J Dilla To Live On Through New Shining Album
Posted on June 24, 2006 by Jamie Slaughter
Despite J Dilla passed away on February 10th, but his memory and passion will live on for at least one more album, with the release of The Shining.
BillBoard.com has reported that the album will feature guest appearances from hip hop artists such as Busta Rhymes, Common, Pharoahe Monch and Madlib, among others all congregating to preserve his memory.
The album's executive producer will be the producer's friend and longtime collaborator Karriem Riggins.
"All the artists that contributed to this project Dilla considered family," says Riggins. "And when the world hears it, they will see that the love bleeds through the music."
The Shining is expected to be officially released on August 22, and if you respect J Dilla's career and love for the game, that same passion will be exemplified via this album.
