Yancey Media Group is set to release Rebirth Of Detroit, an album featuring some of the Motor City’s best talent over heretofore unheard J Dilla production, on June 12. The first strike from Rebirth is Danny Brown’s “Jay-Dee’s Revenge.” Not unlike the blaxploitation flick that serves as the track’s namesake, Brown seems to channel the spirit of the young, lawless, hustler that starred in his Detroit State of Mind series and The Hybrid. Over unsurprisingly stellar production from the late Detroit deity, Brown reminds us that he’s more than just a funny haircut and missing teeth. He’s a beast.
As a bonus, a video trailer that shows that the spirit of J Dilla and the D is alive and well is included below. Physical copies of the 25-track project will be sold through www.officialjdilla.com.
