Yancey Music Group announced Dilla's posthumous album, Rebirth Of Detroit, earlier this year. This week, with its release on Tuesday (June 12), the record company offers fans a full album stream.
Chuck Inglish and Boldy James recorded a lot of the album with labelheads Ma Dukes and Jonathon Taylor in the sessions months ago, followed by contributions from various artists
"What I love about [Chuck Inglish] is that he's from the city of Detroit, he’s got the lineage of the city from the past but he's also been creative enough to carry it on in a positive way worldwide," said Taylor, co-executive producer of the project. "We're proud to have him on the Rebirth of Detroit for Ms. Yancey and it's a great day here."
Additional guests on the album include Guilty Simpson, Amp Fiddler, Monica Blair, Illa J, and Phat Kat, among others.
