Yancey Boys’ New Album, ‘Sunset Blvd,’ To Feature Unreleased J Dilla Beats

yancey-boys-554We officially have every reason available to be hype for the new album from the Yancey Boys, aka the duo of Frank Nitt and Illa J. According to HipHopDX, the record is set to feature the likes of Common, Posdnous, SlimKid3, Eric Roberson and Guilty Simpson, among others. Not only that, but the album, Sunset Blvd, also boasts previously unreleased Dilla instrumentals. Given the players involved, we’re confident that this will be more in line with, say, The Shining and Jay $tay Paid instead of last year’s disappointing Rebirth of Detroit.

For reference, Illa J is Dilla’s little brother while Frank Nitt was a very close friend to Dilla. They collaborated numerous times over the years, particularly when Nitt was still releasing music as one half of Frank N Dank. It’s no surprise, then, that Nitt is the curator of Dilla’s music catalog. [via]
