Nas And J Dilla Track 'The Sickness' Released

(Radio.com) J Dilla's legacy in hip-hop continues to live on because of rappers like Nas. Today Nas finds himself on a track with J Dilla and it's called "The Sickness."

Dilla and Nas both spit rhymes over a Madlib beat. The Fader reports Nas recorded his verse more than a decade after Dilla's original recording session. "The Sickness" is one of two iTunes exclusive songs added to the latest posthumous J Dlla album The Diary, which hits retailers on Friday (April 15).

The Queensbridge MC spoke to Zane Lowe earlier this year about Dilla's influence and style of production. "I was a fan fan before I knew who to attach a name to. I was like, 'that's the next guy I'm going to work with.' As I said that, the news came that he was not well' He could do records that was Janet Jackson level and still do Common, the neo-soul thing. He had all those things wrapped up in him," Nas related. Take a listen to Nas and J Dilla on "The Sickness" here.
