Its no secret by now that the career of the 7-Mile representative known as Ron.D, is accumulating more and more to being one of the hottest indie Hip-Hop artist to come out of the scene in recent memory. From dropping the two mixtapes (Now Or Neva & U Cant Deny Me) that has given him notoriety, both laced with head nodding bangers and a honest look in the MC’s life, to putting out quality video after quality video, this is the true model of how an indie Hip-Hop artist in 2013 should be grinding and earning their stripes.

For years music listeners worldwide have been waiting for new material from the late Detroit staple Dill Withers aka J. Dilla, and the day has finally come to bask in the Connant Garden sound that created a whole new branch of Hip-Hop not too long ago! June 12th, 2012 marks the official release date of the new JayDee album ‘The Rebirth Of Detroit’ and the first video for the project ‘Dillatroit’ costars SupaEmcee of Big Proof’s Iron Fist Records, fellow Almighty Dreadnaught and Detroit Hip-Hop staple Guilty Simpson, and platinum producer Nick Speed. Sit back and watch these three pay homage to the G.O.A.T.
Just days before the news hit the media of J. Dilla’s stash of vinyl, tapes, notebooks and etc. was found and given to his mother Maureen Yancey, she sat down with www.valid313.com and dropped some knowledge on artistic appreciation over seas opposed to in the states, and shared bits and pieces of J Dilla’s musical influence, and much more! (Apologies for the poor lighting)
Currently Ms. Yancey is working hard everyday with her close associates Jonathon Taylor and DJ Butter on the new J. Dilla album ‘The Rebirth of Detroit’ set to drop June 12th! The album is a strictly Detroit artist only on unreleased exclusive J. Dillas beats. The guest appearances include Detroit legends like Esham and AWOL all the way to some of the hottest names attached to Detroit Hip-Hop such as Guilty Simpson, SupaEmcee, Ronnie Euro (formerly known as Phat Kat) Danny Brown, Fat Ray, Moe Dirdee, Nick Speed, Seven The General, 5ELA, Chuck Inglish of The Cool Kids and many more! With new music, merchandise, and the J. Foundation working hard to keep music alive in communities where public school continue to cut musical programs, be sure to hit up www.officialjdilla.com for all things J. Dilla! And a special thank you goes out to Maureen Yancey, we love you Ma’ Dukes!
