Welcome 2 Detroit, Donuts and The Shining are all prize pieces in J Dilla‘s extensive catalog, but there might have been another trophy in his cabinet had things panned out. The Diary is a solo rap album the late producer was working on in the early 2000s, which featured guest production from Madlib, Nottz, Pete Rock, Karriem Riggins and House Shoes amongst others (we can tell it was dope just from that lineup).
 
Now, thanks to Jay’s own Pay Jay Productions, the LP will thankfully see the light of day — and here’s the first single, “Anthem,” featuring Frank-N-Dank. Dilla handled the production himself for this one, and crafted a quirky, Middle Eastern-sounding beat which contains dashes of both traditional underground ruggedness and that early ’00s commercial rap gloss.
 
“Anthem” will be released on 12″ vinyl as a paired single with “Trucks” on April 15, with The Diary LP arriving later in Spring.

Greg Grease – “Forward”

 

 

If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
