The late, great J Dilla is widely regarded as one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time. Since his death in 2006, Dillaâ€™s mother Maureen â€œMa Dukesâ€ Yancey has worked tirelessly to further her sonâ€™s legacy, and her latest effort is the new project Motor City. Inspired by Dillaâ€™s beloved hometown, Motor City is a collection of rare and unreleased Jay Dee instrumentals, hand-selected and sequenced by Ma Dukes. Conceived as a â€œletterâ€ to her son, Motor City is packaged in a limited-edition mailing envelope, complete with a handwritten message from Ma Dukes to J Dilla inside. This 19-track collection will be available at physical and digital outlets worldwide on April 21st, 2017.
All formats include an exclusive mix of Motor City by Dillaâ€™s close friend J Rocc, a world-renown DJ and founder of theBeat Junkies. With the release date approaching, we’re debuting another exclusive Motor City blend by J Rocc. Available now on Soundcloud, this blend features rare vocals from Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes.
