Here it is, your first taste of the upcoming “Lost Scrolls” release from J Dilla. The “Lost Scrolls” will be all unreleased Dilla material and will come of somewhat of a surprise to more than a few. Not due to the lavish production work – the beats are prime, vintage Dilla start to finish. What will make “Lost Scrolls” unique is Dilla on the mic. This special 10” release of material from “Lost Scrolls” finds Dilla at home on the verbals just as he was always at home working an MPC. The projected is being assembled by long time friend and confident Frank Nitt from Frank N Dank who’s put painstaking attention into maintaining Dilla’s vision and energy through- out. This vinyl offering features “DeWitt To Do It” (DeWitt being Dilla’s middle name) as well as the return of the Yancey Boys on “The Throwaway” where Dilla’s brother Illa J trades verses with Nitt over a vintage Dilla beat. Pick it up now in time for this year’s Dilla Day, a celebration of the life and music for the great J Dilla and you too will say “J Dilla Changed My Life.”
Following the success of 2012’s posthumous Rebirth of Detroit CD, the official estate of J Dilla is proud to present Rebirth of Detroit Instrumentals. The new album distills Rebirth of Detroit’s 21 tracks to a lean 12 beats, never before pressed to vinyl, spanning Dilla’s career from Slum Village to Donuts. Containing only carefully sequenced, cherry-picked tracks that span over a decade of work, Rebirth of Detroit Instrumentals serves both as a comprehensive overview of Dilla’s style and as a testament to its profound influence on contemporary producers. The double LP, packaged with entirely new artwork, offers a rare insight into the mind of an artist who has come to define not only Motor City rap but the entirety of hip-hop from the 90’s to today.
