The beats and rhymes that came out of the northern Queens projects in the early- to mid-90s were stark and vibrant, a reflection of their environment. Producers like Marley Marl, Large Professor, and Havoc of Mobb Deep used an extensive knowledge of black music from the late 60’s to the early 80’s to produce new sounds.This is a definite link to the jazz legacy of the African American communities throughout Queens, NY--places like Corona, East Elmhurst, and Saint Albans where Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne, John Coltrane, and James Brown all lived at some point in their lives. These producers started with records that perhaps their parents had and used their creative ingenuity with technology to create a fresh sound that still sounds new today: e.g. the Ahmad Jamal sample on Nas’s “The World is Yours,” or Mobb Deep’s “Shook Ones Part II,” with its electronically modified snippet of Herbie Hancock. This era of hip hop can be viewed as a continuation of the jazz legacy of black Queens.
