A new (as in, 2003) Dilla track, part of an album recorded for MCA that’s bound to be released as soon as Stones Throw handle the legal issues. It features J Dilla rapping, while the production part was handled by an array of talented producers, such as Madlib, Pete Rock and Kanye West. I wasn’t that sure about J Dilla as MC.. until I heard Ruff Draft, originally released in 2003 but only on vinyl, and re-issued this year by Stones Throw. But that demands a review by itself, much to be said about Ruff Draft.

Diamonds mp3

Edit: I can’t link to the mp3 anymore sorry! Stones Throw very politely asked me to remove the link.

Also Jay Love Japan seems to not be authorized by J Dilla’s estate, and Stones Throw have nothing to do with its release.

For another Dilla production made a year after Diamonds, Guilty Simpson’s Man’s World, check out Stones Throw Podcast.

  1. Whoa! That song is sick…where did you get your hands on that? Has the MCA album leaked, or is Stones Throw dishing tracks out to bloggers? I need more, dammit!!!!

  2. Stones Throw getting in touch with me? Haa, I wish. I don’t know if they’re in a hurry to release this either, they have the Jay Love Japan coming out in June so..
