D3 is a collective of 3 MC’s: Emer Gea, Kwame and Vestat & 3 beatmakers: Tayreeb, Gea, Zebon.
They made a mixtape as an homage to Detroit artists like J Dilla (R.I.P.), Black Milk, Phat Kat, Guilty Simpson and Slum Village. The reason why they made the mixtape is because they want to introduce the Detroit sound to France. Amsterdam-based producer SirOJ also did a production on the album (U&I) so get this one on iTunes when it drops!

LA-based Noni Limar aka Noni Brown grew up singing in church. She’s done a couple of features, but hasn’t realesed a whole lot yet. I’m very curious about future collaborations and solo projects, because the first track “I Swear” was produced by none other then Sa-Ra Creative Partners. The second track “Monogamy” was produced by Black LA and was featured on the Fresh Selects – Loose Joints mixtape (zipped by Kenny Fresh). Give this lady a visit on her myspace and show some luv!
These days, one would be hard-pressed to find a Hip-Hop fan that is satisfied with the culture’s representation on mainstream radio. Take Los Angeles’ Exile, the man responsible for the exceptional production work on 2007’s critically acclaimed collaboration with rapper Blu, Below the Heavens. Long exasperated by the lack of originality on the radio, the sought-after producer brainstormed a concept to reinvent radio through the use of Hip-Hop’s first technique, sampling. -Allhiphop.com.

Finally available again! One of Jay Dee’s first solo releases was actually more like a Frank-N-Dank record. The highlight is the dark bassline of “Love (Is a Thing of the Past),” but the Phat Kat-guested a-side can hang. Both 12″s originally dropped in 2000 (even before “Welcome 2 Detroit“!) that features Jay Dee’s supreme soulful production with vocals from Frank-N-Dank. B-side wins again, with “Give it Up II” featuring a verse from the mysteriously credited BJ Dilla. Classic Detroit hip hop. Get it here.
We also recommend Houseshoes “The King James Version”. The King James Version is a smoke-filled trip through the used crates of the G.O.A.T Dilla. Cop it here.
