    Houseshoes gave them the beats. Probably some throwaway shit Dilla had on some tapes. Thank Jonathan Taylor for putting this garbage out. I don't even think dillas mom listened to the cd.

  • TroyC

    got it and disappointed...... Dilla was the best to Ever do it! I much rather gave my $15 bucks directly to Ma Dukes, cuz this album comes nowhere close to how Dilla deserves to be repped. Who was in charge of putting this shit together? and also fuck gay ass Houseshoes what does he have to do with this anyway? he just spins dilla records so he can keep a few bucks in his pocket. He wouldn't even have a dj set unless he played Dilla tracks all night. sorry had to express the frustration... just wish it was a better project. All my Chi town and NY niggas will Love Dilla forever! LONG LIVE THE KING OF BEATS.

  • datdereswag

    niggas hatin' on Dilla. smh. I can't believe what I'm reading here. People want Royce, Eminem, Big Sean on this album? are you serious? These fools are not going to get featured for free. And this is Ma Dukes and Dilla's closest friends who made this album. None of them have the money to draw big names in this money-hungry industry. Niggas like Busta and Royce may pay their respect and show love to Dilla on interviews but at the end of the day, they wont sell themselves below the price no matter what. Apart from that, these underground cats on the album are nice. Not sure why you people are hating. Dope beats, dope lyrics, overall a dope album. Stop Hating. R.I.P. Dilla dawg

    • Schizo Da Maddcap

      ...oh yeah on NY's Finest, Pete Rock used only NEW YORK ARTISTS STUPID, GO LISTEN TO IT!!!btw...datdereswag...thanx for setting the record straight man...u are the only sane voice thus far.

    • Schizo Da Maddcap

      Although I agree with the point that there should have been some big names on this joint, I HIGHLY agree with you on the fact that "None of them (artists) on this album have the money to draw big names in this money-hungry industry". I truly agree with "Niggas like Busta and Royce may pay their respect and show love to Dilla on interviews but at the end of the day, they wont sell themselves below the price no matter what...", hell there is NO Common, Bilal, Madlib, Doom, Pete Rock or even some of SV (save for Illa J) on here. All them other dumb, snot-nosed wastes of human sperm shouldn't hate on Houseshoes really because this album is called (say it with me) 'Rebirth of Detroit', not otherwise. Remember when Pete Rock did NY's Finest and "Niggas Know (feat. J Dilla)" was excluded from the album except for use as a bonus track? NO because you ain't true hiphoppers...now do what Guilty said in "Mash", "go play in traffic"...If you can't except Dilla's family...HOW CAN YOU THINK ABOUT EXCEPTING HIM? Let the great veteran live man.

    The whole point of this album was not only to show Detroit love, but to let unknown artist from THE D shine on the best producers shit. Plan and simple.

  • Big Roy

    A bunch of bums rapping over reject Dilla beats that no one wanted in the first when Dilla was alive. This album is a disgrace. I wouldn't even bother downloading this for free. Its all about Rick Ross and Mystikal in 2012!

    • IT

      So for you "bums" = anyone you aint heard of / not famous And what's Ross and that rapist got to do with this album?

  • R.I.P. James Yancey

    The album is terrible but Its going to get good reviews for reasons sensitive to him having passed. This is the worst J Dilla release, I'm just going to forget It happened and move on. Support his previous work (albums he was sitting on are fine but this was clearly not that) and buy the t-shirts If you want to support the family. Peace

    • R.I.P. James Yancey

      I'm not Houseshoes and dont know what your referring to but this was an awful album. I'm sure Houseshoes is happy to have a track on there named after him.

    • DEAN

      Shoes you just wont stop #LetitGo buid YOUR brand let his mom do what she wants to do, its NOT YOUR MUSIC, I wonder if Pac mom go thru this. Good luck next week on your release I will support that as well!

  • ASEE

    just bought this on iTunes. looking forward to it. had the chance to meet ma dukes in BK a couple years ago and she was really inspiring.

