Blue Scholars – “Sagaba”

Year: 2004

Album: Blue Scholars

I love the theme behind the group’s name: highbrow “blue collar.” Seattle is known for its rich history of guitar-based music, but I need to explore its history of hip-hop and rap.

The remix released one year later on The Long March EP is also good:

Brady is the founder of Headphone Nation. He’s responsible for all this mess. Sorry about that. He’s also on Twitter @BradyWGerber
