Video: Common on J Dilla (Embedded Outtake)

J Dilla’s birthday (and the anniversary of his death) is right around the corner and CurrentTV just put up this outtake from Common’s Embedded episode of Rashid speaking on his old friend the late J Dilla.

“The dichotomy of Jay Dee was like, he would make beats for the most artistic dudes, the most underground hip hop dudes… but he was rolling in his Range Rover, he had a nice chain, he’d go to the strip clubs sometimes, so he had the dynamics of everything…”

    Album pushbacks, leaks, switching genres; none of this concerns Lil Wayne fans. Apparently, the rap superstar is set to sell between 140,000 and 150,000 copies of his new rock-influenced album Rebirth.

    Industry insiders hitsdailydouble.com came up with the impressive projections after tabulating Weezy’s one-day sales figures.

    While the numbers aren’t as high as the New Orleans MC’s awe-inspiring one million tally from 2008 Grammy-award-winning Carter III album, the estimation is still pretty impressive considering the setbacks that Rebirth has faced.

    Along with being plagued with countless pushbacks, the disc leaked to the net months before its official release. Not to mention the fact that Wayne is set to do a one-year jail bid starting on February 9, which will stop his ability to promote the new album.
