Taken from my compilation set of Dilla Edits!

There are over 70 other edits on my AudioMack page!

I did this dj friendly edit of this sick tune from the 2003 Champion Sound LP by Jaylib. Jaylib is a collabo of the late great Dilla and the legendary Madlib. This album is an easy all time hip hop album top 10 for me personally. I love both producers as they both have an impressive discography.
The original album release contains a track called The Red, which had the Cris Williamson - Shine On Straight Arrow. On the rerelease of that album the lyrics were the same but the beat was changed due to sample clearance issues. Glad I got the original album, because the original version is a monster.

This particular tune you're listening to is produced by Madlib while Dilla alongside Frank-N-Dank take care of the vocals. Do check the tune they used to sample this. It is a Paul Mauriat track called Melancholy Man.
