Illa J – We Here (prod. J Dilla)

blame it on Shake August 25, 2008

Nothing like some unreleased Dilla beats to keep the day on the up and up. The first joint off the upcoming Yancey Boys LP. Illa J gets down over his older brother’s instrumental (Rest in Peace Dilla Dog!).

We Here is a celebration of waking up every day. Why not live out your dreams, why not try? Of the lyric ‘Let’s go crazy/ You saw Purple Rain’ Illa J explains: “It’s like Prince asking ‘Are we gonna let the elevator break us down?’ Naw, let’s go all out! One of the things I learned from my brother is that you don’t get that much time, so make the most of it. That’s why I’ve decided to dedicate my life to doing what I love: music. Illa J
