BBE Records has announced that they will release producer J Dilla's posthumous album, The Shining, this July.
Dilla (born James Yancey) had completed the majority of The Shining before his untimely passing due to health complications related to lupus on February 10. His mother, Maureen Yancey, entrusted Karriem Riggins, Dilla's friend/frequent collaborator, with completing the final pieces of the project.
The Shining features appearances by Busta Rhymes, Common, Pharaoh Monche and Madlib, among others. It is also accompanied by a DVD celebrating Dilla's life and work, produced by Okayplayer Films' Brian Atkins.
"This album is inspired by and represents love," Riggins said of The Shining. "All the artists that contributed to this project Dilla considered family and when the world hears it, they will see that the love bleeds thru the music."
Later this year, Jay Love Japan, another Dilla album, will be released on Operation Unknown. It features completed collaborations with Ghostface Killah, MF Doom, Skillz, Madlib, Busta and more.
Hip-Hop fans and artists around the world have been showing J Dilla and his family love since they found out the shocking news. Last month, Justus League affiliate Skyzoo released "Sky's Last Donut," a tribute song to the fallen beatsmith.
Donations on behalf of Jay Dee's mother can be made to Mrs. Maureen Yancey, and sent to 132 N. Sycamore Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90036, or by bank wire to Wells Fargo Bank of Los Angeles, CA, Routing Number: 122000247, Account Number: 6043250676, 800-869-3557.
J Dilla's The Shining will hit stores on July 11. Props: Sohh
