (Pt. 1),” which is streaming below. I think it’s safe to assume you’ll want to hear the whole thing.
