Press Release

“I’m real happy that Welcome 2 Detroit was done by BBE. Because I don’t think another label would have helped him embrace his full creativity and given him the control to make it a piece of who he was! Because of BBE he was able to pour more of himself into it, into every bit of music on this album. His spirit lives in Welcome 2 Detroit. It’s him! Alive and thriving in every song!” – Ma Dukes A specially remastered 20th anniversary edition of this classic hip hop album. Contains the original album and instrumentals, plus a stash of previously unreleased offcuts and outtakes from Dilla's private tapes. Includes a brand new remix of 'Think Twice' by Japanese DJ/producer Muro and a cover version of 'Rico Suave Bossa Nova' by Brazilian jazz-funk legends Azymuth. J Dilla's debut solo album, recorded at age 27, and the first ever release in BBE's iconic 'Beat Generation' series.
