Last Friday (February 7th) marked what would have been the late great J Dilla’s 40th birthday and with it came an honoring of his legacy as one of hip-hop’s most talented producers of all time. His old group Slum Village celebrated the day accordingly and released a new single “Yes Yes” that is produced by none other than the legendary J Dilla himself. As diehard fans know, the Yancy family still has numerous unreleased beats from Dilla in the vault and they pulled one out for this new track. Members of Slum Village (Illa J, T3, Young RJ) all come through with solid verses and “Yes Yes” is just another reminder of why J Dilla is truly one of the best producers in hip-hop history. 

One of J Dilla’s greatest qualities as a producer was how sharp his snares were, and the drums are definitely the center piece of this new Slum Village track. “Yes Yes” is a feel-good track that features Illa J, T3, and Young RJ all flowing nicely over a beat that is hard not to sound good on. This song should be a welcome inclusion on Slum Village’s upcoming album that is not yet titled, but set to be released sometime this Spring. Take some time to enjoy “Yes Yes” and appreciate how innovative J Dilla was as an artist as he proves to be a continued inspiration in hip-hop to this day.
