Jay Dilla being taken away from us too soon is an absolute tragedy, but we're blessed that his music will continue to live on for a long time. Last night on Dr. Dre's Beats 1 show "The Pharmacy," Dre premiered a never before heard Dilla track called "Gangsta Boogie." The song features Dilla himself along with Snoop Dogg and Kokane backing him up with production by Hi-Tek. The song goes in as possible on what a boogie ought to sound like with a beautifully jazzy beat and Dilla getting really into it. Snoop and Kokane are the perfect back up for Dilla, delivering ultra-chill vocal parts, like one giant party. It's the perfect track for a chill-ass Sunday afternoon, and a good taste of Dilla's upcoming posthumous album The Diary.
