J DILLA - Rebirth Of Detroit

Label: Ruff Draft US
18 June, 2012  |  CD  |  RDR 002
Style: Hip-Hop
Total Tracks: 021

Since the sad passing of legendary Detroit hip-hop producer J Dilla in 2006, there have been plenty of posthumous releases. Even so, there's something surprisingly exciting about The Rebirth of Detroit. Featuring 21 previously unheard tracks recorded solely with Detroit-based rappers and singers (Danny Brown, Chuck Inglish, Boldy James etc) during the final years of Dilla's life, it's a formidable collection even by his own high standards. Flitting between tough rap cuts, luscious hip-hop instrumentals and glorious hip-hop soul (see the wonderful "Let's Pray Together"), there's little in the way of filler. Dilla was, and remains, a producer ahead of his time.
