but if it isn't, there's a lot to explore in terms of Jazz rap!
if you're looking for the style on "For Free?", sadly i don't know much with the whole live band beat poetry feel besides, well, beat poetry
TPAB wouldn't really be considered overtly jazz-hip hop fusion, given how much more of the album is soul and funk oriented, but if that's the element you identified with i'd be glad to toss a few recommendations
jazz samples are a huge part of hip hop, almost as much soul and funk samples. For jazzy stuff i'd point you more in the direction of 90's "conscious" rap, a lot of albums from various musicians involved in the native tongues collective, and of course madlib does a lot of jazz related stuff (shades of blue is great, it's a beat tape made entirely out of samples from blue note records) and i think has a few releases with a jazz band.
jazz rap isn't just confined to those scenes and musicians though! jazz samples and influence are fairly evergreen in hip hop, and the more you get into hip hop as a whole the more cool stuff you'll find.

thanks for the info, my dude. if you don't mind throwing in some funk-oriented hip hop, that would be great! I really did enjoy those parts in TPAB that leaned more towards funk, such as the beginning of Hood Politics and King Kunta, of course.
In terms of Jazzy, "U" is probably the best example in the album of what I am looking for.
