Pick A Hue From DJ Jazzy Jeff’s ‘Life Colors’

Before we even had a chance to stop spinning the third installment of his Summertime series, Lifted Research Group and Complex have teamed up with Philedephia's finest, DJ Jazzy Jeff. Your favorite DJ's favorite DJ presents us with Life Colors, an hour-long mix of old favorites and new hits guaranteed to help get you through the work week and into the upcoming three-day weekend. This is the kind of project that makes a youngin' save up their lunch money for a pair of controllers and a Macbook while driving an old-school pro to dust off the 1200s and put in some serious work. The eclectic upbeat mix has Jeff giving us a fresh spin on tracks that you thought you were tired of, Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" and The Throne's "Ni--as in Paris" for instance, while coming out of the left field with random yet perfectly fitting cuts. Where else will get Kendrick Lamar, Ginuwine and Portishead in the same spot? Even if you don't feel every song in the mix (I'm looking at you Waka Flocka Flame) you gotta give Jeff some credit for the blends, cuts and overall creativity of this project. Now please excuse me while I enjoy my second spin without playing mixtape evangelist. If you'd like to join me, stream the mix below before succumbing to the inevitable download.
