James Yancey/ Jay Dee/ J Dilla: She'll Be Afraid, Silent Giant and 'Sup
From: Unknown (Unknown)

Busta Rhymes
: WOO-HAH!! Got You All In Check Ft. Rampage The Last Boy Scout
(The Jay Dee Other Shit Remix)
From: Woo-Hah!! Got You All In Check/Everything Remains Raw CD Maxi-Single (Elektra, Feb. 27, 1996)

A: "There's nothing more precious than my Coogi's..."
Fast-forward to R.J. Rice Studios commercial where spray-painted graffiti lists groups who've procured Rice's services - one such group was Slum Village who were introduced to Jay Dee by Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest.
Busta Rhymes: Woo-Hah!! Maxi-Single introduced me to the late Jay Dee: Hip Hop's Shy Giant. On this work J Dilla remixed both: "WOO-HAH!! Got You All In Check - The Jay Dee Bounce Remix" (the remix instrumental is also included on the maxi-single) and "WOO-HAH!! Got You All In Check - The Jay Dee Other Shit Remix featuring Rampage The Last Boy Scout" (my favorite of the two).
When artistry sways me to interest I, commonly, inherently delve into the entire body of work of said artist. As foretold, habitually, I systematized my "Jay Dee", as was his foremost moniker, assemblage.
My collection includes several instrumental shorts that I have never heard before be they offered by Detroit sources (Waajeed/Bling47 or otherwise), audioblogs or radio: local, foreign (including BBC 1Xtra's: Benji B nor Gilles Peterson) or pirated
(although such offering(s) could have escaped me - however; my doubt is elephantine).
As a consequence of never having a reference for these songs (three (3) of thirty-four (34) previously unreleased songs - oddly all starting with "S") I have named them arbitrarily - as slapdash (no offense intended as I too am guilty) as did
DJ O-Dub - such nomenclature is inadvertently artificial. In advance I apologize for any perceived adulteration of J Dilla's music.