  • letsago

    Big Dilla fan, but why the need for the rappers? Only dude's i mess with on this album are Danny and Guilty. Most Jay Dee fans want that beat tape experience. Some dope samples over some crazy drums. Give us a dope instrumental album and not full of beats we've already heard from all the Dilla tapes floating around. But thanks for giving us somethin, haha gotta throw that in.

  • youngsta

    this album is TRASH! boring shit. give me tyga's careless world or waka flocka's triple f life over this shitty album.

  • Real Hop Music

    RIP JDilla....I'm gon check this out, but NO ELZHI ????????

    Some of these artists that are on there are new artists from Detroit, give the kids a chance. The entire album is perfection btw!

      nah none of the bigger names wanted to be on this shit. they hoped to get eminem, royce, elzhi, big sean n whoever on this but instead they got chuck motherfuckin inglish.

    J. Dilla, you're dead and irrelevant, no one's checkin for u. go back to sleep.

    It's trill to see Esham on there niggas best do they homework on him and get caught up

  • IMO

    LOL alot of you guys commenting are the "j dilla changed my life" tee shirt wearing kind of guys...nothing about you is authentic...half of you probably downloaded this album like the leech you were programmed to be. Saying support real hip hop and actually doing it are 2 different things

    • ASEE

      live your own life fool. you come off as a pitchfork bitch saying shit like that. So you're an "authentic" fan? fuck outta here.

    I hate when they put mediocre MCs on great beats, get elzhi, royce, eminem, slum, the left, more guilty simposn, mr porter, obie trice, some more of the cool kids. real detroit mcs who wont dissapoint. some of these dudes suck

    • G

      Really? I thought the emceeing was pretty good. Better than the rapping on Fantastic, Vol 2 tbh. An Elzhi track definitely woulda helped a lot though. Someone should've gotten that together. Still some nice beats, good album, one of my favs this year.

  • My last name is White

    its good to hear something about j dilla but i believe they should leave his material alone drop a album we never heard of j dillas' or a instrumental album of tracks we haven't heard but don't put together alot of bs when its probably not even going to be J dillas' production work i respect j and i respect his mother for wanting to keep his legacy alive but i hear his legacy ever time time i listen to slum village and busta rhymes' turn me up some ... im not to deep into detroit rappers because some of these D rappers are wack thats just my opinion and P.S I'M FROM THE D

    • @Served

      ur acting feminine bro. acting all sensitive up in dis biotch. Dilla dog all day but this album was pretty wack. I wanna hear some unreleased jay dee too, not these ok rappers over some ill dilla.

    • SERVED

      stop posing, nobody can authenticate if your from detroit or not! if u dont like a song its ok, no need to rant and start bashing niggas tryin to eat though! your either for the cause or your not, if your not get lost!

    Its basically J Taylor VS. DJ Houseshoes. Anyone that chooses to describe or comment on what is going on, as If they know shit is a straight HERB!(See Lathrup Village below)

  • Shannon Cason

    All the Detroit/old friends/internal beefs? The average, everyday, common listener (ME) could really care less... All I want to hear is good music. Period. I'm buying two copies. One on the first, the other on the 15th. Money's tight.

  • Lathrup Village

    Its sad to see DJ Houseshoes still taking shots at this project when he should be focusing on his project Let it Go, without Dilla your name would not even exist and lets be honest your not that skilled at DJing you blend ok and your record selection is cool but you were and never will be on the level of DJ Dez! And lets be real again Dilla dissed you on Strapped The JayLib project look it up, the only reason you went to LA was to get right with him before he passed and at that point who's not going to forgive you on there death bed he was trying to get right! You know that the Yancey Media Group came to you to be involved but you wanted certain artist on the project the same ones you cosign to this day and they didn't want that so you got mad and said well I don't want to be involved then, You flat out are a coward for not trying to reach out to Dilla's Mom infact she still waiting on a call from you but won't call you would rather amuse your twitter fans by saying stupid shit and lets be honest with the exception of a few dudes there are mediocre rappers on your project as well they not the truth because you say they are, who the fuck are you your barely making it in L.A. Now what you could do is be peaceful and Let it Go or continue to act like a immature brat that didn't get his way but either way the Rebirth is coming out. Question whats gonna happen if Dilla mom comes out and diss you? And she hasn't because she's peaceful but she will if you keep up this nonsense.

