Boldy James says that he’s got “the last of the Dilla stash” and is readying a project produced by the legend.
“I’ve actually got an announcement to make,” James said on Phoenix’s Trill store. “You talking about they don’t even know what’s about to happen, you don’t even know what’s about to happen. I got a whole entirely produced J Dilla project that I’m about to drop. I would tell you the name of it, but I had to tell you that. I got the last of the Dilla stash.”

He continued: “A lot of people owe their success, you know, not owe their success, but he alley-ooped a lot of people’s success. The list goes on, I’m not about to start name-dropping, but if you don’t know who this guy is, you need to do your history. J Dilla, Detroit, stand up.”
This wouldn’t be the first time James has rapped over beats by Dilla. Back in 2012, he was featured on Dilla’s posthumous album Rebirth of Detroit. He also hinted about having a stash of tracks with Dilla back in 2020 during an interview with HipHopDX.
