Since his brother’s passing in 2006, Illa J has made it his mission statement to uphold the legacy of J Dilla, one of the greatest composers in hip-hop’s history. The Yancey Brothers win the opportunity for a conceptual reconciliation on this heavily funky new cut, “Throwaway,” featuring Frank Nitt (of Frank-N-Dank), who now holds the title of chief curator of Dilla’s catalog. Originating from the mid ’90s, this track can be streamed below and purchased on Amazon from December 18.

Brooklynite emcee/producer Gliffics goes in over the Dilla produced “Thought U Wuz Nice” instrumental used back in ’99 by the one they call Phife. Drawing inspiration from his own burgundy colored walls, this video is the culmination of good piff mixed with the right pantone. Burgundy walls…don’t you wish you had some? If you like what you hear, keep an eye out for a new video series from Gliffics, presented by LiveMixtapes.com. Hit the jump to zone out and peep the rest of the story.


Burgundy walls are literally the color of the walls in my living room. In fact the entire video was shot in my home in my living room and then we occupied another room and painted it burgundy just for the shoot. The idea came to me back in ’09, I was smoking some fine chronic and I came across the instrumental… – Gliffics

J. Dilla’s legacy won’t die. Hip-Hop has too much respect for the pioneer to allow that to happen, and he’s far too important to Detroit for them to LET Hip-Hop forget about him. It’s with this thinking that Dilla is never truly gone, only physically; his music lives on and his legacy is carried on through the artists that respected him for the icon he was. Hit the jump to read the review for the late J Dilla’s Rebirth of Detroit in its entirety.



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.
