During his performance at SXSW, Nas premiered an unreleased track he was featured on with J. Dilla over instrumentation made by legendary Stones Throw producer, Madlib. The track, titled “Sickness”, was announced to be releasing off of a new Dilla compilation titled The Diary, which planned to show more of Dilla’s rhyming skills outside of his widely known talents in production. Today, an official video for the Jay Dee’s single released via Mass Appeal. The set of visuals has a triply layout with psychedelic illustrations of both Dilla and Nas and colorful animations of both rapper’s lyrics over moving backgrounds. It’s very weird, but keeps viewers locked in for almost three minutes along with the music itself.
J. Dilla’s album “The Diary” is availably exclusively on iTunes.
