Jazzucation at Soul Sides

Soul Sides has a series of posts going called "Who Flipped It Better?" that links classic soul and jazz with the mostly old school hip hop producers that sampled it. There's some great music there, but listening to it makes one feel a little bit melancholy about the state of hip-hop today, especially the mostly unlistenable mainstream gangsta and crunk music that dominates the radio. Don't let that sentiment intimidate you, though, because there are great opportunities for a jazz and hip-hop education.
