- including bonus 7"
Released posthumously, and reissued here with a bonus 7” on Nature Sounds, Jay Stay Paid is an extensive collection of previously unheard Dilla cuts, deftly mixed and arranged by legendary East Coast producer Pete Rock. Despite the sheer quantity of the great man’s work that’s on show here, this is not a superficial whistle-stop tour. Rock, himself a huge influence on Dilla’s style, has worked hard to showcase the best of the beats we never heard, so while there are plenty of light skits and sketches, tracks like ‘I Told Y’all’, ‘Blood Sport’ and ‘See That Boy Fly’ are given room to breathe and flow, making this much more than just a glorified mixtape. J.D. may have passed on, but the staggering quantity and quality of his output will ensure he remains a part of the hip-hop landscape for many years to come.
