Illa J "R U Listenin' feat. Guilty Simpson"
Produced by his older brother and industry go-to beat man, the late James Yancey (known to everyone outside the fam as J Dilla), Illa J’s first official offerings incorporates some of his big bro’s last. Preceding the November 4 release of his debut album, Yancey Boys, L.A.-based Illa J (John Yancey) puts forth his debut single in collaboration with fellow Detroit native Guilty Simpson. With his casually melodic delivery, Illa “shakes haterz like dice.” Likewise, Guilty Simpson steps in to bear witness to Illa J’s fresh talent, while showing a little love to the 313.
