N.S.: The late, great J Dilla is widely regarded as one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time. Since his death in 2006, Dilla’s mother Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey has worked tirelessly to further her son’s legacy, and her latest effort is the new project Motor City. Inspired by Dilla’s beloved hometown, Motor City is a collection of rare and unreleased Jay Dee instrumentals, hand-selected and sequenced by Ma Dukes. Conceived as a “letter” to her son, Motor City is packaged in a limited-edition mailing envelope, complete with a handwritten message from Ma Dukes to J Dilla inside. This 19-track collection is available at physical and digital outlets worldwide.
All formats include an exclusive mix of Motor City by Dilla’s close friend J Rocc, a world-renown DJ and founder of the Beat Junkies. With the release date approaching, we're debuting another exclusive Motor City blend by J Rocc. Available now on Soundcloud, this blend features rare vocals from Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes.

M.S.: Houston's own Kayne Martin releases another one "Keeping On" over production by Vanilla! Kayne speaks on realizing how far he could be if he actually focused more and quit letting things like stress, love, losses, and the past distract him. His second verse touches deeply on what direction he feels like God is taking him. The song mainly explains his thoughts of holding on or letting go.
