Posted in Media, Video with tags , , , , on Wednesday, May 27, 2009 by Tim Althaus

As many of you know J Dilla’s new album, Jay $tay Paid comes out this Tuesday on Nature Sounds Records. Havoc of Mobb Deep is one of the cats that is rapping over Dilla’s treats on the record. Havoc shows a great deal of respect for Dilla talking about how good he was at flipping samples, “It’s not what you sample, it’s how you sample it”. Havoc also talks about the first time that he heard Dilla (on a Tribe project), the fact that he would put Dilla in his top 10, how he chose the beat he rapped over on Jay $tay Paid & working with Raekwon.

I am going to throw a guess out there and say that this is going to be one of the best albums of the year. Follow me after the jump for the tracklisting. Continue reading
