Illa J To Release Album Produced By J Dilla

John "Illa J" Yancey, younger brother of late great genius producer James Yancey (aka Jay Dee aka J Dilla), is currently completing his debut album for Delicious Vinyl. With the multi-talented Illa J rhyming and singing over a treasure trove of previously untouched Jay Dee gems, the project represents both a full-circle collaboration and a whole new beginning in the story of the musically exceptional Yancey brothers.

To mark the 1st Anniversary of his passing on 10th February 2006 & to celebrate what would have been his 33rd Birthday on 7th February 2007 The Doctor’s Orders have decided to throw a party dedicated to the memory and the music of this incredible Hip-Hop producer.

’Volume One’ is the album which first highlighted the immense talent of producer and founding Slum Village member Jay-Dee aka J-Dilla. Ironically, for a project which garnered such huge critical praise within the industry it was never officially released, and became instead one of hip hop's most bootlegged releases ever - 'platinum on the street' as Jay-Dee himself called it in an interview, at the same time thanking those responsible for putting him on the map as a producer.
