Listen as We Open ‘The Diary’ of J Dilla

Some artists will always live on through their music, that feeling you get hearing production they created or their voice, style and delivery gives you the same classic moment no matter how many times you press play.

J Dilla has been and will always be one of those artists who fall into the category. Most of the music we’ve heard over the years were features or beats that we feel lucky to ever have heard considering who knows if he would’ve released them. But, the latest project is one that is appropriately named ‘The Diary’ giving us a different Dilla. The writing version of the Detroit icon, the rapping focused version and its greatness is joined by others like Snoop, Nas, young Kanye and many more!
