Fans of this post will appreciate this recent update:
J Dilla – Anthem (feat. Frank-N-Dank)
I originally knew this song as “We F’d Up” from the lost Dilla MCA album (thanks again to Tim for hookin’ me up with that) with a beat by Kanye that was alright, but to me always stuck out a little bit from the rest of the production on the album, and honestly sounded like a recycled version of “Takeover” in a lot of ways (also produced by Kanye around the same time). This new beat, which is actually an old beat crafted by Dilla himself, makes the track even more enjoyable and lively to me, I think it’s a welcome addition to the now heaping catalog of posthumous Dilla releases.
As a bonus, here’s a link to the B-Side of this version of “Anthem” Rappcats is putting out, also from the lost MCA album (now being referred to as The Diary?), and definitely the funniest Dilla song of all time. If you need some extra motivation to click that link, just imagine Dilla in this scene and that’s pretty much what “Trucks” is like.
