(AllHipHop News) World renowned turntablist DJ Jazzy Jeff is preparing to release his first independent album.
Ironically, his first indie release is also the final installment of his "Magnificent" series.
Jeff pulled together a crew of veterans for M3, which is accompanied by the lyricism of new hip-hop group The Trinity, which features Grammy and Oscar award-winning MC Rhymefest, Philadelphia MC Dayne Jordan and multitalented artist Uhmeer.
“For me, M3 represents freedom as an artist and in business,” said DJ Jazzy Jeff. “After all these years in the business, it’s liberating to finally be totally independent. Hopefully, I inspire others to take charge of
their own destiny," Jazzy Jeff told AllHipHop.com.
The final installment of M3 completes Jeff's Magnificent series, which he launched in 2002 with The Magnificent and 2007's The Return of the Magnificent.
In addition to The Trinity, M3 features guest appearances by artists in Jeff's PLAYLIST Network, including Daniel Crawford, Kaidi Tatham, Philadelphia collective Killiam Shakespeare, James Poyser, and Jeff Bradshaw.
M3 will be available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, and Bandcamp on May 8.
