Illa J "We Here"
It seems fitting, given that the late J Dilla was considered one of the foremost veterans of the Detroit hip-hop scene, that "We Here," the first single to drop from his little brother's Illa J's Yancey Boys album, is a tribute to the city itself. Laid over a previously unheard Dilla track, the cut features Illa J's soulful voice trading raps with Guilty Simpson, who stopped by to guest on the new album. The beats here have literally gone untouched for over a decade, and the presence of Dilla is strong here. Photo by iNickel.
