News

By: Camille Augustin / June 20, 2014

J Dilla’s sound lives on with the first track off the Detroit native’s posthumous album The King of Beats titled “Filth.” The uptempo melody features Dilla’s clever wordplay over a boom-bap beat.

The box set, which will be released by his mother, consists of 40 unreleased songs from the late producer. Never-before-seen photographs and interviews of Dilla will also accompany the highly-anticipated body of work.

The King of Beats will be released Aug. 26, but for now press play on the infectious tune below.
