Unreleased J Dilla track The Throwaway by Yancey Boys featuring Frank Nitt

Boom bang! J Dilla catalogue curator Frank Nitt makes good on his threats to drop unreleased treasures from the Yancey Media Group’s collection of “lost scrolls.” The first scroll to be unrolled is this Yancey Boys track “The Throwaway” featuring Nitt himself on the raps alongside Illa J. Kicking off with a Jafaican intro ala Dave Chappelle in Half-Baked (“right by de beeeach”) the track quickly evolves into the best kind of throwback, with a soulful filtered loop and a tempo that Scoob & Scrap could dance to. Makes sense since Nitt dates the track tot he mid-90s Labcabin era–although it apparently came off a disc (or DAT) with no date labeled on it. Stream below and buy “The Throwaway” as a single on Amazon (including instrumental!) and look out for more scrolls to be unfurled in the near future.
