When does summer officially start?
Whenever DJ Jazzy Jeff and MICK say so.
For their seventh year in a row, the record spinning collaborators are unveiling their warm weather ritual Summertime 7 just in time to kick off charcoal grills, waving American flags, and cannon balls into your neighbor’s backyard pool.
The tape sits at just over an hour, which is long enough to roast up a few hot dogs and soak up the Fourth of July rays, and features a host of artists including Jay-Z, TLC, Eric Clapton, Mary J Blige, A Tribe Called Quest, and Norah Jones.
Download this and all of the Summertime projects from their website and take a listen below.
It’s summertime, folks.
