Illa J and Frank Nitt have rather high expectations set for them with their upcoming Yancey Boys album. Produced entirely by the late J Dilla, the two will have to navigate through what has ended up being a storm of drama and lackluster posthumous releases. But it seems like they have this one under control, as all previous singles have been sounding pretty damn good, including the newly presented “Quicksand”. It is tough to mess up a beat as smooth as this, especially when Common and Dezi Paige come through to provide stunning vocals respectively. Luckily, Illa And Frank come through, too, with two verse that see the Detroit players holding their own.
Stream “Quicksand” below. Sunset Blvd is coming soon via Delicious Vinyl.
