J Dilla’s Sought-After Collaboration With Supa Dave West Comes To The Light (Audio)

Not even at the halfway mark, 2014 has been especially big in unreleased J Dilla/Jay Dee music. The Slum Village co-founder’s unheard gems continue to surface, this time by way of a collaboration with “Supa” Dave West. The De La Soul, Talib Kweli, and E-40 producer had a particular knock that appealed to Dilla Dog back in the early 2000s, when the Detroit native was said to be compiling an album with productions from some of his favorites.

Although uncompleted as an album, Supa Dave West and Dilla’s “The Doe” comes to light on Give ‘Em What They Want, an EP made of three tracks. According to ego trip, two thirds of the EP, including this joint, are made by Dave in late 2001.
