J DILLA'S ALBUM THE DIARY TO BE RELEASED APRIL 

J Dilla heads will be excited to know that the highly anticipated 'The Diary' album is due to be released on 15th April. 

The Estate of James Yancey has revived J Dilla's longstanding company PayJay as a functioning imprint to release Dilla's long lost vocal album in conjunction with Mass Appeal Records.

Initially intended for release in 2002The Diary is the final batch of unissued material that Dilla had assembled for release during his lifetime, lending crucial insight into the producer's prowess and thought process in the period leading up to his break with the major label system and the extremely fertile period that followed (which encompassed the making of the canonical classics Ruff DraftJaylib, and Donuts). 

The Diary features vocal performances by J Dilla, Snoop DoggBilalKokaneFrank and DankNottz and Boogie, over production by Dilla,MadlibPete RockHi-tekNottzHouse ShoesSupa Dave WestBink! and Karriem Riggins. The album was announced today in an interview with Nas on Zane Lowe's show on Beats1 with the never-before-heard song "The Introduction."
