James Dewitt "J. Dilla" Yancey made music for any occasion, and fans are blessed with new audible treats in his wake. What's a better time to debut an unreleased track than what would have been his 40th birthday?
Titled "Yes Yes," the song comes courtesy of Slum Village --now comprised of Illa J, Young RJ, and T3 -- who are currently working on a new album. In commemorating Dilla and "Dilla Day Detroit," listeners are treated to the smooth sounds of some potent Jay Dee production and a verse to boot. The collective of MCs channel that classic SV feel in respect to their fallen brethren, which adds a great touch.
Slum Village's forthcoming LP is slated for a spring release, and is said to feature production by J. Dilla, Black Milk, and Young RJ. Rest in power Jay Dee and Baatin.
Tune into "Yes Yes" below.
