The Yancey Boys (J Dilla & his younger sibling Illa J) hit us with a new cut which I'm guessing is a release off of the upcoming The Lost Scrolls releases. Vol. 1 has dropped and is available on iTunes. Ma Dukes (J Dilla's Mother) is going to continue to release music that was unreleased and re-discovered and given to her.
Looks like we're keeping things in the HW&W family today. Elaquent just dropped "The Official", an instrumental tribute to the Jaylib (J Dilla and Madlib) track of the same name off Champion Sound. If you haven't taken in Champion Sound before, I definitely recommend giving it a listen. Here's the breakdown: it's a 20-track album by J Dilla and Madlib where they take turns rapping over each other's production. Sounds pretty appealing, right? Along with "The Official", my personal favourites off the album would have to be "McNasty Filth" (featuring Frank-N-Dank) and "Raw Shit" (featuring Talib Kweli). Stream Elaquent's version of "The Official" below.
Happy Birthday J Dilla and Rest In Peace James Dewitt Yancey.
