Damn Right I am Somebody: J Dilla - "F--- The Police" (J.Rocc re-work, 2012)
Meticulously chopping and re-pasting samples pulled from Rene Costy, Fred Wesley & The J.B.'s, and Jacques Delon, "Fuck The Police" came out @ a pivotal time during J Dilla's blossoming career... between his transition from Soulquarians producer to rapping emcee. Nearly 6 years after Dilla's untimely passing, J.Rocc released a re-work of "F--- The Police" earlier this afternoon, which ends up cleanly editing down the track's lyrical content; Candidly stating via Soundcloud, "Here's a snippet of a little something that I was working on. Played this out a few times and it's CRACKIN' !!"
While he adds that the full version of his "Police" (re-work) might never even see the light of day, J.Rocc is currently prepping the release of yet another edits collection: The Minimal Waves Tapes - Edits, Vol 1 & 2. His semi-recent mixed genre album, Some Cold Rock Stuf and it's companion EP, Mystery Tracks are now cataloged and available for purchases over @ Stones Throw. Just $24 for the pair in a CD/mp3 bundle pack! J.Rocc will most likely be lacing up Yasiin Bey & Talib Kweli's long-overdue second album, "Black Star Aretha" with proper DJ cuts.
