Listen To The Instrumental Version Of J. Dilla’s “The Diary”

A new instrumental version of J. Dilla’s The Diary has been released.

The music is taken from the legendary producer’s recently unearthed solo 2002 album, The Diary.

This release was supposed to be Dilla’s first solo album, but he passed away from Lupus in 2006, before he had a chance to put the album out.

His favorite producers – Madlib, Nottz, Hi-Tek, Pete Rock, House Shoes and Karriem Riggins – banded together to put out an album Dilla would have been proud of.
