Motor City is a new collection of unheard instrumentals from J.Dilla handpicked by his mother Maureen Yancey who is simply known as Ma Dukes. The 19-song tracklisting is packaged as a letter from her to Dilla with a handwritten message in a mailing envelope. J Rocc of the Beat Junkies was Dilla’s friend and he has a mix of the album included as a download code. Blend #2 has Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes rapping over a Dilla beat in a reworking of Pharrell’s “For The Nasty.” Motor City will be released April 28th and can be pre-ordered on Friday.
