Newark, NJ—Aug 13, 2008 /prbuzz/ --- Du “Do It All” Kelly (of
multi-platinum Hip Hop group Lords of the Underground), along with The
Jersey Boyz (of Alkatraxx) has just completed a new mixtape entitled
Dilla Gorillaz—a J-Dilla Tribute Album. Alkatraxx artists, The
Jersey Boyz (Cartel, Aktual, & Rouga) and Do It All pay homage to the
late James “J-Dilla” Yancey by spilling pure, unadulterated lyrics
over some of Dilla’s best tracks. This 29-track release is a
testament to the legacy Dilla has left behind and what he’s meant to
the world of Hip Hop, as evidenced by the passion shown on the
microphone by the Garden State-bred collective.

Kelly states, “I want to be sure to give credit where credit is
due, and show one of the greatest to ever do it behind the boards what
it would’ve been like to bless his beats. I also want to let the
world know that it’s necessary to pay respects to Ms. Maureen Yancey
(Dilla’s mother), and do what’s right by showing her that the Hip
Hop community cares by donating to the James Yancey Estate.”

Monetary gifts and donations can be made by wire or in person to:

Wells Fargo Bank of Los Angeles
c/o Ms. Maureen Yancey
132 Sycamore Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90036

James “J-Dilla” Yancey—a Detroit native, was known for working
with a number of artists, including Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, A Tribe
Called Quest, and was a founding member of Slum Village (with Baatin
and T3). On February 10, 2006, J-Dilla died as a result of cardiac
arrest. The critically-acclaimed instrumental CD Donuts had just been
released on his 32nd birthday--3 days earlier.

Dilla Gorillaz—a J-Dilla Tribute Album (Lord Gang Worldwide,
LLC/Alkatraxx, LLC) will be available on various Hip Hop websites.
