I either jumped the gun or its very serendipitous that Shake just posted this over at 2dopeboyz at about the same time I was hitting the publish button on the previous post. Damn it 2db, you’re always staying one step ahead of me!
Anyway. Y’all already know how I feel about the The Roots’ Dilla tribute, and I’m tired, so I’m gonna keep it short and sweet. Remember Dice Raw from the good ol’ Illadelph Halflife and Things Fall Apart days? Yeah that’s him. And he’s rapping over Dilla Joints. It’s not the same as the first time they got together, but it’s good to hear Dice Raw rhyming with The Roots again (sorta).
Dice, Dilla, Pregunta also features Charles P Bailey, Rick Friedrich, and Yameen Allworld. Free download link and tracklist after the jump.
I know that this came out back in February, but the blogs were too busy with Dilla tributes around that time for this album to shine properly. I also realize that a bunch of better-known music blogs reposted this album not too long ago, so if you already downloaded this or saw this elsewhere, my bad – give a brother a late pass. But if you’re a Dilla or Roots fan (if you’re not a fan of both, close this window and don’t ever read my posts again) and you haven’t listened to this totally free and awesome tribute album yet, you need to do yourself a favor and download this now.
14 Dilla tribute tracks performed by the Roots. I believe this is what they mean when they say ”unfuckwithable.”
