J Dilla’s “Dillanthology1”


On March 31, !K7 imprint Rapster Records will kick off Dillanthology, a series of compilations dedicated to the late James “J Dilla” Yancey’s work. The first installment will focus on his production for other artists, and include classic singles such as the Pharcyde’s “Runnin'” and De La Soul’s “Stakes Is High.”

“In his brief 32 years J-Dilla, otherwise known as Jay-Dee created and shaped a new sound for Hip-Hop that inspired beat smiths, MCs and music lovers around the globe,” reads the press material for the album. “In this first Volume of the Dillanthology tribute series we focus on some of his classic productions for artists including Busta Rhymes, The Pharcyde, Erykah Badu, Slum Village, The Roots and Common.

“This is the first in a series of planned albums focusing on different aspects of the illustrious producer’s career and should be seen as a tribute to his memory and spirit. In the coming months, look for separate volumes for both his remix work and production on his own projects.”
