blame it on Meka March 6, 2017

Following homages from KXNG Crooked, MF DOOM, Thelonius Martin, Cookin’ Soul and even us here at The DopeHouse throughout the month of February, the family of J Dilla will continue to preserve the legacy of the fallen artist with a new compilation.

Titled Motor City, the project is inspired by Dilla’s hometown of Detroit, MI and is a collection of rare and unreleased Jay Dee instrumentals, all chosen and sequenced by Ma Dukes. The project will arrive April 21st.

J Rocc, founder of The Beat Junkies and the tour DJ for Madlib and Dilla’s group Jaylib, also concocted a special blend for the project, which can be heard below. Pre-orders for the CD, vinyl and deluxe edition are available now.
