Having not dropped an album since 2000, the duo of Capone-N-Noreaga set out to take the game over in 2009.  I was privileged to listen to their album “Channel 10” and write up a review.  I am not going to give the entire album a letter grade, nor number ranking.  Instead, I am going to give you all a run-through of each track and let you know my personal opinion.  Following the tracks I will discuss some strengths and weaknesses of the album.  Enjoy!

Jay Dilla – Jay Stay Paid (Album) [Coming June 2nd 2009]

No Comments »

A new album by J. Dilla is coming this summer on Nature Sounds and is set for a June 2nd 2009 release date.  The album will be executive produced by Dilla’s mom, Ms. Yancey a.k.a. “Ma Dukes!”  Read below for additional information that was shot my way!


By now most everyone is familiar with the story of musical legend J Dilla. The quiet, prolific producer collaborated with everyone from Eryka Badu to Common to Janet Jackson to Prince. Dilla was just beginning to capitalize on his cult status when he sadly passed at age 32 due to Lupus-related complications. Jay Stay Paid is a 25 track collection of unreleased Dilla beats mixed and arranged by Pete Rock. While mostly instrumental, “J$P” also offers a few guests vocals from artists that Dilla worked with or admired including Black Thought of The Roots, MF DOOM, and M.O.P.
