Logic has revealed that he made an album full of unreleased beats from the late J Dilla.
In a recent YouTube livestream, the rapper briefly explained that the release of the project remains to be seen and that he’s more excited to listen to Boldy James‘ effort over unreleased Dilla beats.
“I did a whole J Dilla album, but that’s another story for another time,” he said. “And it was nothing with the estate… everything was fine, I was like, ‘I’m straight.’ Like, I recorded this whole J Dilla album with all unreleased beats and shit, and I was like, ‘I’m OK.’ I’d rather see Boldy [James] do it, he’s gonna f*cking kill it. The fact that I could even rap on it was really good. And who knows, maybe it’ll see the light of day one day. We’ll see.”

James’ upcoming release, which is entitled “Drug Dilla”, was teased in June 2022 and formally announced in October. The rapper informed Andrew Barber of Fake Shore Drive Radio that the record will feature “the last of the Dilla stash,” adding, “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.”
