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!
