This is a very dope and well executed mixtape. Lupe's vocals laid over some smooth Jazz tunes.

Palm of Ice explains the project: “Kind of Lu” is a project that came about because of the flawless synergy Lupe has with Jazz music.

After doing a couple remixes of Lupe tracks using Jazz samples, and hearing the Dr. Cornel West interview, this project had to be done. To me, Lupe’s music is very representative of Jazz music in that he brings something new to the table, unafraid of being himself while doing it.

The name was inspired by Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue” which is regarded as the defacto album that changed the face of Jazz music forever. If you’re a fan of Hip Hop or Jazz music, please check this out and I hope you enjoy it.
