INDIE ONLY LIMITED EDITION 2 X VINYL LP.

King Underground & Delicious Vinyl present a lovingly re-issued version of this sought after & seminal hip-hop record, with all beats by J Dilla, featuring Common, Talib Kweli, Posdnuos, T-3 & Guilty Simpson, and the first time re-issued on vinyl since 2013.

Back in 2008, just two years after James Yancey aka J Dilla's passing, Mike Ross, founder of Delicious Vinyl, presented J Dilla's mother Maureen Yancey (aka MaDukes), with a vault of unreleased beats from her late son. Following Dilla's childhood friend (and longtime collaborator) Frank Nitty (Of Frank N' Dank) was a part of a group of confidants, who lovingly went through the treasure chest of music, formulating a tribute to their departed friend the best way they knew how.

 With hundreds upon hundreds of instrumentals to choose from, Nitty and Dilla's brother Illa J narrowed the pile down to a collection of about 50 tracks, some of which would become the building blocks of their debut 2013 Yancey Boys album, 'Sunset Blvd'. Upon its release in 2013, the LP became an instant classic, gaining recognition from tastemakers across the world.

 Even without J Dilla's presence during the record's creation, Frank & Illa J were able to harness Dilla's omniscient creative energy during the production process of making Sunset Blvd. His contributions and spirit couldn't help but permeate the beats, the undeniable foundation for the tracks on the record. "Beyond the beats, his fngerprints were all over the record, in the guest artists we chose to ask for a feature, to the guys mixing and mastering. Most of whom he (J Dilla) worked with before he passed", said Frank.

 Through Delicious Vinyl, 'Sunset Blvd' and the accompanying instrumentals were both released on wax in 2013, but have not been reissued since, until now. Thankfully, UK based label King Underground (AKA KU) have once again made this seminal record (and instrumentals) available.
