The Headhunters is a jazz/funk/fusion group that has been around since the early '70s when they formed as a band for Herbie Hancock's masterpiece "Headhunters" LP. Their music has been sampled time and time again and their heavy backbeat driven funk in a way laid the foundation for hip-hop music. Last week they released another studio album, "Platinum", which continues to blend genres from funk, jazz, R&B, hip-hop and back to jazz/funk.
This might not be the typical post you see on The Lost Tapes but besides hip-hop, I am a big jazz head and since this track features Killah Priest and to a lesser degree Snoop Dogg I felt the need to spread the word on it. It swings pretty tight for sure, I wonder what the rest of the album sounds like. Thanks to M-Eighty for spreading the word and check out the track below via SoundCloud.
