For all of you who’ve been issued a late pass for not copping J Dilla‘s posthumous LP Rebirth of Detroit when it dropped yesterday, you’ve now been given the opportunity to see what you’re missing via this full-length album stream. You’re lucky — not everyone is this forgiving.
The album is the first release from Ruff Draft Records, the label established by Dilla’s mother Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey dedicated to keeping the venerable producer’s legacy alive by releasing his previously unheard music.
“I named this project The Rebirth of Detroit because there will be no more outsourcing of Detroit soul and culture as in the recent past,” Ruff Draft’s Jonathon Taylor said of the album, according to Canadian site Exclaim.
The project features appearances from Danny Brown, Chuck Inglish, The Cool Kids, Guilty Simpson and more. Stream the album below, then head over to iTunes to purchase the album and officially remove yourself from the late show.
