Yancey Boys Release J Dilla Produced Single “Quicksand” Feat. Common & Dezi Paige

(AllHipHop News) John “Illa J” Yancey and Frank Nitt, collectively known as the Yancey Boys, are planning to release a new LP titled Sunset Blvd, but what makes this album special is that all the production on the project will be covered by Illa J’s legendary brother J Dilla.

The beats for Sunset Blvd are taken from Lost Scrolls, a collection of Dilla’s records and tapes discovered by a record store owner after his death. The Yancey Boys recruited T3 of Slum Village, Posdnuos of De La Soul, and SlimKid3 of The Pharcyde for the project. The first single “Quicksand” features Common and Dezi Paige.
