TURN IT UP, A [little] LOUDER: J Dilla - "Jay-Dee's Revenge" (Danny Brown Donut)
Ma Dukes is prepping to release her son J Dilla's long-awaited third posthumous album, Rebirth of Detroit this coming June 12th. Following Dilla's sudden 2006 passing, 2 other incomplete records were eventually finished and released: The Shining (2006) and Jay Stay Paid (2009) at the hands of producers, Karriem Riggins/Pete Rock. Throughout his short career, J Dilla supposedly recorded troves of music that only his inner circle had ever heard; But now that his estate has gained back the rights to most of these "lost recordings," I'm hoping to see a few more proper releases like this fairly soon! Danny Brown, Guilty Simpson, Amp Fiddler, Illa J, Frank Nitt, Chuck Inglish, and Phat Kat are set to appear over 25 unreleased J Dilla donuts on Rebirth of Detroit. In preparation for the album, "Jay-Dee's Revenge" & "Birthright" will be issued as a limited edition 10-12" single on May 25th. So, don't forget: Rebirth of Detroit... June 12th (Ruff Draft Records).
