If you're like us, you've undoubtedly heard the Dilla Joints mixtape released early this year. If you haven't, it was basically a collection of some of the best J Dilla beats reinterpreted by Philly’s own Legendary Roots crew. After ?uesto put the tracks up on his Swift FM page, fans soon went after them and compiled the mix we’ve come to know and love. Like some of the best production from the man himself, these Dilla inspired Roots instrumentals begged to be rhymed over.
North Philly's own Dice Raw has thankfully stepped up to the plate and released the Dice, Dilla, Pregunta Mixtape. Featuring collabs with locals Charles P. Bailey, Rick Friedrich, and Yameen Allworld, Dice really knocks this one out the park. The mix is an excellent addition for Dilla and Roots aficionados, or anybody looking for a solid dose of good hip-hop.
Local illustrator/emcee Dewey Saunders is responsible for the rad album art.
