Ladies and gentlemen, we've got a double feature. Coming off their new album, The Art of Throwing Darts, Shaheed & DJ Supreme's "Jazz Men" is a spot-on bullseye.

Essix and DJ Supreme meld vibes to create a beat that will all but induce a sensuous bounce in listeners as they appreciate Shaheed's vicious flow that seamlessly streams bars together, reflecting on historical jazz and hip-hop collaborations. In the accompanying music video for "Jazz Men," directed by Richard Giles, we join our three jazz men lounging and enjoying each other's company and music. Shaheed & DJ Supreme's signature vibe of warmth and welcoming is accentuated by the cool calm of Essix dropping mad riffs like it's nothing. Relax
