A collection of instrumentals from the late, beloved producer J Dilla will be hitting stores next month.
The disc, titled Dillanthology, Volume 1, will include 11 standout cuts Jay Dee put together for such rap acts as De La Soul (“Stakes Is High”), Busta Rhymes (“Show Me What You Got”), The Pharcyde (“Runnin’”), Common (“The Light”) The Roots (“Dynamite”) and Erykah Badu (“Didn’t Cha Know”), among others.
The Detroit-based producer died from a cardiac arrest due to complications from lupus on Feb. 10, 2006. Along with his die hard fan-base, Dilla is remembered by his two daughters, his mother Maureen Yancey (aka Ma Dukes), and younger brother Illa J – who released a CD of his own last year called Yancey Boys – produced entirely by Dilla.
Dillanthology, Volume 1 will hit stores via Rapster Records on March 31st. – Elan Mancini
