Robert Glasper and Illa J Take Flight Together in “They Can’t Hold Me Down”

Apple Music brings us another premiere after it’s incredible Chance the RapperNo Problems” featuring 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne last week. This time around is a J Dilla inspired track from Robert Glasper and Illa J for “They Can’t Hold Me Down”.

Robert Glasper put his magic touch on the production but felt like it was so close to what he envisioned Dilla doing that he had to get Illa J on it to make it official. The two hooked up both feeling like it was more than worth a shot, the outcome? Out of this world. Guess that’s why the sampled “can’t hold me down” loop is so fitting. Beautiful, chill vibe that has true hip hop written all over it.
