“Big Thangs” F. Esham (Video)

    The next posthumous J Dilla LP is out tomorrow. Entitled Rebirth of Detroit, the album was orchestrated by the late producer’s mother, “Ma Dukes” Yancey, and will be out on Ruff Draft, the label she founded and runs. As we previously reported, Rebirth is packed with guest spots, one of which is Detroit veteran Esham on this track, “Big Thangs.”

    The song’s video was directed by Nic Notion, and it’s got a totally classic feel to accompany Dilla‘s sharp, skittering beat: some sick dance moves and clips of Esham spitting mixed with a few shots of the Detroit area? These visuals are minimal but strong, much like the track itself. Watch the video below.
