10. Guru featuring Junior Reid and Prodigal Sunn โ€œMashinโ€™ Up the Earthโ€
Guru- Jazzmatazz-Streetsoul

Guru and Junior Reid have a song together? Yepโ€”โ€œMashinโ€™ Up the Earthโ€ was was on Guruโ€™s somewhat forgotten third album as Jazzmatazz from 2000, Jazzmatazz StreetSoul, so weโ€™ll forgive you if you missed it. The track features J.R. interpolating Michael Jacksonโ€™s โ€œEarthsongโ€ while Guru and Sunz of Manโ€™s Prodigal Sunn commiserate over tragedy, and a stark beat with just a touch of cornet.
