[NEW!] J Dilla - "We F'd Up" featuring Frank-N-Dank, Prod. by Kanye West

The hotness.

This is a rumored track off of Dilla's unreleased MCA album, Pay Jay, which was shelved by the record company back in 2003, but is reportedly coming out soon...one could only hope. The track was recorded during that time, and is produced by Kanye. He made the beat in 2001, and it was originally gonna be used by jay-Z on The Takeover, but had trouble clearing the Doors sample.

“Dilla was signed to a solo deal with MCA Records in 2002 and completed an album in 2003. Although Dilla was known as a producer rather than an MC, he chose to rap on the album and have the music produced by some of his favorite producers such as Madlib, Pete Rock, Hi-Tek, Supa Dave West, Kanye West, Nottz, Waajeed and others. The album was shelved due to internal changes at the label and MCA folding into Geffen Records. In a 2007 video interview, Dilla’s friend DJ House Shoes alluded to the possibility of the MCA album finally seeing an official release through Stones Throw Records in the future. In April 2008, the album, called Pay Jay, began circulating. BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ Benji B played songs from it on his April 18 show, saying that the album is coming out…”

RIP Dilla. Turn It Up. Download here.
