J. Dilla ft. Frank-N-Dank – Anthem

Monday, February 11th, 2013

Two new J. Dilla projects coming to fruition on the seventh anniversary of his passing. One on Pay Jay (Jay Dee’s official label) and one through Stones Throw.

“Anthem” and “Trucks” were two of the songs J Dilla recorded in late 2001 and early 2002 as he put the finishing touches on what was supposed to be an album featuring his raps over production by the likes of Madlib, Pete Rock, Nottz, House Shoes, Karriem Riggins and others. These two tracks, however, were produced by Dilla himself.

Here’s the story: It was 2002. Signed to a solo deal with MCA, whose roster at the time included Common and The Roots, J Dilla spearheaded a project for two of the most unlikely major label emcees: Frank N Dank. In retrospect it’s not hard to understand why the label shelved and eventually dropped the project.

Germany’s splash!-Mag talks to PBW:

We show artists twelve inches and talk about those records and the musical influence and significance they had or still have. We get to know how that particular record was recorded or what the artwork stands for. In our premier show, Stones Throw CEO Peanut Butter Wolf reveals several untold stories.

Or do you know that Madlib had to produce “Shades of Blue” twice, due to an unfortunate incident? Do you know the story behind the Jaylib record? Or how Guilty Simpson landed on Stones Throw?

MP3s don’t tell those stories and CDs are crap anyway, on that note: save the vinyl!
