Editorial Reviews

Product Description

2009 release from the late cult Hip Hop icon containing 25 unreleased tracks mixed by DJ Pete Rock. The quiet, prolific producer was just beginning to capitalize on his cult status when he sadly passed at age 32 due to Lupus-related complications. Jay Stay Paid is a 25 track collection of unreleased Dilla beats mixed and arranged by Pete Rock. While mostly instrumental, J$P also offers a few guests vocals from artists that Dilla worked with or admired including Black Thought of The Roots, MF DOOM, M.O.P., Blu and others.

Amazon.com

Under the reverent direction of Pete Rock, J Dilla’s posthumous, 28-track mix highlights guest spots by both hip-hop legends (Black Thought, Doom) and lesser-knowns (Frank Nitty, Cue D), the variety of which throws the full weight of Dilla’s production savvy into the sad vacuum left by his death at 32. Sadly, the guy was just getting started, but he could already mix circles (er, donuts) around almost every producer of his generation. --Jason Kirk

I really can't say this album is better than "Donuts" because that was a special album for myself and many but Jay Stay Paid is a much "harder" album than the previous....HARDCORE!

I am an big time JDilla fan, hear is a testament to what good music can do to affect your everyday life in a positive way. Peace to Ma Dukes and Pete Rock for blessing us with more from your favorite producers favorite producers. It is such a tragedy that with all of the contributions this brother gave to hip-hop he still somehow goes under the radar with all of this bubble gum pop-hop that is readily available to lull you back to sleep. WAAAAKKEE UUUP!! Cop this if you havne't already Power Equal D.J. Rod-ex

This is a dope LP mixed by the #1 Soul Brother Pete Rock. The albums consists mostly instrumentals entirely produced by Dilla.

Pete Rock does a great job mixing the LP. There's also a few song with raps from Black Thought(The Roots), Blu(Blu & Exile), Raekwon(Wu Tang), Havoc(Mobb Deep), Lil Fame(M.O.P.).

I'm enjoying this album.

R.I.P. To James Yancey!!!

Some of J Dilla's unused beats have been put together for this album.

A few of them have rhyming on top, many do not.

The beats are fantastic, it gets my five stars for the beats alone.

Innovative and funky, mixing samples and keyboards.

Some of J Dilla's best work, one of the albums of the year.

RIP DILLA!

Dilla was always a favorite producer of mine before he passed away and he remains one of my favorites. This is a 25 track collection that plays out a bit like a radio station with Pete Rock providing the commentary. This CD is just plain dope. People complain about the format and the lack of rappers, but none of that detracts from what is dope dope music. These are some Dilla's best beats. 1 or 2 don't hit as hard, hence the score, but definitely one of the best CDs released this year.
