    Not really, Gangstarr was DJ Premier and Guru, Jazzmatazz was Guru's solo project with guest musicians from various groups. Some Gang Starr tracks are, indeed, in similar vibe to first two Jazzmatazz albums, but bottom line it's not the same.

    You might want to check out British act Us3 as well, but then again it's much more of acid-jazz than anything else.

    Fair enough, I was just being vague with my categorisation of Gangstarr. Wil check us3 as well. Cheers

    Let me know if you like Us3, it's more "jazz" than "rap", but if you do, I know a whole bunch of groups in that vibe.

    Oh, ok - then check out Tab Two (it's a German group, very similar to Us3 and they've got English raps on it); Jazzanova (another German ensemble), 4Hero, Funky Porcini, Jazztronic

    These should keep you engaged for some time, holla at me if you need anymore
