Pay Jay To Release J Dilla's "The Diary" LP This Spring

J Dilla's Pay Day imprint will release a posthumous, lost vocal album from the late musician.

J Dilla's imprint Pay Day is set to release a lost vocal album titled The Diary, which was completed in the early 2000s.

According to Pitchfork, the album sees the late musician rapping over production from Madlib, Pete Rock, Nottz, House Shoes, Karriem Riggins and more. The project is currently without a release date, but is due this Spring.

In anticipation of the album's release, Pay Day will release "Anthem" b/w "Trucks" on 12-inch vinyl on April 15th. Both previously unreleased tracks feature production from Dilla himself. Multi-track masters were found shortly after his death in 2006, and were finished by his collaborator Dave Cooley for this release.

Last November, Yancey Media Group announced that the imprint would release The Lost Scrolls, as well as the previously bootlegged Frank N Dank album 48 Hours, produced entirely by Dilla.
