Video: J. Dilla ft. Nas – The Sickness

Directed by Ruffmercy, PayJay and Mass Appeal Records have created a video for J. Dilla’s “The Sickness“, featuring clips of Dilla and Nas spitting bars over the head-nodding Madlib beat. Most likely his last project that will be released, Dilla’s The Diary is available now in iTunes.

Track: J. Dilla ft. Nas – The Sickness (prod. by Madlib)

Initially intended for release in 2002, J Dilla’s long lost vocal album, The Diary, will be released tomorrow on iTunes. Calling on the auspicious production talents of Madlib, Pete Rock, Hi-Tek, Nottz, and House Shoes, among others, the release also carries vocal spots from Snoop Dogg, Bilal, Kokane, and more.

Album: Nas + J Dilla – Cut From The Same Cloth (Mixed By Ryan Stone)

Because, Hip Hop.. A wonderful creation by Ryan Stone of Hip Hop Speakeasy, fans of classic hip hop music, old and new can now get an idea of what a pairing of legends.  Regarded as the best by many in their respective fields, Nasir Jones and the late J Dilla almost sound as the songs on this short release were an actual collaboration instead of a creative venture of Ryan Stone.
