Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em" is a 6-track EP featuring instrumentals by Spekulation, composed entirely of samples from The Jason Parker Quartet's upcoming album, Five Leaves Left: A Tribute to Nick Drake. These instrumentals are paired with classic lyrics by Jay-Z to form something altogether new, all the while paying homage to the traditions that come before.
