Better known as the dance production team Masters at Work, Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez and Lil' Louis Vega became NuYorican Soul for an EP in 1996 and an eponymous full-length one year later. Much like Guru's jazz-rap fusion project Jazzmatazz, NuYorican Soul united jazz legends with newer talents in a celebration of jazz, R&B, and dance, with most tracks including Latin styles befitting the heritage of Gonzalez and Vega.
