Throughout the year, the spirit of James “Dilla” Yancy has been alive and well amongst the hip-hop community and in his music. Not long after his final vocal album The Diary was released, Nas and Mass Appeal have revived Jay Dee’s mind and spirit once again for the latest visual for “The Sickness.”
Nas reps his clothing brand HSTRY heavy as Dilla does what he does best. The late Detroit producer recreates the beat with his fingers as inhales some fine herb while the Madlib produced beat bumps hard throughout the multicolored visual directed by Ruffmercy. The Diary also features Snoop Dogg, Bilal, Kokane, and more. Cop your copy of The Diary.
Watch the visual for “The Sickness” below.
