The estate of James Yancey, is finally releasing J. Dilla’s long lost but highly-anticipated vocal album, The Diary. The album was completed in 2002 but as Dilla’s health declined, he wasn’t able to put the finishing touches on the album. The masters will re remixed and re-mastered by Dilla’s collaborators, giving the world some more great work from one of hip hop’s true talents. 

“Anthem” is the first single from the album and it’s a big, club banging bit of hip hop.
