J-Dilla – Anthem / Trucks
Just in time for this year’s Record Store Day (04/20/13) is the first official vinyl release from the imprint of The Dilla Estate (PayJay 2013). The pressing includes two tracks, “Anthem” and “Trucks,” featuring J-Dilla production with vocals from Detroit natives, Frank N Dank. Dilla heads should also note that this announces the upcoming release of the long lost vocal album, The Diary, which will feature vocal performances recorded in the early 2000s over production by Jay Dee peers Madlib, Pete Rock and Nottz among others. Fans can grab their own copy ($12.50) of this first single with artwork by Mason London and Jeff Jank from the homies over at Turntable Lab. Collector’s item? All signs point to yes.
