After J Dilla’s untimely death a few years back, there’s been much speculation as to who would carry on the legacy. DJ Mick Boogie used some of his tracks and did a mixtape with Busta Rhymes, which was a pretty nice big-up, but since then there hasn’t been anything too major, besides some unreleased tracks produced by Dilla for MF Doom and Ghostface. Now, Dilla’s little brother is apparently carrying on the Yancey tradition and is rapping over big brother’s tracks. The latest is entitled “Illa J,” available for download below. The album is entitled “Yancey Brothers,” I believe. Let us know what you think if little man is worthy of the great one’s tracks. Illa J – “We Here”(produced by J Dilla) To Preview Track Click Here

A few years ago, Papoose was the biggest artist to come out of New York since…possibly Jay-Z. With unbelievable potential, a ridiculous flow, clever vocabulary, hilarious punchlines and a dinstinct voice, Pap was poised to bring hip-hop back to New York in a major way. He even aligned himself with heavyweights like Busta Rhymes and DJ Kay Slay to insure his rise. However, a few years, a lot of mixtapes, and a hefty fall from relevance later, Pap is apparently still making music. I have to say, I was really excited about Papoose when he first came out, and his album, Nacirema Dream, was one I was ready to shell out some cash for. But, after this long, I think I speak for all of his fans in saying I just don’t care anymore, because too much other good music has come and gone. To give Pap another chance, check out his new track “Get it Poppin Again” below, and let us know what you think. Papoose – Get it Poppin Again
Not quite sure if this is for real or not, but word is that Irv Gotti has snatched up Busta after supposedly working out a deal with Dr. Dre to let Bussa Bus out of his contract over at Aftermath/Interscope. The deal between Busta and Irv is a distribution deal which will take Flipmode through to 2014. Do people even look that far into the future today?
Why is Deelishis making accusations that Bussa Bus is really on the DL. I guess she knows that 5 mins of fame she secured by having a booty and a spot on a reality TV show is close to up, so she gotta keep relevant somehow. Turns out she was frothing at the mouth and trying to be all coy about it to the author of Hiding in Hip-Hop. Terrance Dean. Dean a former MTV employee has written a book about being a gay man within the entertainment and Hip-Hop industries and he was in Deelishis’s home town of Detroit promoting the book when she started to spin her web, saying that she knew a couple of things about a ‘rapper’ she used to date. I mean the only reason the finger points to Busta is because she said he had cut off his hair…but I bet there are plenty of rappers on her list. Do we believe her? Or is she a woman who got knocked back?
