Ma Dukes Talks To Hip-Hop DX About Jay Stay Paid & Busta Rhymes

madukes Jay Stay Paid dropped today, and I woke up bright and early this morning to go get it at our local Best Buy. I have been listening to it non-stop all day since around 10AM, and I can already tell you that it is spectacular. Hopefully all of you readers out there will go out and support real Hip-Hop and pick up the album, you won’t be let down.

I wish I could have gotten this up earlier, but I’ve been pretty busy for the last few days. Ma Dukes recently sat down with the folks over at Hip Hop DX and talked about a few issues that had to do with Jay Stay Paid. According to the article, Dilla’s estate has new people in charge and things are rapidly turning around from the dis-heartening situation that had been mentioned earlier this year. It appears as though his daughters are going to start getting some of the money that they deserve from their late father’s craft. The Yancey family has been going through so much for the last three years, I am so happy to hear that everything is turning around for them. My guess is that we are going to be hearing a lot more emcees over Dilla treats because, she also mentioned that there won’t be as many troubles when it comes to using Dilla beats.

Ma Dukes also mentione the ever-looming situation with Busta Rhymes. According to Ma Dukes, Busta was wrongfully sued by the last people that were in charge of the Dilla estate (Arty Erk & Micheline Levine). They claimed that Busta didn’t have the right to use those beats, but Ma Dukes begs to differ. She says that Busta wouldn’t take anything from Dilla, and I agree with her, Busta was very passionate about Dilla. Busta has broken the long term vow to use a Dilla beat on every album of his with Back On My B.S. because of the bogus legal situation. I really hope Ma Dukes & Busta can talk and figure things out because I’m pretty sure that Dilla would never want it to be the way it is right now.

Again, you can read the original article here. Make sure you go out and get Jay Stay Paid NOW, it’s a great collection of Dilla’s material. I will have a review up of the album in the next few days.
