J Dilla – “Trucks” | New Music


For those of you that have been waiting for the B-side to J Dilla‘s posthumous February offering, “The Anthem”, it is finally here. “Trucks” is an upbeat and self produced track taken from the late Detroit legend’s vault of unreleased music and is set to appear on his forthcoming posthumous album, The Diary, which features production from the likes of Madlib, Pete Rock, Nottz, House Shoes, Karriem Riggins and more.

“Both ‘Anthem’ and ‘Trucks’ were produced, and feature complete vocal performances, by Dilla,” Rappcats reveal. “The tracks come straight from multi-track masters found on 2-inch tape shortly after Dilla’s passing in 2006.

“These songs have been mixed by engineer Dave Cooley, who worked extensively with Dilla during his years in Los Angeles. Using Dilla’s original demo mixes as his guide, Cooley attempted to finalize Dilla’s vision for these tracks, while keeping all of the elements that Dilla had in place in his original demos present.”

The Diary drops later this year via Dilla’s PayJay Productions label. Until then, check out “Trucks” below.
