Longtime fans of J Dilla have most likely heard the previously released version of “Trucks,” featured on his Pay Jay LP, and in anticipation of Dilla’s rap album The Diary, we now bring you a newly mixed and mastered version of the tune. Including a third verse that didn’t make it onto Dilla’s final version of the song, fans can expect to find this one included with his previously released single “Anthem” on the recently released Anthem 12” vinyl, which you can order now by clicking here.

Both “Anthem” and “Trucks” were produced, and feature complete vocal performances, by Dilla. The tracks come straight from multi-track masters found on 2-inch tape shortly after Dilla’s passing in 2006. These songs have been mixed by engineer Dave Cooley, who worked extensively with Dilla during his years in Los Angeles. Using Dilla’s original demo mixes as his guide, Cooley attempted to finalize Dilla’s vision for these tracks, while keeping all of the elements that Dilla had in place in his original demos present.

Dilla’s lost vocal album, The Diary, is still slated to release sometime this year, via Pay Jay Records, but for now enjoy the new music down below.
