‘Motor City’: New J Dilla Compilation Announced (Audio)
A newly announced compilation album of the work of famed, departed hip hop producer J Dilla has been announced by Dilla’s mother Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey. Motor City will contain previously unreleased instrumentals by the artist, along with other special features.
Those special features include a handwritten message from Ma Dukes to Dilla, and a download code for a remix of the album by J Rocc. If for some reason you’re still not convinced, they’ve released a track from that very remix and you can listen to it below:
Not bad, not bad! Motor City proper is coming out on April 21st, and the special CD and vinyl editions will come in special limited edition envelopes (presumably similar to the one pictured on Soundcloud above). If you’re ready to pre-order, or just get some more information on the album (and the rest of the J Dilla catalogue), you can do so at the producer’s posthumous online store right here.
