Stream Volume 2 Of J Dilla's Posthumous 'King Of Beats' Instrumental Tape
It’s been a bittersweet month for J Dilla fans across the globe. On the 7th, we celebrated what would have been the legend’ 42nd birthday. Three days later, we memorialized ten years with his parting opus, Donuts. Then just last week, it was revealed that the estate, in partnership with Mass Appeal Records, would release his long-lost vocal album, The Diary, which is currently slated for an April 15th drop.
Today, however, we have on oddly under-the-radar release to share with you, as The King Of Beats Vol. 2: Lost Scrolls surfaced on Spotify and iTunes unbeknownst to us or damn-near anyone in the world. According to iTunes, the album was released last Friday, February 19th via Yancey Media Group/Official Ma Dukes, yet the word was mum, likely for the purpose of bringing attention to The Diary. But for those, like myself, who prefer to hear Dilla’s chop untouched, this here’s the one for you, comprised 18 rare instrumentals, some the devout will find familiar, others that will certainly be new to you. Stream the album in its entirety below and once you’ve had your fill, take it home with you by picking up a copy on iTunes today.
