Yancey Boys "Quicksand (prod. J Dilla)" feat. Common & Dezi Paige
The Yancey Boys ( Illa J x Frank Nitt) had us hooked with their last track, “Fisherman,” but you’re likely to drown in the dopeness of their latest single, “Quicksand.” Just like the rest of the upcoming Yancey Boys album, Sunset Blvd, J Dilla is on the production, this time getting a verse from Common and a silky hook from Dezi Paige. Comprised of a batch of recently discovered Dilla beats, Sunset Blvd is set to drop later this fall via Delicious Vinyl. Says Frank Nitt of the project: “We’ve created an album that would make Dilla proud. But this isn’t a nostalgia trip: Dilla beats were so future-forward that they’re right on time in 2013 and we’ve assembled the best artists possible to represent that.” While we wait for Sunset Blvd to drop, you can cop the “Quicksand” single (with “Fisherman” on the B-side) via iTunes.
