Happy Friday! This is the first track on John Yancey's debut album, "Yancey Boys" (2008). It's so perfect for a relaxing day at home. I'd love to be greeted by this track while coming through the front door of my apartment after a long, hard day at work. You'll dig this! I promise! :D
The younger brother of J Dilla, Yancey created his debut album with unused music his brother had created. Under the "Illa J" moniker, Yancey released two EPs and a single and that's about it. He seems to be more active these days with the Slum Village and Yancey Boys groups.
With Slum Village, he helped to produce two mixtapes and an album in 2013. As a member of the Yancey Boys, he released the "Sunset Blvd." album of 2013 as well as a single that same year called, "Quicksand." You can listen to Track 5 from the Sunset Blvd album below.
