Illa J Album Gets Title, Tracklisting
In tribute to his late older brother, Detroit hip-hop legend J Dilla, up-and-coming producer John "Illa J" Yancey has dubbed his forthcoming debut album Yancey Boys.
As previously noted, the album features the younger Yancey singing over beats made by his older brother that cover the years between 1995 and 1998 and were never used. After a recent move from Detroit to Los Angeles, Illa set to work recording the release, which he named after the studio in which it was made. The album is set to drop in November.
