The Dilla discography is never-ending, it seems. The story behind this goes, Jay Dee was in the process of doing a solo album with contributions from Madlib, Pete Rock, Nottz, House Shoes and Karriem Riggins among many others. Now, fans can cop this song – as well as another, “Trucks” – on vinyl right here.

I laced ya’ll with the Mos Def snippets yesterday, now here’s 30 second clips of the upcoming J Dilla album. I’ve given this three listens so far and it’s safe to say we’re in for a treat. Some of these beats are just nutty (as expected)! Definitely making a purchase next week (June 2nd). Hit the jump for the artwork and tracklist to follow along…

There ain’t many artists who were closer to James Yancey a.k.a. Jay Dee than Frank Nitt and Dankery Harv, better known as Frank n Dank. At their latest Europe tour they talked with us about the impact the financial crisis had on Detroit City, their various setbacks in the music industry and their first tentative steps in the Hip-Hop-scene. The gorgeous anecdotes about the legendary Detroit Hip-Hop Shop, where all artists gathered around the figure heads Proof and J. Dilla mark the highlight of the interview.
