  You might have just seen her on Jimmy Fallon with Chance The Rapper performing “Blessings.” When Jamila isn’t putting her beautiful touch on Chance’s songs she’s creating beautiful music of her own. The Closed Sessions artist just released “Heavn.” Jamila’s beautiful voice & lyrics over a Roots x J Dilla beat give you a real slice of heaven. “Heavn” speaks of an old real love.. Jamila connects with her roots bringing you a story and a trip through time. With the release of “Heavn” we’re getting excited for the songstress to release her solo album. We love listening to Jamila’s music & hear everything she’s working on.

Listen to “Heavn” here.

J-Dilla - "Filth"

Anybody can easily tell you that J-Dilla’s one of the best Hip Hop producers of his generation, so whenever you hear anything “new” from the late producer it’s worth taking the time to give it a listen.

Today a previously-unreleased track titled “Filth” was released to give us all a look into the posthumous Dilla record, The King of Beats (Ma Dukes Yancey Collector’s Edition Box Set). This special box features 40 tracks and was curated by Dilla’s mother, Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey. Yancey told Rolling Stone: “Now that I’m out of mourning and full of insight and feeling my son’s energy radiate around me, I wanted to do something different but iconic; Something that people would preserve and relish for a lifetime that spoke quality.”

Hear “Filth” below. Continue Reading
