Stones Throw To Re-Release J Dilla's "Donuts" As Vinyl Box Set
Stones Throw is planning to release an all-vinyl box set of J Dilla's "Donuts."
Last week, news broke that Ma Dukes' Yancey Media Group was planning to release a slew of previously unheard material from the legendary J Dilla. Now, in a recent report from HipHopWired, it looks like fans of Jay Dee have even more to rejoice about, as a new box set of Donuts is slated to drop.
This January, famed indie label Stones Throw will release a special edition box set of J Dilla's famed 2006 instrumental album Donuts. The eight record set will feature the album pressed in 45 vinyl record format.
Along with Dilla's seminal album, the box set will include wax pressings of hard-to-find singles from the legendary Detroit producer and emcee. Among these singles are the out-of print "Fan Club 45" featuring Oh No and Roc C, and "Murder Goons" and "Sniper Elite" featuring Ghostface Killah and DOOM, respectively.
Head over to Stones Throw's website to pre-order the box set now.
We do it for the people.
From donated clothes, to caps and gowns
It's a little shout to my black and brown
Folks that know the game, not in class to clown
Had the funny accent, look who's laughing now
See Samir came here to grind, and he slaved at
Every minimum wage job, but he saved that
Brought his sis here on scholarship to make stacks
Working as a surgeon she bought a whip, and payed cash
No time to whine, we just face facts
Lets fit 6 in the back and lets take that
To the best restaurants, make reservations
Since we out here, since they made reservations
For first Nations and they never made reparations
The Natives probably relate more to immigration
So this for y'all too, and I can't forget the Haitians
Here for an education. Its a celebration.
