Hip Hop Songs with Jazz?

Hey Org! Can you all help me find hip hop songs with jazz in them? I can only think of A Tribe Called Quest but just wondering if there are more. Please post YouTube videos. Thanks!

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Good pull.

To me, Madvillainy one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time.

As for jazz-infused albums, my vote still goes to The Low End Theory.

You know, although much has been said about Nas' Illmatic, I would greatly recommend it as a "hip hop with Jazz" album, from the sampling, to the guest trumpet on "Life's A Bitch", the approach is very JAZZ RAP.

Tribe for sure.
Also both Pete Rock & CL Smooth CDs.
Mecca And the Soul Brother and The Main Ingredient
Those guys split in the early nineties left fans like
me broken-hearted. These cats kicked ass during their brief time
in the spotlight.
Don't laugh at my funk
This funk is a serious joint

Not only one of the best jazz-infused hip-hop songs, but one of the top 10 hip-hop tracks of all time, and one of the best songs of the 90's regardless of genre.