    • inglewood

      nah, u can tell this nigga really knows House Shoes. u can tell through interviews and stuff that shoes seems like ahard guy to get along with. hes too opinionated and a pessimist. he has some nice tracks but he needs to humble himself for real.

    • buddy take it easy

      you look into this rap music too much geek boy

    • AWAKE IN THE MATRIX

      (its bare foot bully shit so you dont need them houseshoes) lol. dude went to the grave dissin him though but people still let him get away wit living off his name. no way that should happen. whoever bought his album need they ears chopped off.but on a positive note glad to hear something new from dilla though. r.i.p. to the greatest of all time hip hop producer

    Hyped for this project, but that cover art is buggin

  • Raheem

    His Mom is in control of his music now and thats all that matters no one is mad at Pac's Mom for handling his affairs so whats the difference some of you need to grow up especially if you using a alias on here. Guilty Simpson,Phat Kat,Frank Nitt,Danny Brown,Vstyles,Fat Ray,and other dope emcees from the D.

    • Raheem

      You sound real bitter its not your music whats wrong with his Mother doing what she wants to do with her sons music its not about anyone else and if someone has a problem with it contact her, but no you would rather say disrespectful things on the computer why don't you just Let It Go! You sound mad cause you didn't have the input you felt you were entitled too, you built your hold brand on that mans name but his Mom can't do what she wants to do? You don't make those calls his mom does why don't you call instead of doing coward acts on the net.

    • fuck you

      what you mean grow up..im entitled to my opinion and most the cats on here im not checking for..and besides i never heard of a dead man producing a album...i would have left his music alone..just seem like a bunch of mediocre rappers who never got on from the D..and some lames who just want to be a part of something or some ones name to blow up..kill ya self's..

    last time I heard they was gonna have all the mcs from Detroit on this. Now they got Boldy James. fuck that. I was expecting niggas like Royce, Elzhi, that white boy Eminem and even Big Sean who was supposed to be on this shit too. would have been kinda interesting to hear a mainstream artist like Big Sean tryina spit over a DIlla beat.

    • Jacc

      I refuse to listen to anything that has the name "Big Sean" on it. Even if it's J. Dilla or whoever. I don't care. Just don't fuck with that nigga and we'll be straight.

  • Patrick "Playa Boy"

    Man its 2012 now, no one knows who the hell Dilla is and his music is hella outdated. The problem with hip-hop right now is that it is full of washed-up ol ass producers like Premier and Dilla who are still making the same beats that they made in the 90s. The old washed up producers are baller blocker the younger more talented producers like Lody, Lex Luger and Bangladesh. There should be a rule in hiphop banning producers over the age of 35. You don't see many old ballers in the NBA - why is rap music full of these old washed up dudes - it's embarrassing seeing Premier load discs into a ancient drum machine making a wack beat, with wack sample and wack drums.

    What's the point of releasing this fucking garbage. No one is waiting to hear it. No one has any clue who they fuck they are. These are probably some crack heads who can score a few rocks by making this shitty album. Fuck them. YMCMB is the future of hip hop.

  • Anonymous

    i just hope they don't use a bunch of already-released beats on the project, cause then you start to really water down his legacy. also the money needs to go to dilla's estate, whatever amount of lp's they sell.

    • Tiger

      Agreed. My worry was poor beat selection. You've got some gems but you've also got throw aways. I'd much rather have another unheard beat tape than this project tbh especially after the illa j's yancey boys.
