Kanye West’s Mix Of J. Dilla’s “The Anthem” To Appear On Dilla’s Vinly Release “The Middle Finger”

(AllHipHop News) Kanye West’s previously unreleased mix of the late great J.Dilla’s track “The Anthem,” will finally hit the masses.

The sing is set to be featured on Dilla’s upcoming vinyl release The Middle Finger, due for an October 5 unveiling via Rappcats.

Rolling Stone reports that although “The Anthem,” was previously released in April as a Dilla production on the album The Diary, the original version was actually crafted by Yeezy.

West has been very vocal about his love for Dilla’s music. In the Stone’s Throw documentary Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton he referenced the artist as a creative guide.

“We gotta make music and think, ‘If Dilla was alive, would he like this?'” admiringly states West in the documentary.

He then added,”the best respect that we can pay to great artists that have inspired us so much is to never sell out.”
