by Winston "Stone" Ford
Jay Stay Paid Album Sampler Mix (compiled by the Beat Junkies)
People laughed when I said that J Dilla is the boho Tupac, but the fact that there is something being released every month it seems bearing the J Dilla name proves my point. Even though I cringe at a new Dilla release (I’m sorry, this is a marketing tool more tha anything) I always find myself blogging about the latest release. Why? Cause let’s face it, Dilla is a genius and is music is just to damn good.
Jay Stay Paid has the blessing of Ma Dukes and is produced by Jay’s mentor Pete Rock. The album also features Black Thought, MF DOOM, and Jay’s brother Illa J.
