This was originally going to be a concept album called 'The Four K's and an AK', meaning I'd have had Kendrick Lamar, Kno, K'Naan and K-Os along with one track from Akrobatik. But I decided that most of my playlists are liked because of the new artists that people discover with them, so I've thrown in a few extras and taken away some of the original tracks.

Let me know your thoughts.

    Yeah, gotta love Tracy. It's from his first album 'My Life is a Movie'. He remixed it for his Dusty Foot album:

    In the Beginning:

    Yeah the Seasons joint was in there to introduce Kendrick Lamar!! "So how we gon' start it" and then he comes in! He's dope, my favourite new Artist that I've listened to this year...

    Yeah, I'm a fan of K'Naan, but enjoy k-os more... you into k-os?

    Yeah Ill Biskits, their "A Better Day" is nice too...

    Thanks for listening Dilla! :tu

    Joyful Rebellion and Yes! are two great, great albums, well worth getting Dilla, IMO.

    True though about there being too many to keep up on... that's what makes it fun though.

    Roc Marciano is nice from what I've heard (very little though). Not got the Ski Beatz though, is it just a compilation of his beats with featured artists?

    Album art was just photoshopped a bit from something I found and then placed on an album cover.

    No probs on the tracklist, always try to show what's there for people to be tempted to download.
