Pay Jay: ft. J Dilla & Frank N Dank

Well it is an open secret that I am not a fan of most of the latest J Dilla releases because a lot of stuff didn't have the quality as it usually had. Also the latest sales of part of his collection is questionable from my personal point of view.

Nevertheless exceptions prove the rule so I like to give you a fair warning of something quite dope. I am talking about the two tracker “Anthem” bw “Trucks”. Both tracks got recorded in late 2001 / early 2002 to be part of an album that features Dilla Rap over beats by Madlib, Pete Rock, Nottz and others. These two tracks, were produced by Jaydee himself.

Here are some information provided by Pay Jay:
- found on 2-inch tape shortly after Dilla’s passing in 2006
- mixed by engineer Dave Cooley from Los Angeles
- Cooley attempted to finalize Dilla’s vision for these tracks, while keeping all of the elements that Dilla had in place in his original demos presents
- Trucks (demo mix) features an alternate version of Dilla’s vocals and a third verse not found on Dilla’s final sessions

A1: Anthem ft. Frank N Dank
A2: Anthem (Instrumental)
A3: Anthem (A Cappella)
B1: Trucks
B2: Trucks (Instrumental)
B3: Trucks (Dilla’s Original Mix)

This limited edition 12" gets pressed on clear vinyl and comes in a printed sleeve & plastic outer sleeve.
PRE-ORDER - expected shipping date is the 15th of April
