The Hip-Hop world lost something profound when the legendary producer and member of Slum Village passed away in 2006. Illa J, YoungÂ RJ and T3, who compose Slum Village as we know it today, release this song over a previously unreleased J. Dilla track to pay tribute to the man who would be turning 40 today, if he hadn't been taken from us all too soon.
And be sure to check out their latest mixtape (a la last year),Â Dirty Slums 2.Â
Also, this track not only brings us a previously unheard J. Dilla beat, but some never-before-heard vocals as well. Happy Birthday, Jay Dee.
Put my snipes on the target, Wes, Wes
Leave this girl alone, rest rest
I wanna be in her world, Jess, Jess
'Cause every she put it down she be the best
