New J. Dilla Coming

written by: on April 5, 2011

The late J. Dilla’s mother, Mah Dukes, announced the release of a record of new material from the producer called The Rebirth of Detroit. Since his passing in 2006 and the release of his two posthumous records (The Shining and Jay Stay Paid), Dilla has been elevated to iconic status. This new record will be a tribute both to the artist himself and also to the city he called home. Guesting on the record will be artists from Detroit, who are dedicated to rebuilding Detroit and upholding it as a bastion for artistic innovation.

Watch the video below to see Mah Dukes talk about her son and explain The Rebirth of Detroit. It is so touching and is sure to be a great release.
