Hip Hop Homage: Sergio Mendes - Timeless

Ever since Big L of Hot Rain showed me the album Timeless last weekend, it has been on repeat. Anyone who loves reggae, knows how many musical styles out their complement the genre, and thus I can't help but feel obligated to share not just reggae, but other great music that has appeal to reggae lovers. This album was released in 2006 by Brazilian Artist Sergio Mendes and American Rapper Will.I.Am and features a solid collection of hip-hop and neo-soul artists. I love the brazilian samba style mixed with smooth jazz, some sick beats, and top notch vocalists. Enjoy just a few of my favorite tracks and grab the album for yourself off ITUNES. This music truly is timeless. Perfect music for any occassion. Muito Bom!
