Unreleased J Dilla CD Coming In June Mixed By Pete Rock

A new album from the late, great J Dilla is on the way. Entitled Jay Stay Paid, the collection will consist of twenty five unreleased Dilla cuts mixed and arranged by his idol, the legendary Pete Rock.

According to Maureen Yancey, Dilla’s mother and executive producer behind the set, Paid will include material from the beginning of Jay’s career, as well as beats he made towards the end of his life. Artists such as Black Thought of The Roots, MF DOOM, and M.O.P. will provide guest vocals on the mostly instrumental effort set for release on June 2nd via Nature Sounds.

It comes on the heels of Dillanthology, Volume 1, an eleven-cut compilation of some of Dilla’s standout productions, including Busta Rhymes’ “Show Me What You Got”, Common’s “The Light”, and De La Soul’s “Stakes Is High”, that will hit stores on March 31st through Rapster Records. – Devin Chanda

    Dude is the next Pac when it comes to unreleased music…

      i wont say all that cuz most of pacs posthumous releases have been shitty.

      • UARK83

        I agree. But how do you know this wont be shitty? Just cause the man’s name is stamped on it, doesn’t mean it will be good. There is something wrong about putting out material from a dead man…it’s his work and it should be up to him on the final word for what is released. Otherwise it just seems fake..

    I heard it already about a month and a half ago. My friend did the mixing for the project here in Los Angeles. It’s excellent, Dilla fans won’t be disappointed. Crazy beats!!!
